I had a running Foswiki 1.0.5 under Windows XP, installed with the strawberry installer of SvenDowideit. Sven has other projects to build a new installer, so I had to become active myself...


Windows XP, running FOSWIKI 1.0.5, upgradepack


It's easy as 1 - 2 - 3 ... Thanks to SvenDowideit? and his Windows Installer.

  1. Install Foswiki-1.0.5-0-strawberry.exe, keep a running installation according to documentation.
    make backup of the running Foswiki installation. Unpack in a directory.
  2. merge new / changed files from new directories into corresponding directories of the 1.0.5 installation.
  3. adapt path of perl.exe in all .pl files in FOSWIKI/bin
That's it!
[ at least: MY Foswiki is still running with version 1.0.6 ! ]
