Upgrading from LAMS 2.3.4 to 2.3.5

Upgrading from 2.3.4 to 2.3.5

The process I followed is explained below:

As the root user download lams-unix-updater-2.3.5.tar.gz into /root:

lynx http://wiki.lamsfoundation.org/display/lams/Downloads#Downloads-unix

Stop LAMS:

service lams2 stop

Unpack the updater:

tar -xzvf lams-unix-updater-2.3.5.tar.gz
cd lams-unix-updater-2.3.5

Now simply run the updater and answer the questions it asks:

./update-lams.sh

Start LAMS and restart Apache and your upgrade is complete:

service lams2 start
service httpd restart

Note that there is about a one minute wait between restarting LAMS and it becoming available from the browser.
