Upgrading from PHPVibe v5 to the MediaVibe CMS (Vibe6)

The upgrader and ‘How to’ are now available in the zip pack.

Please follow that procedure to upgrade!

The upgrader will be released sometime after Easter.
We’ll have a chance to check the database changes between our build and MediaVibe’s build.

If you are in a hurry to upgrade you can follow this steps:

– Install v6 separatelly
– Copy the old files from v5 to new locations:
/media -> /storage/media/
/cache -> /storage/
/lib/langs/ -> /storage/langs/
/uploads/ -> /storage/uploads/
– Export the old database having only data, NOT structure with your server’s phpmyadmin. Here is a phpmyadmin tutorial.
– Import the old database’s data into the new database. A good practice is to empty the tables on the v6 database before doing the old database import (user_groups, options…).

Clear cache and you should be done.

Hope this helps,
