How to install the latest nightly build
« on: June 13, 2008, 10:24:48 am »

i have download the latest nightly build (revision 1411 as of june 12th) as it seem to answer a few bugs i accoutered.

I'am not too sure how to upgrade to this revision. i run VM1.1 on joomla! 1.5.3

I can see that there are the files for the joomla! 1.0.xx, which i know i need to disregard.

But it seems to me that it is an installer, do i have to run the installer or just overwrites the files.

thanks from bringing light

The easiest way to update your VM 1.1 with the latest nightly build is to download a manual installation package from here:

Make shure you pick the correct version! The ones for Joomla 1.5.x carry a ...j15 at the end.

Unpack the file into an empty temporary directory. Then copy and paste the four directories named administrator, components, modules and plugins over your Joomla 1.5 directory. (on a windows system usually something like xampp\htdocs\Joomla15).

If you changed VM files yourself, think about saving your changes first as those files might be overwritten. Personally I keep a table where I note exactly the changes I made to the original code.

Good luck  :D

And just in case... don't forget to install the 13 modules and 2 plugins after installing the main program with the Joomla installer.
