Standard upgrade procedure?


Recommended Posts

Is there a standard way to upgrade an installation of uniserver?


I am specifically interested in updating from 4.3 to 5.3. I don't have very clear documentation on what was changed from default during the previous version installation, but i want to minimize any impacts. I am on xp corp sp3 and am interested in upgrading just to keep patches up to date.

Check out the Wiki for change details, 4.3 to 5.3 there was a significant architecture change this impacts on third party programs.


Although Uniform Server 5.3-Nano is stable most third party programs still have issues with PHP 5.3.0 Note PHP have released 5.3.1RC1 (03 Sep 2009) hence not to faraway for another release of Uniform Server.


I was just wondering what third party programs you are running?


Anyway to answer your question:


1] Extract new version of Uniform Server to any folder (Path to folder UniServer must not contain spaces in any folder names)

2] Copy all content of old server folder www to new server’s folder www

3] Adjust any third party program configuration files to match new path or modify to be portable (check Wiki for details).

4] From old server export all databases using phpMyAdmin

5] Import all the above databases to new server.


That’s about as standard as it gets.
