[EP-tech] Re: Upgrading from 3.0.5



Hi Jan,

If  I were you, I'd do a test upgrade on a local copy of your 
repository. The update command that comes with eprints (bin/epadmin 
update <id> after installing the new files) should just work (for the 
database, it will apply all changes between versions).

If you have any custom code, you may need to refactor them to use the 
3.3 API.

Last but not least, make sure your cfg directory is up to date with the 
latest pl files (eg. diff lib/defaultcfg/ with archives/<id>/cfg).

Seb.
