Re: Feedback to: Textpattern 4.5.0 released

small quibble.

The current Update doc. says:

Copy the contents of the textpattern folder to the server's textpattern folder. You may optionally exclude the setup directory, since it is only used for first-time installations.

There should be mention that one needs to retain the config.php file otherwise the update doesn’t work.

My workflow:

I rename textpattern dir to texpatternOLD
rename the three files to .htaccessOLD css.phpOLD and index.phpOLD
Upload the three files and the new textpattern dir

BUT one must retain the config.php file (in my case after encountering errors i simply copied the config.php file from OLD to the new text pattern dir.

Also if one overwrites the existing textpattern dir with the new one, will we not lose the config.php file?

@bici

Update doc on the textpattern.com website itself, not in the download, yes?

Re: Feedback to: Textpattern 4.5.0 released

indeed there is another OUTDATED doc:

http://textpattern.net/wiki/index.php?title=Upgrading_to_a_New_Version#Step_4:_Update

Why not delete it? Or redirect users… otherwise its confusing, no?

Umm, that’s the same document you linked to in the previous post so I shan’t delete it. I can certainly edit it to make things clearer, but as it’s a wiki you could always edit it yourself. Do you have an account?

Re: Feedback to: Textpattern 4.5.0 released

I’ve managed several installs on different servers without troubles … :)

But on this one I get a pop-up >

… !?

[edit]

A second, new and fresh install gives (still) 3 warning messages:

Warning: realpath() [function.realpath]: SAFE MODE Restriction in effect. The script whose uid is 10086 is not allowed to access /tmp/txp_2DvK4s owned by uid 48 in /var/www/vhosts/claraelders.nl/httpdocs/txpnew/textpattern/lib/txplib_misc.php on line 1670

… !?

Anybody?

[edit]

It has to do with chmode … I changed permission on files, textpattern and tmp (777) and now I only get the above pop-up … I’m stuck … :(

[edit]

It looks like the path to /tmp isn’t set correctly in Txp. Because of this I can’t get into Txp itself. Is there another way to edit some .php file so Txp can find its /tmp folder?

Cool, thanks. I had a go earlier. Feel free to improve it.

@Rigel

Just to rule it out, what version of PHP are you using (minimum requirement now is 5.2)?
