CodeIgniter User Guide Version 2.2.6

Upgrading from 2.1.4 to 2.2.0

Note: The Encryption Class now requires the Mcrypt extension. If you were previously using the Encrypt Class without Mcrypt this is a breaking change, you must install the Mcrypt extension in order to upgrade. For information on installing Mcrypt please see the PHP documentation.

Before performing an update you should take your site offline by replacing the index.php file with a static one.

Step 1: Update your CodeIgniter files

Replace all files and directories in your "system" folder and replace your index.php file. If any modifications were made to your index.php they will need to be made fresh in this new one.

Note: If you have any custom developed files in these folders please make copies of them first.
