Hi All,

I have a Jevents 2.0 config on J1.7.1 working fairly well, with the RSVPpro bits and pieces as well.. (details of versions as below)

I am trying to upgrade to 2.0.4 - but when I try to upload the 2.0.4 zip file to the site, I get an "Upload Failed" error, and it doesn't get upgraded.

So - I removed Jevents, and then installed 2.0.4 - but lost all of my events. (time to restore my backup - no real issue there)

So - question is - How to upgrade the components sanely ?
(again once details below - from 2.0.4 show me what I need to do - but the question is how without losing data)



plugin_jevents_jevcalendar 1.3 1.3.2
plugin_jevents_jevcustomfields 1.1.1 1.2.2
plugin_jevents_jevrsvppro 1.3.7 1.3.18 1.3.15
component_com_rsvppro 1.3.7 1.3.18
module_mod_jevents_cal 2.0.0 RC1 2.0.1
module_mod_jevents_filter 2.0.0 RC13 2.0.0
module_mod_jevents_latest 2.0.0 RC 13 2.0.1
module_mod_jevents_legend 2.0.0 RC1 2.0.0

Same error...

"-1 - An error has occurred.
Copy failed

Ok - Panic over.
Found the issue (sorta)

I did the following..

cd /mysite/joomla/../
i.e. - above my joomla install area, and then did...

chmod -R g+rwx

the group is my apache user - so, bottom line make sure apache user has full read/write access to all Joomla files.

I will admit, I thought that I had already done this....
Hey ho....
