In Part 1, we covered how to set up your local testing environment with the latest database version from your mojoPortal live site, and how to download and apply the update locally for testing. We’ll pick up from there with the areas that usually require the most attention after running an update, ensuring that your updates are solid, and applying the update to your live site.
The first, and usually the most glaringly obvious issue with upgrades, is the fact that the supporting infrastructure for the UI (“skins”) has a tendency to change frequently, in response to changes from ongoing technology and supporting software, such as Artisteer. Depending on how long it’s been since your last upgrade, the changes may be small, or cause your site to look horribly awry. Have no fear; Joe and his team have been keeping a running update on what changes to apply for each version at “Important Skin Changes” – be sure to go through each step to confirm that you’ve applied all the changes to your mojoPortal skins.
