Using these instructions to upgrade from 5.02 to 6.0. Just want to make sure I am doing this correctly. Questions are in bold.
Need to ensure the downloaded zip file has been unblocked after downloading.
Move current (5.0.2) /openemr directory to a backup directory openemr_bk
Unpackage 6.0.0 openemr into web directory and rename the directory to openemr
This is in a new directory not the backup right?
Copy following directory from old 5.0.2 version to /openemr directory:
openemr_bk/sites/default/documents (COPY TO) => openemr/sites/default/documents
Copy the openemr/sites/default/sqlconf.php file from your old 5.0.2 version into the new openemr version
In the openemr/sites/default/sqlconf.php file, set the $config variable (found near bottom of file within bunch of slashes) to 1 ($config = 1;)
Open openemr/sql_upgrade.php (http://localhost/openemr/sql_upgrade.php) in web browser, choose 5.0.2 and click ‘Upgrade Database’
**Should I change the config file to point to the most current database? I have a backup **
Configure optional settings in openemr/sites/default/config.php files
Download and install most recent patch
After finishing this upgrade to OpenEMR version 6.0.0, it is recommended that you check if there are any patches to apply. If so, install the most recent patch for version 6.0.0. Instruction to do this can be found on the OpenEMR Patches page.
