Updating Nova 2

Nova 2 Getting Started Update Guide

Backup

Before you attempt to update Nova 2, please make sure you backup both your files and database. While we don't anticipate any problems, if something does happen, you'll have a solid backup of your system to fall back to.

Remove

Once you've finished backing up all of your stuff, delete the nova directory in its entirety.

When we say delete, we mean it. Delete the directory and then upload the new copy.

Upload

With the nova directory deleted, upload the new nova directory from the zip archive you downloaded from the Anodyne site to your site.

Update

The update process works just like the update process in Nova 1. The first step will try to do an automatic backup for you, but you don't have to worry about that too much since you manually backed up everything before you started. (You did back up everything before you started, right?)

Let the update process do its thing and when you're done, you'll be back on the front Nova page and ready to use Nova again.
