    Hi,

    First of all - great job with ProjectForge :)

    I have version 5.2 running without any problems, using a local PostgreSQL database.
    I'd like to upgrade to 5.3, however in Administration -> Update system I have no Update scripts.
    If I click on show all, I can see old ones, i.e. the last one is:

    ProjectForge 5.2 2013-05-13 ALREADY_UPDATED Adds t_fibu_auftrag_position.time_of_performance_{start|end}, t_script.file{_name} and changes type of t_script.script{_backup} to byte[].

    What's the procedure for upgrading to 5.3 manually and any idea why this auto system does not show 5.3?

    Thanks,

    Bojan

    Hi, the procedure is to start ProjectForge 5.3 on your database version 5.2 (please make a database-dump and backup of your working directory before).
    The update scripts are part of the 5.3 web archive (war).
    Then after log-in you should be redirected automatically to the update screen.
    For a manual update of your database schema please refer:

    Regards
    Kai
