3.21 rev 1 wants to install rather than update

Postby gjerdery » Thu May 03, 2012 4:47 pm

After removing all but the config.inc.php file on the server, as I've done with past updates, and loading the 3.21-rev1 files, I only get the install page. I've tried to force it via the url to go to the upgrade page, but I'm not having any luck.

To others who encounter this issue, I discovered that the answer is that you do not need to go through the standard upgrade procedure when going to a "rev" edition of the same numbered release (ie. 3.21 to 3.21-rev1; moving from any other version - 3.20, for example - to rev1 DOES require the update process). Just copy the new files to the server, being sure to delete the packages/core/install/install.php file. The site will just work. I had a recollection that there was something special the last time a rev version was released, but couldn't remember what it was. I had to find the posting for 3.13-r1 to be sure. I wish that a similar notice had been placed in the 3.21-r1 announcement. I couldn't find anywhere else that documented the different installation process.
