Upgrading from 1.5.9 to 1.5.10

11 years 5 months ago #84 by
Hi

I'm having problems upgrading from 1.5.9 to 1.5.10.

I'm using Linux cPanel on a shared server.

I uploaded the 1.5.9 to 1.5.10 stable patch via File Manager to the public html directory and directed it to extract, as I've done before for earlier patches. Then I got an error message relating to a language .ini file in the admin folder. It assumed that this file shouldn't be replaced. (I'm attaching a .jpg of the error message.) And the extraction stopped.

Any ideas as to what I can do? It's happening with 3 sites I look after, so it's a bit frustrating.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Hi Geoff

That doesn't look like an error to me. Clicking "yes" should allow you to continue with the process smoothly.

My personal preference for an upgrade is to extract the files to my desktop and then upload via FTP. That gives you more control if you've edited any of the files (languages files in particular are commonly edited).

Thanks Steve, that sounds like an excellent idea.

I use FTP as a matter of course with standard file transfers to my web space, but I'm not sure how to upgrade Joomla using FTP. I'll have to research that.

Catch you later.

Hi Geoff

Fairly simple:

1) Download the patch
2) Extract the files to your desktop
3) Open the FTP connection to your site
4) Upload the files to the root of the site. They should automatically overwrite the old files.
