Upgrade instructions for shared hosting environments

Problem

If you unpack the .tgz file on your shared hosting environment, it is unpacked in a Foswiki-upgrade-2.1.x folder by default.

If you then try to move the files and folders to the location where your foswiki is installed on your shared hosting environment, this is impossible: files are copied, but directory's aren't. You get an error:
  • e.g. in DirectAdmin file management: "cannot copy directory … into an existing directory"
  • e.g. in WinSCP: Error moving file '<dir>' to '/path/where/your/foswiki/is/installed/<dir>' - Rename /path/where your/foswiki/is/installed/<dir>: Directory not empty

Solution

  • download the Foswiki-upgrade-2.1.x.tgz file
  • open the .tgz archive
  • open the .tar archive
  • rename the Foswiki-upgrade-2.1.x folder to the folder name of your wiki installation on your shared hosting environment (e.g. wiki if your foswiki is installed in /domains/mydomain.ext/public_html/wiki/)
  • close the archive and confirm the prompt to save the modified archive
  • copy the modified .tgz file to your shared hosting environment in the folder above your wiki folder (for example, in /domains/mydomain.ext/public_html/ if your wiki is installed in /domains/mydomain.ext/public_html/wiki/)
  • unpack the .tgz file: all files are correctly overwritten
  • finally, refresh any cached files by surfing to your.www.iki/?refresh=all
