I will upgrade my site from a old version: v1.2.1-DEV to the latest (now: v188.8.131.52).
Did someone already did it? Have I to expect surprises?
I think the germa site is a little old, I found this two pages:
- "Update von RC 1.1 bis 1.2.9 auf 1.3.x" http://www.phpwcms-docu.de/upgrade_RC11 ... _13x.phtml
- http://www.phpwcms-docu.de/installation ... wcms.phtml
OR is better (I mean faster) a parallel installation?

Actually I had to do some changes.
Here what I have done, maybe it helps someone:
First at all: backup of files and DBs.
Than I uploaded the 184.108.40.206 to overwrite everything.
I made all the CHMOD and go to the /setup/.
I Includes into conf.inc.php
I started the update process and .... run all the SQL scipts, directly on the DB (sorry but after I run the first in the GUI, I come to a page without navigation and it seems that nothing was be done)
After this a have had to make some corrections:
From http://www.phpwcms-howto.de/wiki/doku.p ... ion/update in point
07. Reorganize old content of preversioned subdirs
--> and reorganize it also in conf.inc.php !!
$phpwcms["file_path"] = "filearchive"; //default: "filearchive"
$phpwcms["templates"] = "template"; //default: "template"
$phpwcms["ftp_path"] = "upload"; //default: "upload"
2. Delete in order /content/tmp/ of all files rXXX.checked.tmp
Delete of "deny from all" in .htaccess in order filearchive
$phpwcms['gd_memcheck_off'] = 1; // disable GD php memory check before resize an image
(here I also merged all new lines of new conf.inc.php with my old conf.inc.php)
I have still some problems to understand how the cache works!!
