Upgrade vShare 2.8.1 to vShare 2.9

Backup

Before you start upgrading, take backup of your site including database and files.

If you are using version older than 2.5, you need to upgrade to vShare 2.5 or higher before upgrading

You can see upgrade instructions for older versions of vshare at

http://www.buyscripts.in/vshare-release.html

If you are not familiar with installing scripts, don't do it yourself. Paid vShare upgrade service available from for $5. If you are using too old version, its better get paid upgrade service, so you don't have to do multiple upgrades yourself.

Template Changes

Following template files are changed

If you have custom modifications, do not delete or rewrite existing templates folder. Compare changed files with your existing files and update. You can compare files with WinMerge(http://winmerge.org).

Remove Old Files

You can delete (or move to a temporary folder) all folders and files other than following

    chimg
    flvideo
    photo
    thumb
    video
    include/config.php

I suggest you to move the files and folders to a temporary folder, so you can refer them if needed. Most FTP software allow you to move files and folders.

Uploading vShare 2.9

Download vShare 2.9 from Members Area(http://buyscripts.in/order/client_login.php) or from

http://buyscripts.in/download/vshare_2.9.zip

Extract the zip file. Delete following files and folders (these folders and files already present in your server.)

    chimg
    flvideo
    photo
    thumb
    video
    include/config.php

Upload rest of the file to server. Make sure you don't overwrite file include/config.php in server.

Set permissions

Set permission for folder sitemap to 777

    chmod 777 sitemap

Run upgrade script

After you uploaded new files, you need to run upgrade.php to upgrade database.

After upgrade finished, delete the install folder.
