The upgrade document is apparently only for upgrading from 1.2.x -> 1.3.x and doesn't seem to relate to small incremental upgrades like 1.3.3 -> 1.3.4. I would like to upgrade but I don't know if I need to run upgrade.php or not. So, I check upgrade.php and it looks like it is all related to the first option (1.2.x->1.3.x) and isn't obvious what will happen upgrading from 1.3.3 -> 1.3.4. I'd like to see the upgrade.php file more documented (both in docs and inline) and maybe less procedural code? At least the upgrade doc should be clarified before the 1.3.5 release.
The UPGRADING doc could be renamed UPGRADING-1.2.md since it's the special case, then have a separate doc for 1.3+ upgrades.
Running upgrade.php is mandatory.
Great that the news articles on 1.3.6 say it isn't......
Running upgrade.php, even if there is nothing to do, it updates the core version in the database which is necessary for future upgraders to know what's what.
that's why I asked you to read the article ;-) You've corrected it I assume?
so the documentation has been removed from the repo. the docs on the community site are ancient. They need to be somewhere. do we want them in a github wiki? the repo? https://github.com/zikula/zikula-docs ?
@drak @paustian @cmfcmf
Could someone with apropriate permission please update the german news article as well (that upgrade.php has to be run)? @rallek @guite
so - @drak - where to put upgrading and install docs?
Can we leave this until nearer release? We dont know what the upgrade process will be entirely yet.
I guess so. I'm just trying to close tickets. (#1384)
ok - I JUST (re)noticed this file: https://github.com/zikula/core/blob/1.3/UPGRADE-1.3.7.md
I guess that goes toward the proper docs that need to be created eventually. It should be separated from site admins and devs though.
anyway, I wanted to change this line in the upgrade.php file: https://github.com/zikula/core/blob/1.3/src/upgrade.php#L131
it has wrong information/links.
