<h1>Upgrading from 1.5.4 to 1.6.0</h1>

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

<h2>Step 1: Update your CodeIgniter files</h2>

<p>Replace these files and directories in your "system" folder with the new versions:</p>



<p class="important"><strong>Note:</strong> If you have any custom developed files in these folders please make copies of them first.</p>

<h2>Step 2: Add time_to_update to your config.php </h2>
<p>Add the following to application/config/config.php with the other session configuration options</p>
<p><code>$config['sess_time_to_update']			= 300;</code></p>
<h2>Step 3: Add $autoload['model']</h2>
<p>Add the following to application/config/autoload.php</p>
<p><code> /*<br />
	| -------------------------------------------------------------------<br />
	|  Auto-load Model files<br />
	| -------------------------------------------------------------------<br />
	| Prototype:<br />
	|<br />
	|  $autoload['model'] = array('my_model');<br />
	|<br />
	*/<br />
	<br />
	$autoload['model'] = array();</code></p>
<h2>Step 4: Add  to your database.php </h2>
<p>Make the following changes to your application/config/database.php file:</p>
<p>Add the following variable above the database configuration options, with <dfn>$active_group</dfn></p>
<p><code>$active_record = TRUE;</code></p>
<p>Remove the following from your database configuration options</p>
<p><code>$db['default']['active_r'] = TRUE;</code></p>
<p>Add the following to your database configuration options</p>
<p><code>$db['default']['char_set'] = &quot;utf8&quot;;<br />
$db['default']['dbcollat'] = &quot;utf8_general_ci&quot;;</code></p>

<h2>Step 5: Update your user guide</h2>
<p>Please also replace your local copy of the user guide with the new version.</p>
