How do I install a nightly build?

Post by marioliveira » Sat Dec 01, 2007 10:54 am

This may be the scilliest questuion around but I've been studying Joomla for a  month and did not pay attention to this matter of nightly builds I read about now. Really I searched in this forum but I get confused with the posts about.  I think I understand well wht nighly builds are intended for, but the question is: I have Joomla 1.5 RC3 installed on a local server. How do I install a nightly build (over it)?

You would have to replace all the files. The safest option would be to remove all your files/folders, except for the configuration.php. Then unzip the nightly, and put those files/folders back in your site/localhost.

The reason for removing the old files/folders is because during development some files have become deprecated and can cause problems when you leave them in place.

Note; if you installed extensions, you will need to put them back manually. They will be deleted if you remove all your files of course.

I only found instructions for a clean install. Do you have a direct link?

When you say "replace" the components, do you mean re-install or upload the files via ftp?  Do Ihave to touch the database at all?  Would I need to reinstall the modules?

you do not need to reinstall the modules/plugins... just transfer the files back in to the appropriate directories. you do not need to do anything to the database either.

i would also like to see a direct link to the directions in this

Umm there's nothing in the installation manual that talks about installing the nightly build.  I did a search and it brought up nothing.  I guess we're expected to follow the clean installation instructions?

I hope this doesn't overwrite my site and reset it to the original Joomla site.  :(

More information on this would be greatly appreciated, considering it's supposedly really important.
