Re: How to upgrade from 1.3.9 to 1.6.0?
I decided to try a different approach, and it seems to be working mostly.
I created a new db and imported the data from my export backup.
I dl'd and uploaded the v1.6.6 into a second testing directory and
installed, using the latest db.
I was pleasantly surprised to see that it seems to have self installed and
modified the db correctly, even from the 1.3.9 structures.
The images wouldn't display of course, so now I'm copying the images
directory from the old working installation to the latest test installation
directory. I don't think it's going to work, I can't display the
"Image:foo.jpg" in the new install, even though the file is transferred.
Do I need to redo the entire process, or revert the LocalSetting.php file
and reinstall, or is there a utility that I can run? Is the image storage
