As requested here is a write up on my wiki upgrade experience and known issues:
Built wiki Farm on (pmwiki-2.1.27):
30+ farm pages
Upgraded to pmwiki-2.2.0-beta65 in order to utilize extract.php
set $SiteAdminGroup = $SiteGroup;
in the farmconfig.php in order to avoid moving the notify lists around on 30+ farmed wikis.
I followed the upgrade procedures to the letter and the upgrade took less than 1 second.
I had to chmod 2777 wiki.d/ from 777 in order for the upgrade to work. other wise is got a restricted access type error.
I found that if someone creates a table using table directives within the >>comment<< >><< and does not put a (:tableend:) at the end of the table the side bar will disappear from that page. this was not an issue in the previous version
Default Group issue:
In one of my config files I had
$DefaultGroup = 'Group Name'
this caused the entire farmsite to error and only display "page ''' does not exist"
I set $DefaultGroup = 'GroupName' (i.e. no whitespace) and the page displayed correctly.
Apparently the previous version ignores whitespace??
If any other issues pop up I will append them to this message.
All in all this was an easy upgrade to a great product with only a few minor issues so far.
Is there a proper way to submit possible bugs to pmwiki?
