View Full Version : Upgrading Mura to version 5.2 (New Framework)

February 25th, 2010, 10:33 PM
The recently released 5.2 version of Mura contains a MAJOR update, a new faster framework. We highly recommend upgrading your site for better performance, and decreased initial load times. While you may be running the 5.2 version already, it's recommended to stay updated with the latest release which can be found HERE (http://trac.blueriver.com/mura/timeline).

The steps to upgrade Mura on Shared Hosting:

1. Download files from: http://www.getmura.com/index.cfm/download/mura-downloads/index.cfm
- Click "Download Mura Standard"

2. Locally extract the files, this should create a folder named: mura-5.2.1804

3. After the files are fully extracted, open this folder. Depending on the type of FTP program, you may be able to simply drag and drop the folders and files needed into the FTP utility.
- Open the www folder to access the folders you'll be copying to your site.

4. Open your preferred FTP utility (we prefer filezilla or cuteftp), connecting to your Mura equipped site.

5. Open the following URL and complete the steps provided: http://docs.getmura.com/index.cfm/installation-set-up/upgrading-mura/upgrading-mura-manually/
- When asked by your FTP utility if you want to overwrite, click YES for all except files specifically mentioned in the upgrade steps at the URL above.
- Also copy over the following files in the root directory of your mura application:
-- Application.cfc
-- contentServer.cfm
-- index.cfm
-- MuraProxy.cfc

6. I would recommend, creating a new /config/settings.ini.cfm file using the one provided in the upgrade. Make sure to back yours up first, then copy all of your settings from the existing file into the new file. Save this and then upload it over the file currently being used.

6. After updating is complete, reload your Mura application by pasting this code after the trailing foward slash in your site's url.
- ?appreload
-- Example: http://domain.com/mura/index.cfm?appreload

Anyone receiving this error when trying to upload photos through the site manager when using Mura version 5.2.1985, should update to the latest release.

access denied (java.io.FilePermission C:\ColdFusion9\runtime\servers\coldfusion\SERVER-INF\temp\wwwroot-tmp read)

Updating to 5.2.2006 resolved the issue.

The steps to upgrade (from Mura 5.2 users) are provided here: http://docs.getmura.com/index.cfm/installation-set-up/upgrading-mura/

Mura just posted a new release that sets the clientStorage to "cookie" instead of "registry".

If you are using a pre Mura 5.2 framework, please update your site right away to the newest build for better performance.

If you have a Mura 5.2.x install, either upgrade to the latest release (recommended), or be sure to set your application.cfc file to use "cookie" instead of "registry" for the clientStorage.

Actually, not sure if this changed but you need to add that setting to /config/cfapplication.cfm. This file is not part of the SVN, it gets created upon install.
