I was planning to write up some instructions and.or screencast but haven't
found time yet. Here's a quick summary:


1. backup existing database and directory just in case

2. drop 1.8 code over top of existing code (for an upgrade you don't need
the setup folder)

3. visit the install to test the basics are working ok via guest access e.g.
create and test an LO

4. If you are using LDAP for authentication visit
http://yourinstall/upgrade.php to copy details from sitedeatils to ldap

5. change from guest to ldap or one of the other authentication options in
config.php by commenting/un-commenting the relevant line

6. If you are using Moodle for authentication read and follow the
instructions in the moodle_integration_readme file

7. refresh index.php and test login and creation etc
