This upgrade is somewhat more labor intensive, mainly caused by splitting up the TWiki.Main web. Please note that subsequent updates will be much easier because user related topics (in TWiki.Main web) and TWiki related documents (in TWiki.TWiki web) have been separated.

    • In wikicfg.pm, change $wikiToolName from "TWikibeta" to "TWiki".
    • Restore any additional scripts you might have from the old directory, i.e.

      (Note that the changes script is obsolete.)
    • In case you have basic authentication:
      • The TWikiRegistration topic moved from the TWiki.Main web to the TWiki.TWiki web. Change .htaccess to reflect the new location, i.e.

      mv $TWIKIROOT/templates $TWIKIROOT/templates.old
    • Move the new templates to your original twiki/templates location, i.e.
      mv ~/tmp/templates $TWIKIROOT/templates
    • Merge the changes in your current template files into the new template files. To compare two files use

    • Pay attention to the file permissions of the TWiki directory and its subdirectory and files. The files must be writable by the cgi-scripts (usually user "nobody")

  • Upgrade data files ( twiki/data )
    • Move the new twiki/data/TWiki directory to your installation, i.e.
      mv ~/tmp/data/TWiki $TWIKIROOT/data/

    • Modify the WebPreferences topics in all your webs to reflect the following:
      • WEBTOPICLIST should use WebChanges for "Changes", and WebIndex for "Index", i.e.

      • In case you want to exclude a web from a web="all" search: Set this new preference
        Set NOSEARCHALL = on
    • The WebSearch topics has considerable changes. Copy the one from TWiki.TWiki into all webs, or merge them if you made changes. To copy, do an edit-copy-edit-paste operation.
    • Change the WebHome topics in all your webs to reflect these changes:
      1. The "Changes" link should point to WebChanges.
      2. The "Topic index" link should point to WebIndex.
      3. Change the include of the web table to %INCLUDE{"TWiki.TWikiWebsTable"}%
    • Move your TWikiWebsTable topic from TWiki.Main to TWiki.TWiki., i.e.
