The first public release candidate version of ProofBuddy is now available for download.
Note that although ProofBuddy 1.0 has been under testing for the past several weeks this release candidate version is still considered a pre-release version and you may still find bugs. If you do, we would appreciate posting them to our support forums so that they can be fixed.
If this is the first time you’ve installed ProofBuddy or you are installing fresh you can just upload the contents of the zip file. A setup script will run the first time you browse to where you installed ProofBuddy.
More information on installation can be found in our documentation.
Upgrading from 0.7
If you are upgrading the first step you must take is backing up your database and files. There are not any known cases of database corruption during the update process, but it’s better to be safe.
To backup your database download the database backup script below and follow the instructions in the readme file contained within.
You also should download your entire ProofBuddy folder to someplace safe on your computer. Again, there are not any known cases of file corruption during the update process but it pays to be safe.
Pay special attention to any customizations you’ve done to the Basic White or Basic Black themes. They will most likely be overwritten when you upload 1.0. However, it is important that the full basic_white folder is uploaded as the theme format has changed slightly and ProofBuddy occasionally needs files out of that directory to function correctly. If you have customizations the easiest method to keep your changes is to copy the contents of the basic_white theme folder to a new folder under /user/themes/. Any new folders will not be changed.
Next, download the 1.0 release candidate version of ProofBuddy.
Note that this is the rc2 release which replaced the rc1.
Unzip and upload the contents of the zip into your ProofBuddy folder.
If you are upgrading the first visit to your site will prompt you to upgrade your database. If you are installing fresh then the first visit will prompt you for information to setup ProofBuddy on your server.
If you are currently a registered user of version 0.7 please contact us with your name, email address, and an approximate date of registration for an updated pro file. The version from 0.7 should work, although there have been a few changes.
