This page is an instruction for a patch update (for example, version 4.1.x to a higher version 4.1.x+).

Back-up[edit | edit source]

Firstly, you need to make a back-up of your database

mysqldump -u root -p --all-databases > all_databases.sql

To make your code base more secure, save it to a secure location of your choice

#Linux bash
cp -r codebase your_secure_place
# Win bash
xcopy codebase your_secure_place\ /E

Renew the code base[edit | edit source]

Unzip archive (new Wiki version). Overwrite the old wiki code base with the new wiki version code.

#Linux bash
cp -r new_version_codebase old_version_codebase
rm -rf new_version_codebase
#Win bash
xcopy new_version_codebase old_version_codebase\ /E/H #path/ -  to tell xcopy that path is a directory.
rmdir new_version_codebase /Q/S

Local settings and Data[edit | edit source]

Compare Local files and some manual made settings[edit | edit source]

The following files and folders contain local changes:

  • skins/ folder
  • settings files
  • extension/BlueSpiceFoundation/config/ folder
  • images/ folder
  • all LocalSettings.php files
    File settingsPHP.png
Copy from your backup Local files and some manual made settings[edit | edit source]

For a fast copy, use this bash command:

#Linux Bash
cd your_secure_place
cp -r images/ LocalSettings.* settings.d/ codebase/
cp -r /extensions/BlueSpiceFoundation/config /codebase/extensions/BlueSpiceFoundation/
#Win Bash
cd your_secure_place
for %I in (images/ LocalSettings.* settings.d/) do copy %I codebase/
for %I in (config/ data/) do copy %I codebase/extensions/BlueSpiceFoundation/

Run the update[edit | edit source]

After all preparations are done and code base is overwritten, do the following steps:

  1. open a console and go to the installation folder (LocalSettings.php directory-level, see: right-image)
  2. enter the following command:
    php maintenance/update.php

Note: If you use Linux for your BlueSpice installation, please note that the file system permissions may be lost when overwriting the code base!

Check your current Version[edit | edit source]

rechts Open the page Special:Verion in your Wiki and check 'BlueSpice(Credits)' see: right-image
