The simpler media website CMS
I'm eagerly awaiting the final release of 1.6, but because my host is going to start charging a fee this month if I don't get off of PHP 7.x, to avoid closing down my site, I may have to upgrade to the most recent release candidate in the meantime.
Since upgrading to PHP 8.x breaks Zenphoto 1.59, I wondered the best method of updating... My plan would be to do the following:
1: Backup my database for safety via Zenphoto
2: On my host, change my PHP from 7.4 to 8.1 fast CGI (or will this release only be for 8.0 at this time - I can choose from 8.0 CGI, 8.0 FastCGI, 8.1 CGI and 8.1 FastCGI - which do you recommend?)
3: Via FTP, delete the zpCore folder and my themes folder (except for zpBootstrap, which I use, and believe will work with some tweaks I've worked out in another thread - the test will be an install with more than 2 pictures, lol).
4: Upload index.php, and the zpCore folder and theme folder from the new release, replacing what I just deleted.
5: Log in and follow any instructions given.
If this is incorrect, let me know, please. Thanks, and thanks for all your work in preparing the next release!
