#421 open

Feature request - install/upgrade must be specifically envoked and upgrade requires admin login

Reported by dleffler | December 9th, 2011 @ 09:38 PM | in 2.0.4 (closed)

As a result of several discussions concerning ticket #417, the following is proposed for implementation:

  • installer MUST be envoked by going to a specific url (install/index.php) just like we do now with logins.
  • if there is no config or database connection, the site will appear to be down/in maintenance mode, but this is transitory and checked each page load (do NOT create the not_configured file)
  • IF an upgrade condition exists, the admin user will will be notified (via flash message) that they should upgrade the site after logging in (page load) and given a link to launch the upgrade.

Drawbacks to this appraoch will be the 1) install/upgrade will no longer be semi-automated and 2) in some cases the site/page may crash if it is in an upgrade condition (system & database versions don't match) due to missing (new) database table fields
