Notes on the update v4.7.1

If you update from 4.7, you have to overwrite all the files on your webspace. No execution of update.php is required in this case.

If you update from a previous version then go on here:

Notes on the update v4.7

If you update from v4.5.4 and below you should also read this article - after that go on here:

Important: The file config.php contains new table names for the new features. In order to update properly, make a backup of your old config.php-file and copy the settings of the old file into the new file. This way the new table names can't be forgotten. Besides, this file contains a new variable $dbprefix. You can set this variable, if you need a prefix at every database table name. This way you don't have to rename every table name by hand in the config-file.

The attributes.php-file didn't change, so you can simply take the old one.

Another important thing is to remove your old Galaxytool files completely, because the folder structure has changed, and otherwise some files may be redundant or obsolete on your webspace (when only overwriting the old files).

If you are user of the Bluetool: Please look at the following page . That is is the update of the Bluetool, which belongs to v4.7 of the Galaxytool. Please notice, that you may have to execute another update.php for the Bluetool itself. For more information look at the corresponding link above.

Before you start the update create a backup of the database. Use only phpmyadmin for this job. Mysqldumper will not copy the TRIGGERs.

After creating the database backup and uploading all the new files to your webspace, open the update.php with your browser, select the previous version of your Galaxytool and click on "Submit".

Note: The Galaxytool v4.7 has some new user permissions which are disabled by default. These new permissions are Fleet movements, Player activities, Delete and Galaxytool maintenance. For more information take a look here

Note: After the update on v4.7, the Galaxytool works only with the Firefox AddOn v2.5.3 or above. You should get this version automatically via AutoUpdate-function of Firefox. If that doesn't work, you can download the most recent version here.
