Before proceeding with the ATutor upgrade, we will recommend you to create a full backup of your ATutor installation. In this way you will be able to restore it in a case of a failed upgrade.
Define the folder of the aTutor application which you want to upgrade. The new and the old folders should be on the same directory level.
The versions after aTutor 1.6 are using the UTF-8 charset for the database. If the database is not converted, this means that your installation is older than aTutor 1.6. The conversion option will be provided during the upgrade procedure.
In order to complete the upgrade you should download the latest aTutor installation package from their official web site. Extract the archive under your computer. Then you should upload the extracted folder using cPanel -> FileManager for your hosting account or through an FTP Client. The uploaded folder should be placed under the public_html directory.
Please follow the detailed steps from our ATutor upgrade video tutorial:
The ATutor upgrade is completed.
You can use your favourite FTP Client to remove the install folder and to make the include/config.inc.php file read-only. Also, through it you can copy the content folder under the new ATutor directory and remove the old one.
Edit include/config.inc.php using cPanel -> FileManager and define the content folder path in the following line:
Replace the above path with the correct one for your installation.
Then you can rename the new ATutor directory per your preference.
