This question about Installation of Foswiki: Answered

Not sure upgrade to 1.1.4 took place

Just tried my first upgrade, to 1.1.4. This is on a Linux box. For my first try, I unpacked the upgrade "tgz" file to a new directory and then tried a recursive copy to replace the existing files with the upgraded ones. This failed because many of the existing files were read-only.

Second try: I put the upgrade "tgz" file in the existing Foswiki root directory and unpacked it there. Tar didn't generate any error messages, but when I look at the System/Webhome topic, it claims that I am still running Foswiki-1-1-3.

So: was my upgrade successful? Is there something else that I have to do?

The version reported by System and InstalledPlugins should be v2.1.7 - which you can check in any topic by adding the %WIKIVERSION% macro.

If you are running a site with mod_perl, fastcgi or fcgid, then you will need to restart your apache server to pick up the new version. Ah... also if you have the Foswiki Cache enabled, follow the instructions to refresh the cache, or you might not see the new version.

Don't forget that you should also run configure and update the JQuery version from 1.4.3 (or whatever you have set) to 1.7.1 for best operation with Foswiki 1.1.4.

If you continue to have trouble, please connect to the #Foswiki channel on IRC - it's easier to solve issues interactively.
