Upgrade

Hello Everyone.
Now i noticed there is a new version of the Gibbon.
But i have trouble how to back up my database, is there on how to do it?
What are the steps because i can't see backup button on the gibbon page.
Cheers

  • Hi dgago, one option is to use @sandra's Data Admin module (from our Extend page) to create a snapshot. I believe Sandra recommends this for non-production systems.

    I use the mysqld Linux CLI command, combined with cron for scheduling, to backup our database nightly. When I need to take an immediately backup, I use an SQL client (e.g. phpmyadmin on the web, Sequel Pro on Mac, DBeaver across a variety of OSes, etc) to download the entire database in compressed SQL format.

    Hope this helps!

  • Thanks for the reply.
    I'm not that expert. But my issue phpadmin i did export into sql is that what you call backup?
    Also when i upload the files via ftp where do i upload to... do i replace existing files or is there a specific folder i must transfer the files to.
    I'm sorry if is too much to ask.
  • also where is the database i mean which folder is it?
  • Hi,

    I see the new v18 released, I try to upgrade my current test setup which is v17, I follow the guide said to backup db and I also make a copy of gibbon to my local store. I unzip and rename the folder to my current gibbon folder name. I overwrite all except the modules and themes but. when finish I try to access the url as usual I got below error, don't know what is it. Kindly advise is it I need to exclude some files to overwrite beside modules & themes?

  • Hi,

    Eventually, I forgot to do final step which I need go to system admin to update the database manually, after I click the submit then logout and login again, everything back to normal.

  • Hi @sonnysiah glad to hear you got it sorted. Running the database updates is a vital step! Cheers, Ross.
