How to do a Clean Install of Versioin 8
For safety sake, I made a backup copy of my 5.6.3 database. I aleady moved my text files out of the directory and I have copies of files to upload later.
My question is, what legacy 5.6.3 files need to be removed from my host? I aleady moved my text files out of the directory and I have copies of the files to uplaod later.
Appreciate the help!
You should back up the whole thing then (again unless you install in a separate folder) remove it all and install the new one.
Best would be to install the new one in a separate folder with a subdomain pointing at it and then when you're happy with the result either redirect the main domain to that folder or move the install to the root where the older website is.
I created a new database, I have the Concrete5 file on the unzipped on my domain but can't figure out the Install part. Which installer do you use? Or, do I need to contact my host to do that?
Make sure the files are in the root of the domain and not in a sub folder.
I Installed in Public_HTML folder, see attached PDF however, when I go to my website
www.www.brunettifamily.org/family/... I get page can't be found.
When I install in Public_HTML/family/ I get a clean website but the directory is:
Public_HTML/family/Concrete5-22.214.171.124/ Which I don't think is correct.
I'm sure I'm still missing a step.
