Hi,

I'm about to install XOT 3.0 onto Xampp. When I went to look at the installation documentation in /documentation, I noticed that the guide to upgrading relates to upgrading 1.9 to 2.0. Is this still relevant when upgrading from 2.1 to 3.0?

Also, the toolkits installation guide was last updated in 2013, is this still the current edition?

Many thanks in advance

Helen

I'd like to second this request - some updated documentation would be fantastic to accompany installation and upgrading to 3.0.

Hi
The guide to upgrading in the documentation folder is still valid. However I will update that with a couple of small notes at some point.

The installation guide is mostly still valid too (although inevitably older screenshots) and over the years more and more guidance has been added to the installer itself and the setup scripts and the guidance it contains run automatically as soon as you visit the location of the intended installation.

However I've always thought that we need to separate out the guidance on installing locally on xampp and production installation. We have a developer meeting soon and if agreed we will look to update the installation guides at the same time. Meanwhile the Jisc Techdis Xerte Friday session about installation and management might be useful for those new to installing Xerte www.youtube.com/watch?v=P1FkRgjfb0M&list...iDv-VLcu4nCq&index=2

I concur on your thoughts about separating out the local and production documentation - this would be great.

Maybe you can create a seperate topic for your specific problem. Then the discussion about documentation can stay clean.
In a specific topic for your problem, we can help you better.
