CPG 1.6 (PHP7) Upgrade/Install Aid
« on: March 31, 2017, 10:34:08 PM »

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.

Hello,

I kind of missed that post and did a normal upgrade by downloading the 1.6.03 github source, then overwriting the 1.5 cpg and starting the update.php. Should I be concerned or look for something not quite right? At first glance the script seems to download the latest github files as well.

You're good either way. The script was just to make it easier for some people.
