Hello PKP fellows,
This is my first query here. I want to affect an update as mentioned in the query heading. It needs to happen on shared hosting.
I have already gone through following resources:
On this resource, I want to know what @pocketfullofcheese has mentioned as the easiest way to upgrade. My question here is, will we be replacing the files of old installation with the files of new installation (from the new folder containing new installation files to old installation directory)? Does it mean that we only need to keep config.inc.php, public/, and files_dir from the old installation and will eventually replace rest of the old installation folders with the new installation folders (old ‘lib’ with new ‘lib’, old ‘plugins’ with new ‘plugins’ and so on…)
Another resource, I referred is https://github.com/pkp/ojs/blob/master/docs/UPGRADE.md
This resource is also creating same question in my mind.
P.S. I have only web interface access via cPanel.
Apologies in advance, if this question seems too basic to you. And, thanks in advance for your suggestion which can help me make my day with the upgrade.
