Items Needed

Hi folks - finishing up this tutorial, and would appreciate some help with a couple items. Most of these I have done myself, but I am not sure if the method I use is the simplest method, or the best.

  • What to do if there no upgrade option appears in the update manager - need clarification for the information section there
  • Clarification on the last section for updating manually - what process is involved there.
  • Links - there are several places where a download package is referenced, or another tutorial is references. If those links already exist they need added, if tutorials do not exist on docs.joomla.org please post a note here on the discussion page so they can get added!

If you see anything else that needs modified or changed, please do! This discussion page here can be used to work together on this! 219jondn 11:23, 12 July 2011 (CDT)

Recomended Addendum: from L. Arnold 12-31-12 Just spent a concerted effort getting a locked down 1.6.6 install to update to 1.7 and then 2.58.

Was getting stopped in the "Extensions - Update" at every turn with the "cannot copy file" error.

I proceeded to look at my install and found that several of my files within the Joomla structure were no longer "owned" by the www-data group (this name likely varies from system to system). I logged in via SSH and issued the command

chown -R www-data:www-data /full/path/to/my/joomla (use your path name)

Then I was able to log in and sequentially update with the 1.6.5 to 1.7.0 stable upgrade. Per another post, I unzipped the stable upgrade and found there are two zipped folders inside. One is the Joomla_1.6.5_to_1.7.0-pre_Package Two is the Joomla_1.7.0-Stable-Update_Package

I applied these sequentially and got my system (actually 3 different systems) to 1.7.

I was able to directly upgrade to 2.5.8 after that (using both a downloaded patch and the Joomla Update method.

Before I fixed the ownership (the last year in fact) I was unable to update the 1.6.6 system. I believe this was messed up by manually uploading a system via FileBrowser when logged in as Root, rather than through the Joomla Admin backend.

All good now though. Info on this page has been helpful.

Linux script for removing those files

PLEASE! BACKUP before running this script.
