Needed components


It might be best to have a copy of the templates + dictionaries from the version being upgraded for comparison...this would make it easy to decide if a manual update is needed or not. Even better: use an md5sum of the previous translations + templates.

  • Back up the current database
  • Apply any database patches + upgrades Script created
  • Copy in any completely new files
  • Compare any local dictionaries to the default dictionary, pointing out updated translations
    • Offer to merge the dictionaries? This would actually be pretty easy to do. Script Created
  • Compare any local templates to the default templates, highlighting ones that need to be manually upgraded Mostly there

New Install

  • Create Database
  • Seed with sample data
  • Prompt for initial configuration data -- site name, default publishing category, etc
  • Either add new vhost, or prompt for necessary vhost details
