Migrating from G1 to G2: Directories?
|Posted: Fri, 2007-08-03 21:40|
I printed out the instructions on migrating from G1 to G2 (http://codex.gallery2.org/Gallery2:migration) and something in the Overview section doesn't make sense. Step 2 in the overview says to install G2 into a new "folder" on the server. Step 6 recommends that you "ensure your old Gallery 1 URLs still work with Gallery 2".
If it's installed into a new location, the old URLs should not work.
Would it break anything if I ignored all that and, after making a backup and running the pre-upgrade verifications, simply install G2 right over my G1 setup? I'm currently running v1.5.6.
