I am using Simple_PHP_Blog since years (I started 2008).
Now I am asking myself how to migrate from an earlier version without problems.
I can't find any hint what to consider and how to migrate (just copying all new files over the old ones ????).
Also, I am not sure about the used version - how can I identify my old version (there is no version number shown) ?
And, should I migrate to 0.70 instead to 0.80 (because many things are removed in 0.80) ?
Thx for any hint
Addendum: I've seen I can modify my blog URL in such a way, that it shows the CHANGELOG.TXT, e.g. http://thisismysite.com/blog/docs/CHANGELOG.TXT … unfortunately I have only 0.50 up and running … may be changing to 0.60 should be the easiest thing. But it's still important for me if there is any migration/upgrade hint existing…
Addendum 2: Have seen there is a UPGRADING.TXT in /docs …
Copying the new version to a different site directory first, downloading /config, /content and /images folder and included files, then copying these downloaded items into the new created directory, test it and then rename old blog folder to a different name, rename new folder back to the old name - that's (almost) all ?
Yup, sounds like you've got it!
Just one simple question left … can I overwrite ALL files on my server which are included in that simplephpblog-ZIP or should I avoid to overwrite some specific files (which are included in the original ZIP also) ?
I wouldn't overwrite anything if you can avoid it, just move/rename the old directory and move the new directory into place. The only files you need to worry about with user data in them are /config, /content and /images.
I did this exactly what you've described.
But I lost my preferences (choice of theme, title, etc) and the last comment shown is now a very old one.
I didn't lost the whole content.
I did not overwrite any /config files.
Added later: Anti Spam does not work too - I can't comment anything now.
I guess version 0.60 of simplephpblog is broken.
To be more exact : Anti-Spam Captcha images are not shown now. I was going back to 0.50 and all things worked as before.
Nabber00 - I've sent you in detail information via internal mail function here but you would not like to answer ?
I have no clue why I can't update to 0.60, but it's strange to see even that comment Captcha function doesn't work if I update to 0.60 (no Anti Spam Captcha chars are shown).
0.60 is not supported. There are going to be many known bugs in that version. As I said you should try the latest release. Also there should be some kind of error from PHP that you need to provide.
