Since the install routine generates a whole new generic tree under /web , how on earth can you upgrade a site once created? When the beta comes out I would get a new openacs-4 tree there, right next to the current wimls tree. Only this time I can't just rename openacs-4 to wimls like I did last time. I saw some comments on this from a couple of years ago, but I assume the scripts mentioned won't understand the new system. Do I have to dump the data, move all my own files, and then restore the data? Is this as scary as I fear?
On a related subject, my first project will be using data from a foreign source. Should my scripts for wget'ing that data and importing it to my database be done inside the /web/wimls tree or somewhere else? For that matter, should the data be inserted into the wimls database or into another database?
Yeah, I know, I'm clueless here, but I do appreciate the help I get!
