We are currently running 2.1.6 and want to upgrade to 2.1.8.

Do I need to do a 2 step upgrade? First to 2.1.7, then to 2.1.8? Or can I do it in 1 step?

Also do I need to use different DB upgrade scripts for postgres?

Thank you,

John 4

Also, I love the new indexing feature in 2.1.8. AWESOME-O!

In the distro, there is an upgrade directory with a bunch of subdirectories with version names.

To upgrade from 2.1.6 to 2.1.8, you will need to run the 2.1.7/postgresql_2.1.6_to_2.17.sql script first.

Then run the 2.1.8/postgresql_2.1.7_to_2.1.8.sql script.

I would suggest having a complete backup of everything, a fall back plan, and a good plan on testing your install after doing the upgrade. E.g., check attachments are still there, avatars, poll info, pm's, and the like.
