Download the installation package, unpack it on your local computer and upload all files to your webspace. Then run the installation wizard as described on the WB help site: English
Remember to delete the installation folder /install
and the file upgrade-script.php
after the installation. It is not required to run the the upgrade script if you do a clean installation.Upgrading from an existing WB 2.6.7 installation
Detailed information about the upgrade process can be found on the WB 2.7 help site: English
Remember not to overwritte
your existing config.php
file when upgrading from an previous WebsiteBaker version. If you are still running a WebsiteBaker version 2.5.x, you need first to upgrade to WB 2.6.7.
You can download older WB versions from hereUpgrading from WB 2.7 RC1/RC2/RC3/RC3a
In general it is possible to upgrade from an existing WB 2.7 RC by uploading all files except the installation folder /install and the config.php file .7 over your existing installation. Then re-run the upgrade-script.php to do the required database changes.Note:
All database settings regarding admin tools, WB settings etc. will of course be replaced with default values during this process. This is due to the fact that we decided not to write a new upgrade script for upgrading from 2.7 RCs.
All customized files (FCK settings, frontend.css / backend.css stuff) will be overwritten while uploading the new files via FTP, so you have to take care not to overwrite them or to make a backup of those files before.
As we have changed the creation of the pages file names (WB 2.7 RC file names were created from the page-title, now it will be created from menu-title) you may run into an issue with pages using different settings for page-title and menu-title. Best would be to save all pages via the WB backend to convert those back if required.I would like to thank the development team members: thorn, ruebenwurzel, escpro, swen for making WB 2.7 happen.
Have fun with WebsiteBaker 2.7
