Upgrading from 3.1.6 to 3.1.7

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/ directory.


If you have any custom developed files in these directories, please make copies of them first.

Step 2: Remove usage of CAPTCHA helper extra parameters (deprecation)

The CAPTCHA Helper function create_captcha() allows passing of its img_path, img_url and font_path options as the 2nd, 3rd and 4th parameters respectively.

This kind of usage is now deprecated and you should just pass the options in question as part of the first parameter array.


The functionality in question is still available, but you’re strongly encouraged to remove its usage sooner rather than later.
