Upgrade 1.7 to 1.8 - Web Server

Hi all

Need a little help if possible:)

Been a long time since we touch this solution, and we would like to upgrade the solution to 1.8.
One of the instruction points says (•Replace your existing installation with the new version from the tar.gz or zip file. Do not copy over the top) Can anyone please expand on this point?

Many Thanks

Make sure to look at the correct instructions - http://xibo.org.uk/manual/en/upgrade.html

You can also consider switching to docker.

In any case, the ‘Do not copy over the top’ means just that ie move the old files elsewhere, and then extract a fresh copy in their place.

The reason being sometimes we’ll delete files that are no longer required, and if you then leave your old versions in place, the CMS may not work properly because the old files will interfere.

If you’re using custom/manual method of installation, then please have a look here as well http://xibo.org.uk/manual/en/install_environment.html
