Upgrading from 1.5 to 1.6 is it a simple job ???

#1 Postby Mega B » Jan 22, 2010 7:14 pm

I have our site running really smooth at the moment it is using version 1.5 so what would i gain in doing this upgrade and is it a simple job ??? I dont want to loose the look of the front end in any shape or form so i am thinking if it aint broke dont fix it.
What have people gained as a result of the upgrade and was it worth the effort,i lost our 1st setup about a month after we 1st started as the hosting people went bust but we rebuilt and as i dont have a great amount of html knowledge i am thinking will i gain anything.

Can i have some feedback from your upgrade experiances please.

well , i cant give feedback but i can give you some help for upgrading

before upgrading , make a backup of everything

so you got all your files in 1 dir

make a backup of your mysql database , so you dont lose your database

then lets get started

probaly the tables are just hte same , exept the files

you got 2 folders , a template folder and all toehr folders

in the template folder are your custom designs , so keep them serperated

upload everything exept the congif file ( xfsconfig.pm or so )

then it should work already

if i am not wrong
run convert.pl to apply new changes of the new version (or read the readme , safes me a lot of explaing :P)

and if it doesnt do what it should do , then just start over

replace your backup and try again , or dont try it again if you got to mutch problems with it

@PC that has been a great help and i may get it done on monday,i wont be doing but my partner in crime will do if he is back from vacation if not i will have to pay someone to do it for me.The money is not a issue its just that i dont want to loose anything and that is a small worry that i have but if its backed up i cannot see that i will be one.
