flyspray Documentation

Some Fossies usage hints in advance:

  1. To see the Doxygen generated documentation please click on one of the items in the steelblue colored "quick index" bar above or use the side panel at the left which displays a hierarchical tree-like index structure and is adjustable in width.
  2. If you want to search for something by keyword rather than browse for it you can use the client side search facility (using Javascript and DHTML) that provides live searching, i.e. the search results are presented and adapted as you type in the Search input field at the top right.
  3. Doxygen doesn't incorporate all member files but just a definable subset (basically the main project source code files that are written in a supported language). So to search and browse all member files you may visit the Fossies flyspray-1.0-rc10.tar.gz contents page and use the Fossies standard member browsing features (also with source code highlighting and additionally with optional code folding).

  1. Create a backup of your files and database

  2. Remove all files but keep:

    • flyspray.conf.php
    • attachments/ directory
    • avatars/ directory
    • maybe your own logo image if you replaced the flyspray logo
    • maybe .htaccess if you use it
    • maybe own extra customized *.css files like custom_yourproject.css in themes/CleanFS/ (only users of 1.0-dev versions)
  3. Copy the new files to the Flyspray directory

  4. Make sure flyspray.conf.php is writeable by the webserver.

  5. Open http://yourflyspray/setup/ in your webbrowser. It detects the existing installation and you can follow the upgrade steps.

  6. Note: Do not forget to press F5 (or CTRL+F5, depending on cache policy) after the upgrade in web browser to reload also cached CSS-files to see effects of updated CSS-files. They are cached by default for 14 days in the webbrowser.
