zenphoto upgrades

I was initially having some issues doing an upgrade. It was, as it always seems to be, because I did not RTFM.

  • Backup your MySQL database.
  • Backup customised themes or plugins or any other files
  • Delete the following files and folders:
    • The zp-core folder
    • The themes that were distributed with Zenphoto
    • The files in the home dir (index.php, rss.php, sitemap.php etc.) that came with the distribution
  • Download the latest version and upload it to your server. Do not replace your albums or cache folder!
  • Make sure the .htaccess file is writeable. (If you do not have a .htaccess file, you will be given the opportunity to create one during setup.)
  • Move robots.txt
  • Visit www.example.org/zenphoto/ to start the automated setup wizard.
  • If it does not automatically start, visit www.example.org/zenphoto/zp-core/setup.php
  • Make sure everything checks out, and click go!
  • Follow the instructions.
  • You’re done! Enjoy.
