CI version upgrade - El Forum - 07-19-2008

Hello all,

1. I could upgrade my CI version 1.5 to the newest one? If yes, what I should do? Copying all new folders less the config, controllers, models and views should work?

2. If I cant make upgrade, where I can see the CI version I have used?

I'm passing a site for a new programmer, and I have to give this support for him... I think he even know codeigniter, and must have a basic knowledge of PHP.

Ok, hope u can help me with those questions...

You can check your CI version in your /system/codeigniter/CodeIgniter.php file
Then, go to and check out the upgrade instructions for every version between yours and the one you want to update

Well, my app is version 1.5.4, and now my doubt is about to upgrade it to the latest one without upgrading one by one... 1.5.4 to 1.6.0 to 1.6.1 to others...

If is better dont upgrade, I would like to have the 1.5.4 user guide to send to the other programmer...
I searched for an archive in CI site but I coukdnt find it...

Anyone could help?

Have you looked here? It clearly says version 1.5.4

However, you don't have to upgrade all your files one by one, I think you're safe just updating to 1.6.3 in one upgrade.

Maybe you should download your site first though and put it on a localhost, then upgrade and see if anything breaks.

Yeah, you'll definitely want to update to the latest version, as security enhancements have been made.
