Tiki 1.8.1 is available since 2004-03-13.

Damian Parker was the coordinator of this release.

Some links for more information about this release

Upgrading from 1.8.0

  1. Change directory to your Tikiwiki parent directory (for instance, if your Tiki is installed at /home/user/public_html/tikiwiki-1.8 then your parent directory would be /home/user/public_html)
  2. Download the 1.8.1 release from the link above
  3. Copy your old Tiki directory to "tikiwiki-1.8.1" (you can "move" it instead to save disk space, but doing a "copy" instead gives you a backup) - cp -r tikiwiki-1.8 tikiwiki-1.8.1
  4. Move the old Tiki directory out of the way - mv tikiwiki-1.8 tikiwiki-1.8_backup
  5. Unpack the new archive (pick one of the following depending on which file you downloaded):
    • bzip2 -dc tikiwiki-1.8.1.tar.bz2 | tar xf - (for the .tar.bz2 file)
    • gzip -dc tikiwiki-1.8.1.tar.gz | tar xf - (for the .tar.gz file)
    • unzip tikiwiki-1.8.1.zip (for the .zip file)
  6. Clear the Smarty compiled templates so that the updates all work properly - rm -rf tikiwiki-1.8.1/templates_c/*
  7. (Optional but recommended) Move your new Tiki directory back to where the old one was, so your links don't break - mv tikiwiki-1.8.1 tikiwiki-1.8
  8. There are no other updates or SQL scripts to run, so you're done
  9. Note: Tiki customizations (style sheets, etc) will have to be migrated manually
