Upgrading using fantastico
« on: January 10, 2011, 08:18:20 pm »

Hi,

I have a gallery here;
http://www.earstretchers.co.uk/index.php

I installed it from CPanel using 'fantastico' delux.
It worked very well, I just clicked one button and it installed without error.

However that was a while ago (v1.4.19)
and I've only just got round to thinking about upgrading.. a bit slack I know.

In 'fantastico' there is an upgrade button...


Coppermine Photo Gallery
Location         Installed Version         Upgrade Link
   /                   1.4.19            Upgrade to 1.5.10

Before I go ahead and clink it, I though I'd better ask on here if its a good idea to upgrade using the fantastico link.
Am I likely to encounter any problems and if so what?

Thanks in advance for any advice.
Best Regards,
Mark

Nope, we do do not support installs made with fantastico for more reasons than I have time to explain. One of those reasons is that their install package is already out of date, we are currently shipping version 1.5.12.

If you upgrade using the method outlines in the docs that makes yours a version we can support.

It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potatoes.
