upgrade question

Postby kris » Fri Oct 07, 2005 11:13 am

I apologize for my newbie-type question here..but...how do you do this?

Alternatively, OJS 2.0.1 and later provide a command-line tool to automatically
download and apply the appropriate patch to upgrade to the latest release. To
use this tool run the following command from your OJS directory:

$ php tools/upgrade.php patch

I have ojs 2.0.1 and want to upgrade to the newest version. How do I run this? Do I go to http://www.mywebsite.com/$ php tools/upgrade.php patch

Hi Kris,

The upgrade tool needs to be run from a secure shell or telnet session; you can't use this upgrade method over the web. If you don't have secure shell or telnet access, you'll need to follow another of the upgrade methods.
