Introduction

We will be updating LinkX when necessary to fix any bugs and add small features. These releases can be recognized by a change in the third digit of the software version number. For example a change from version 1.0.1 to 1.0.2 is a patch release. When these patches are released you should upgrade your installation with the new version. This document contains instructions for doing just that.

Patching

Patching your installation is very simple. All you need to do is upload the new files from the new version to your server. All of the files that need to be uploaded are listed below. You should not run any upgrade scripts when patching your installation, those are only used when upgrading from a previous major release.
Once those files have been transferred, run the Recompile Templates and Clear Template Cache functions in the control panel. The software has now been updated and you can continue using it as you regularly would.

Important Notes

It is not necessary to delete any files from your server before you upload the updated scripts. If you do delete any files, make sure you reset all permissions on the files you upload. All file permissions are covered in the Installation section of the manual.
