in the Chapter upgrading (Revolution-Doc)
there is written:
For traditional distribution users, simply upload the files over the existing ones, and then run setup. For the advanced distribution, do the same, but you’ll only need to do so for the core/ and setup/ directories.
Make sure that you don’t overwrite core/config/config.inc.php, and that it’s writable.
I upgraded from rc2 to 2.0.0-pl and got a problem with the full installer, not the advanced one (thread: blank page in frontend after upgrading
). As i experienced the problem is this: When you have installed extras (like Wayfinder or Breadcrumbs) and you replace the folder "core", the contents of core/packages are overwritten and even cannot be uninstalled from the manager. The fix: You have to copy the contents of your "old" (backupped
) package-folder into the core/packages-folder, than uninstall the extras with the manager -> package management and install them new.
Perhaps I did not understand the term "simply upload the files over the existing ones" correctly. For me this means "replace the folders"; perhaps it actually means "merge folders"? If this is the case, one should mention it explicitely in the documentation. Perhaps it would make sense to mention all the folders which could contain stuff that should not be overwritten.
