In Topic: Updating help requested please

Thank you so very much! I really appreciate that you took the time to provide these detailed instruction. Good to know that I should be using the built-in capabilities of MySQL itself to backup and restore the databases, rather than just copying the "data" directory!

I had a hard time finding info online about updating Uniform Server. I know that these instructions won't apply to everybody, but hopefully some other users, with similar installations and usage to mine, will find them helpful as well!

Thanks again!

Thanks Ric.


The problem I posted about has gone away. I don't know what caused it originally or what cleared it up; sorry, I'm no help to anyone in the future with a similar problem.


Thanks for your advise to update. I'd like to. I have searched the Wiki and also Googled, but can't find instructions on updating to a newer version. Can you point me at those?


I could simply install the newest version in a different directory; in that case I'd need instructions on how to move the sites in the first installation to the second installation. Is it any more involved than simply copy/pasting the www folder? I imagine that my database, Apache or MySQL configurations are not in the www directory...

Note also:


Although I received the Failed to start MySQL warning and the controller shows that MySQL is not running, when I open a website in my browser, which I am developing locally using UniserverZ, the website opens and operates properly. I can edit and save things which are part of the database. This suggests that MySQL is running, no?
