Upgrading from Xen Media Gallery?


Well-known member
I already have Xen Media Gallery installed, so do I choose the "upgrade" option upon install of the Xenforo Media Gallery?

Just that I'm not entirely clear. :)

Just did the upgrade a few hours ago.

Just upload the files of XenForo Media Gallery 1.0.0 to your server (overwrite) and then upgrade the Xen Media Gallery add-on with the xml file of XFMG 1.0.0 and you're done :)

Review your settings and permissions after you finish!

Upgrading from Xen Media Gallery

Existing Xen Media Gallery customers can upgrade to XenForo Media Gallery following the usual add-on upgrade procedures. Download the latest version of XFMG from the your customer area and upload the new files over top of the old ones. Then, from your XenForo control panel, choose to update Xen Media Gallery and enter library/XenGallery/addon-XenGallery.xml as the local file. Once you submit the form, the upgrade process will begin. Once the rebuilds have completed, your upgrade to XenForo Media Gallery will be finished.

@Chris D

Is it correct that some features included in the latest version of XMG are missing in XFMG?
So an upgrade would actually be a downgrade?

I've read such comments on TAZ.

Thanks for the answer. If I find it again, I'll send you the link.

They talked about missing settings and/or permissions.

There were some permissions that were still in there from an old version that were removed (that didn't do anything) and we went with less granularity for "per page" options. There were about 10 different settings for the number of media items / albums / comments per page, we simplified these down to 3.
