This feature allows b2evolution to automatically upgrade itself.
For more info, see: Auto-Upgrade Procedure.
This feature works in conjunction with the upgrade_policy.conf file.
Once the new version is downloaded, the version number and release date is compared with the currently installed version. This will prevent from installing an old version over a new one. It will also prevent reinstalling an already installed version.
- This feature is considered future proof only starting at version 5.0.6 (it means you should have 5.0.6 installed before attempting to upgrade with this feature).
- If you have moved your "conf" directory, the auto upgrade can not be done (to read a little more about configuration files please go here: Configuration Files).
- This feature may cause the loss of important files by overwriting them, for example if you added some hacks to your current installation. Make sure the backup operation is functioning properly.
