Updating Xibo server to latest release

Hello,

I am looking to update a Xibo server release 1.4.0 (running on Ubuntu) to the latest release. Are there any steps required or does the new release update the old installation automatically ?

Regards

Gavin

Upgrade instructions are in the release notes :smile:

You must make sure you have a working backup though before you upgrade, and a new enough version of PHP (at least 5.3.3 at present).

Thanks Alex, should have looked in the obvious place first :smile:

No problem.

That’s quite a version jump and lots has changed in that time, so be prepared to work over your old layouts to adjust things like font sizing as the way that’s handled has changed significantly.

Layouts with just things like videos or images however shouldn’t require any attention.

Alex,

I presume it’s still ok with Powerpoint 2007 ? This has come out of a local school and they simply don’t have the funds to upgrade their MS Office.

Yes. There’s no change to the PowerPoint support at all.
