Upgrading from Mona 4.0 to 4.1


Recommended Posts



First, I'd like to say that I've been using the Mona 4.0 release of the Uniform Server for several months and it has run flawlessly and I am very happy with it :unsure:.


Secondly, today I just noticed that a new version of the server has been released (Mona 4.1). I was just wondering if someone here could tell me (step-by-step) how to upgrade to the latest version without losing everything. I currently have 6 sites, 10 MySQL databases, a slightly customized http.conf file and extra modules/libraries/extensions.


EDIT: Actually, even just some basic upgrade instructions would be very helpful and appreciated (ie; I can take care of the other things).


Thanks so much!, Jay

Perform a dry run on a clean install of 4.1 the following steps should work:


1] Apache did not change hence you can copy over your http.config to 4.1

2] Copy over all your site folders

3] MySQL was a significant upgrade – could be a problem area!

3a] Set the MySQL password as per 4.0 (skip if you did not change it)

3b] On 4.1 set-up users and passwords as per your 4.0 (note these have nothing to do with the application names and passwords) (skip if you are the only admin for this server)

4] MySQL databases, you have two options:

4a] I don’t think table formats changed hence a quick method is to copy over all the databases you created.

(Do not copy over these two folders (databases):




Copy over only the folders (databases) you created.


Run the servers to see if there are any problems.


4b] Should that fail delete these databases you copied over to 4.1. Now export each database from 4.0 and import them to 4.1 using phpMyAdmin.


All the best
