charliek Posted July 6, 2013 Report Share Posted July 6, 2013 I notice that Coral 8.8.8 has been released, and I thought I'd take advantage to upgrade my old 8.0.0 setup. I remember that back when I installed 8.0.0 over an old 7.x.x setup, there were many questions in the forum about how to run a simple upgrade and, back then, there were some suggestions about renaming directories, reinstalling, and copying across various configuration files (but no definitive list of which files to keep). It seems that it's much the same story, still, which is a pity because, with a simple and intelligent upgrade procedure it seems to me that Uniform server would be easily the best WAMP setup around. The reason that I prefer to use a pre-rolled WAMP setup, rather than to install Apache, MySQL and PHP seperately, is precisely because I don't know enough about the interactivity between the three tools to be confident of maintaining my own home-grown and secure setup. It would therefore be excellent if Uniform Server could detect existing installations of itself, and update the various binaries while keeping the config settings. As it is, I essentially end up re-configuring Apache, my virtual servers, MySQL and PHP each time... At the very least, a clear and concise 'How To Upgrade' wiki page would be really cool.
