Upgrading to LionWiki 2.0

Upgrading to LionWiki 2.0 from all 1.0 versions is quite straightforward. All the pages and history are compatible, no need to convert anything.

Upgrading in one sentence: just copy content of archive to your FTP account and rewrite everything.

Let's divide upgrading to two situations:

Upgrading full-feature LionWiki(Edit)

(This means core LionWiki plus plugins, templates etc.)

  • Backup your config file (usually _config.php)
  • Download, unpack and copy files from archive to your FTP account. Overwrite all files.
  • Edit _config.php and set them as you want - you may use values in your old config file
  • If you want to use Admin plugin, make directory plugins/data/ writable, i.e. set permissions to 777
  • If you want to use Upload plugin, make directory data/ writable, i.e. set permissions to 777
  • That's it

Upgrading core LionWiki(Edit)

(That means you don't have any templates, plugins and language versions installed)

  • Backup your config file, if you use one (if not, backup your values from index.php)
  • Overwrite index.php with 2.0 version index.php
  • Fill config values appropriately
