Upgrading Cheetah to 1.1.0 Stable

Now that 1.1.0 stable is out, what is the upgrade process? This is not only for me now, but should be clearly stated on this Cheetah Answer Page.

The upgrade process was explained when i posted the release announcement. I will also put it here, however i may delete this in the future because that process will change with one of the upcoming versions to make upgrading easier.

Step 0

Back up your current Cheetah files, folders and database.

NOTE: This upgrade will work with the official Cheetah final versions ONLY. It will not work on beta releases. If you applied some fixes to your Cheetah install then this patch should work in most cases, but there may be some fixes that could cause conflict.

Step 1

Download and extract the patch appropriate for your version from and upload its files to your current installation, replacing all old files. Make sure that old files were REALLY replaced - the site can become nonfunctional if any old files are still in place.

Step 2

Remove the upgrade/.htaccess file via FTP or SSH.

Make sure that you removed .htaccess file from "upgrade" directory! Do not remove .htaccess file from Cheetah root folder, it will make almost all links on the site stop working.

NOTE: You may need to change your FTP client settings to show hidden files to see the .htaccess file in your FTP manager.

Step 3

Open the following URL in your favorite browser:

Replace and path-to-cheetah with your real values.

Apply all available updates. The script detects suitable updates automatically.

Step 4

Please follow and read all automatically completed steps of the upgrade script, paying special attention to the last step. The last step of this upgrade is IMPORTANT. You will be given special instructions by the script which you will have to do MANUALLY.

Step 5
