  18. 18. take stock of you add- on requirements • started out with near zero add-ons availabl • many popular add-ons have been ported
  19. 19. use as opp to streamline site • reduce reliance on third-party add-ons • maybe a different, native way to do the same thing
  20. 20. upgrade directly on server • use a sandbox version of the site • use version control • use a dev server or domain

  25. 25. move the files • download the EE 2 software • rename existing system directory to system_old • copy over new system directory, rename to whatever • update index.php with system directory name • rename themes to themes_old, copy over new themes • set permissions • copy over old config.php file to config/ of EE 2
  26. 26. preparing your templates
  27. 27. move templates • all templates in db must also be saved as files or installer chokes • empty template files are currently problematic but i filed a bug
  28. 28. does EE update templates with channel? • yes
  29. 29. trackbacks are gone
  30. 30. No more Gallery Module • the site i upgraded had a gallery module. EE 2 left the database tables intact, so i could write a custom add-on or code to use that gallery data (or export it)
  31. 31. securing ee 2 • mark huot's eeinsider.com article
  32. 32. ask for help • EL wants to make sure your upgrade works. my first try didn't but they helped.

  37. 37. File Manager
  38. 38. screenshot(s) • great for clients that need simple image editing - doesnt' require photoshop • connects directly to the file upload fieldtype
  39. 39. third_party
  40. 40. • low nospam
  41. 41. add-ons • when beta came out only a handful were available, mostly plugins • since then playa, matrix, wygwam, low variables, (MORE HERE)
