Newbie here. Just did the one click install for dreamhost's Omeka 1.5.3 and I got the error message:
"fileinfo" module not loaded
Without the fileinfo module loaded into PHP, the content type and encoding of uploaded files about cannot be read. The installer will disable file upload validation.
Fine. I read here that is probably not a problem. Okay. The install went okay. I then d/l'ed the 2.1.1 zip file, unzipped and then ftp'ed all the files to the server... blowing the installation. (I didn't read all the upgrade docs first, my bad). So, I deleted everything and started a fresh 1.5.3 install and after editing the db.ini file as required, it is back up and running again.
The upgrade docs are a bit confusing to me and I don't want to blow this installation. Anyone have some tips or steps for this 2.1.1 upgrade? Do I need to upgrade my database?
I haven't started adding content yet, so the Omeka app is empty, so not concerned with backing up data. I'm upgrading as once I get a stable app, I probably won't upgrade for years, so want to start with the most current version possible...
