Hi Fay,
Yes I downloaded and unzipped the version here:
http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/xerte/community.htm.  Unzipped it and replaced
the site folder with the files, after removing the setup folder.  I thought
maybe the copy on that web page could be the problem but I'll go through the
process again just in case now.
Thanks a lot for your help.

Hi Remy

I've just spoken to a colleague of yours at ALT-C who said you have had some
problems upgrading (sorry I can't recall her name - Rose?). She showed me
your installation where she thought you had installed 1.8 but it was
definitely missing things and still looked like 1.7 to me. What are the
problems you are having? She seemed to be saying that you had installed it
but nothing seems to have changed, or are the problems before you complete
the installation?

Someone on the list (probably not me!) should be able to give some advice if
you let us know what's failing.

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 table
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

Could anyone point me to a set of instructions for the above please?  I am
experiencing some problems upgrading on a Linux web server so will appreciate
any help.
