For currently running CPG 1.5.32+ installations, an assistive script to use for upgrading to the pre-release version of CPG 1.6 was made available here
Attached to this post is a script that can be used to upgrade a CPG 1.5.32+ installation that has suddenly stopped working because of PHP changes (for example) at your site. Place the script file (as cpg_installer_stub.php
) in the root of your CPG installation. Access the script as <your_coppermine_url>/cpg_installer_stub.php. Choose to upgrade your current installation.Be very aware: you could be using a plugin or theme that is not compatible with CPG 1.6
This same script can also be used to create a new installation of CPG 1.6. Make sure you have a database user and password already configured on your server. Load the script to an appropriate place on your server (where you want the installation to be). Access the script from a web browser and perform the installation.Once installation is complete, it is advisable to remove this script.
