download 2.1 and look in the documentation folder where you'll find a basic
guide to upgrading.

Subject: [Xerte] FAQ: upgrade and migrate from XOT 1.x to 2.x


This is almost certainly a FAQ, but I've only just rejoined this list after
two years so please forgive my ignorance. I've been asked to find out if
there's an "upgrade script" from Xerte Toolkits 1.x to 2.x, such that users
and learning objects from the 1.x installation would be moved to 2.x. if
not, what are the steps that need to be carried out manually by the XOT


The context is an institutional installation of XOT 1 which has some 60
users and a load of learning objects, and which the admin wants to upgrade
to 2 toot sweet without losing users and/or LOs which would cause much
wailing and gnashing of teeth. If there were a script that could be run that
would be very handy, otherwise manual instructions would be fine if he could
be pointed to relevant bits of the fine manual. 


I've had a search for "upgrade" on the Xerte Community site
<http://xerte.org.uk/>  but got only 2 results, neither relevant. I've had a
look on the Xerte documentation on the Nottingham site
<https://www.nottingham.ac.uk/xerte/documentation.aspx>  but couldn't see
anything. The Xerte Discussion list
<http://lists.nottingham.ac.uk/mailman/listinfo/xerte>  site has archives,
but no search facility.  I even tried a Famous Search Engine [TM] for "xerte
upgrade" and got a few hits, of which this PDF at Lodz
llation.pdf>  on upgrading was useful, essentially saying that everything
needed to be backed up before upgrading.
