Upgrading from v0.1

Download the latest release for your operating system. Stop running your writefreely service, replace all files in your installation with the ones in the archive, and then start your writefreely service again.

Important: always keep config.ini and the files in your keys directory across all upgrades -- don't delete or replace these manually.

Database migrations are manual for now! Fun! To upgrade, connect to your database and run:

ALTER TABLE `remoteusers` DROP `followers`;
