Before installing Feng Office make sure that your server matches these requirements:
Installation error: in order to run Feng Office you need PHP5. Your current PHP version is: 4.x.x.Some hosting providers allow you to switch PHP versions; if your provider doesn't you need another server.
Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes exhausted.This can be solved by setting
For a fresh installation, follow these steps:
Upgrading an existing Feng Office installation can be done either by automatic upgrade or by manual upgrade. The usual and much simpler way is the automatic upgrade. If you experience problems with the automatic upgrade (i.e. because your webserver doesn't have write access to all folders) you can still do a manual upgrade (which is more or less the same procedure as in any PHP application).
To perform an automatic upgrade simply go to the administration panel and choose “Upgrade”. If there is currently an upgrade available you will see a screen as the one above. The release notes give you a brief overview of the new features (you'll find additional information in the Feng Office blog).
When an automatic upgrade has finished you will see a confirmation similar to the following one:
PLEASE NOTE: If you are experiencing problems during the automatic upgrade (i.e. if you get a database error message), you can still perform a manual upgrade to solve the problem.
PLEASE NOTE: For details about upgrading see the
readme.txt file in the root directory of every Feng Office distribution.
Upgrading Feng Office is easy as long as you follow these rules:
config(Feng Office configuration is stored here)
upload(Feng Office documents are stored here if you are using filesystem storage)
public/files(avatars and logos are stored here)
When you accidentally overwrite the file
config/config.php during an upgrade your Feng Office installation will become unavailable: You will get the message that Feng Office is not installed, but when you try to re-enter your database parameters in the installer it will tell you that the tables could no be created because they exist already.
To solve this problem you have to enter your database parameters manually into the file
config/config.php. To do so, copy the content of the file
config/config.php and enter the correct values for the constants defined there.
Let's say you have installed your Feng Office in the following directory:
Now you decide to move this installation to:
Simply moving all files with your FTP client is the first step, but that's not enough - you have to go through these two steps as well:
cache/autoloader.php.(It will be recreated automatically with the new path.)
