Forum OpenACS Q&A: OpenACS 5.2

Posted by Prem Thomas on
I am new to installing OpenACS, though I've been reading about it off-and-on for years. I am installing OpenACS 5.2 on FreeBSD using Aldert's port and Postgres 8.0. It seems one can still get the 5.2 tar file, though the official release has been withdrawn due to bugs in the upgrade process with Oracle. Should I go ahead using the 5.2 tar since I use Postgres or wait for 5.2.1?

A new install of 5.2 on PostgreSQL will mostly work although there may be issues with optional packages. You will, of course, be able to upgrade to 5.2.0 to 5.2.1 when 5.2.1 becomes available.
