Upgrade Time

matthew's picture

So it's time, once again, to upgrade barnson.org to a new version of Drupal. I'll be taking things down for a few hours.

Not like I have more than a half-dozen regular readers anyway. So for you six guys out there, sorry we're going to be down for a bit!

Drupal

What's the latest version these days?

Site maintenance

So, you decided to do site maintenance at the same time as Facebook. But I can still reach Barnson.org, and it isn't acting weird. Hmmmm?

6.12

Drupal 6.12 is the latest. And uprades are easier than ever; I did the barnson.org one in, all told, around twenty minutes (from 4.17, to 5.18, to 6.12).

There were a few hitches, but I'd just done one for my airplane club site at http://uterc.org/, so that made it easier since I had some experience. Their setup is a little more complex, though, with forums that become front-page news, and a certain forum that is private for club members only.

Check the dates; I'd been done for nearly a day by the time you posted, Chris :)

Don't come round much

I can say since i have been using the Google reader, i don't actually go out to sites much - I just wait for new posts to hit the reader...

Sweet, gotta try it!

Sweet, I gotta try Google Reader. I'm also looking at reinvesting in some state-of-the-art blogging tools... Notepad and copy/past just ain't cutting it anymore.
