Hi Seb,

Many thanks for this.Since files under archives/ourarchive/cfg/* aren't touched, I guess our ethesis sub-collection will remain untouched.

Regards,
Ranju.

The local configuration (archives/ourarchive/cfg/*) isn't     usually modified, and actually you'll need to do this by hand (i.e.     you could missing some new features/conf).> >      I usually do after the upgrade:> >      cd <your eprints install path>>      diff -rq lib/defaultcfg/ archives/ourarchive/cfg> >      this will tell you of missing files (that you can copy over) and     changes (that you may need to merge, I use vimdiff to check this).> >      If some conf files contain new fields/datasets, you may need to run     bin/epadmin update ourarchive so that EPrints adds the new DB     tables/columns.> >      You should also diff your old template with the new one (some things     have changed in 3.3, esp. the <head> section).> >      If you wrote custom plugins, those may break in 3.3.> >      Last but not least, you may need to disable people logging in during     the upgrade process.
