CMSimple 3.2: how to update?

Postby mcanonic » Fri 6. Apr 2018, 16:41

Hi all,
I'have I quite old website, but it's still working. Now, in the cmsimple webpage there are instructions to update from cmsimple 4.x to the new one. I am wondering how can I update my cmsimple 3.2 website. In case you are curios, it is this one:
http://dcs.di.unipmn.it/mex/?Homepage

Even in the forum, I did not get much information.

Thanks in advance,
Massimo

HI,
probably I'm a little confuse with the procedure.

I've create a new folder, then I have unzip CMsimple 4.3 and see if I can see it --> OK

Then, I did this:
"If everything works fine, you can copy the new installation to the place, where the old website was, or lead the domain to the new directory on the server side."

I have assumed that I'm not using CMSimple_XH.

Now, how can I import the old content?

The instructions here:
https://www.cmsimple.org/doku/en/?Updat ... ile_format

are considering conversion from CMsimple 4.3, but my content are from CMsimple 3.2.

Do I miss a document to convert (very old) content to a new one?

Thanks,
Massimo

Why you want to use such an old version of CMSimple?


That's not true. Where you have read that :?:

I don't know ...

As I wrote, here (+ subpages) all is written:

https://www.cmsimple.org/doku/en/?Update_from_old_versions

Especially read the first paragraph ("up to" is the same as "lower than"), and ignore all hints with "_XH",

My bad, I did not read the doc carefully. Sorry about that. Maybe, I found a bug in the doc.
In this page:
https://www.cmsimple.org/doku/en/?Insta ... ermissions

You wrote to set 666 to ./cmsimple/log.txt
but I did not find this file. Did you mean log.php?

Best,
Massimo

Hi Massimo,

you are right - log.php is the new logfile. You can rename your old log.txt => log.php or start with the new, empty log.php.

Thank you for reporting,
