    2. Upload files from updates/ directory to your updates/ directory.
    There are two files in that directory:

    3. Go to admin panel -> Manage Database -> Import. Import pre_upgrade_2.3.02_2.3.03 file.
    4. Upload all the files from patch to your working copy
    5. Run post_upgrade_2.3.02_2.3.03 update script using Admin Panel -> Manage Database -> Import functionality.

    That's all :) Your patch should be successfully applied. Anyway, you are always welcome to ask in case you have any questions.

    Upgrade from 2.3.02 to 2.3.03


    Can someone please explain how can you upgrade from version 2.3.02 to 2.3.03.
    Do I have to reinstall ? or there is a more commode way ?

    2. The Template Fireandice from version 2.3.02 is compatible with v2.3.03 ?

    I sow the area where Simon explain how to apply the upgrade, but there are a lot of things that I don't get it: like

    1. Download patch and unpack it.
    The patch is the whole script? I mean the one that I get it when I download version 2.3.03 ?

    4. Upload all the files from patch to your working copy
    What do you mean by "to your working copy" ?! To upload all the script for 2.3.03 over the one installed ?

    The most important thing is : Are the templates affected by this upgrade ?
    I mean if i modified a template (some css and tpl files) it will still work ok both the site and the template ?

    There are two versions available. If you download CORE version it already includes 2.3.03 patch. There is also Patch in Downloads -> Misc section. It includes changed files only since 2.3.02 release. So I suppose you need to use that patch.


    There are two files affected by this patch. header and footer.tpl. Eugene will post a list of changes for the 2.3.03 version.

    If you start building directory, and suggested I install the new fresh version v2.3.03 without updating

    Probably an oversight on my part, but where do you download the patch? Or do I just re-download the whole product?

    My directory is just about done, so I need just the update so I don't have to rebuild... where do I find that?

    Must be missing something

    Ok at the risk of sounding very stupid - if I download the upgrade where do I find it to unpack it and how do I unpack it?

    Please humour me and give me some detailed guidance

    Before upgrading backup your db and files -

    goto the downloads section (top menu) select misc you will find upgrade packs.

    Download appropriate zip file or all depending on version upgrade requirements.

    2.3.0 to 2.3.1 to 2.3.2 to 2.3.3 upgraded in order

    unpack zip - upload folder 1 level deep is the root folder - upload ftp files to appropriate folders etc.. be careful when uploading files you have previous modifications in

    when all files are uploaded you will need to apply sql patch in your esy admin area database patch from updates folder dropdown - click go. Had problem upgrading 2.3.2 to 2.3.3 where couldn`t accesss the esyn admin panel after uploading files/ patch, so opened up the pre and post sql patches (updates folder) and changed prefix_blocks, config etc to v2300_blocks, v2300_config etc or your db prefix saved (thanks to Bobby) ,restored db and uploaded pre and post sql patches via phpmyadmin sql import...

    oh you may need an updated version of your template also if not using cleancss

    I followed directions on how to back up DB... however I guess I need also back up files... where do I go to do that... filezilla, myphp, in admin?? I need directions for that.

    Also as quoted above I may have problems updating since my site is build I guess?? Show should I not update? I don't want anymore problems, I'll never get my site launched.

    Also Also, if I may ask here since I'm asking, last week I added WP plugin, for some reason deleted it and now I went to re download it and it doesn't work. I noticed all the plugins for 2.3 stable say core version next to them, what does that mean?? Are they not compatible with stable version? Am I not adding them right? I'm trying to get a blog of my own to show on a page in my directory.

    How to make backups!

    1. Backup consists of two parts - MySQL DB backup and files backup.

    How to make MySQL DB backup.
    Go to your phpMyAdmin -> Export. You will be able to download MySQL backup.
    If you have cPanel - there is an easier way to do that directly in control panel.

    How to backup files
    Use FTP to download all your files related to esyndicat. Keep them in separate folder on your PC. You can use FileZilla software for this

    It's more a patch, that has fixes for some bugs and few improvements. If you didn't modify your php files - I would recommend to upgrade your version and apply this patch. If you have some changes - you will need to reapply them on your new version files.

    Are you sure you configured it properly? You need to put DB details in the configuration when you install that plugin or you will have errors on your pages. Click on Installed Plugins tab and find that WP tools plugin and click Configure. Insert your correct WP DB details there.

    Closing this thread. If you have any questions regarding the upgrade process please ask in the appropriate forums.
