This file contains some useful hints for upgrading from a previous version.

UPGRADING ezmlm-web 3.2 to ezmlm-web 3.3
1) the file webusers is mandatory
The admin has to add ALLOW_CREATE or user-specific permissions to the
webusers file, to allow changes to mailing lists otherwise no changes are
allowed. If you have ezmlm-web running already, a webusers file has already
been created for you (this was actually a bug - see issue #51 in the bug
database).
This change should not have any negative impact on working installations.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
UPGRADING ezmlm-web 3.1 to ezmlm-web 3.2
1) the following dependency was added:
- File::Path
2) CSS stylesheet file
The css stylesheet file changed significantly. Please update your copy.
Additionally the stylesheet file was splitted into a common and a color
scheme part. Thus you need to specify the location of your color scheme
CSS file (a URL) in your ezmlmwebrc as HTML_CSS_COLOR. Otherwise your web
interface will be plain black and white. Read 'man ezmlmwebrc' for details.
Be aware that at least one of the supplied color schemes requires some
images to be available in the directory of the stylesheet file.
The easiest approach would be to publish the 'www-data' directory via an
'Alias' (or something similar) with your favourite web server.
Take a look at examples/apache.conf.dist for an example.
3) possible locations of ezmlmwebrc
ezmlm-web does no longer search for a configuration file (ezmlmwebrc) in
the current directory, as this can be a security risk.
If you relied on this behavior (should be rare), then you have two options:
A) move your configuration file to one of the other possible locations
B) patch the source of ezmlm-web.cgi to include the deprecated
configuration file location. Do this on your own risk!
4) renamed configuration setting
The configuration setting 'HTML_CSS_FILE' is replaced by 'HTML_CSS_COMMON'
for clarity. 'HTML_CSS_COMMON' falls back to the value of 'HTML_CSS_FILE'
if it is undefined. Thus your setup should work as before. But you are
encouraged to replace the setting, as it might break your setup in a
future version of ezmlm-web.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
UPGRADING ezmlm-web 3.0 to ezmlm-web 3.1
1) update the perl module Mail::Ezmlm to v0.07
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
UPGRADING ezmlm-web 2.3 to ezmlm-web 3.0
1) install clearsilver (see INSTALL for details)
2) copy the "template" directory somewhere (see INSTALL again)
3) set "TEMPLATE_DIR" in your ezmlmwebrc file to this directory
4) copy the languge directory somewhere and adjust the "LANGUAGE_DIR" setting
4) maybe you want to define "MAIL_DOMAIN" in your ezmlmwebrc
5) the search order for ezmlmwebrc has changed
from HOME -> SYSTEM -> CGI_DIR
to HOME -> CGI_DIR -> SYSTEM
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
UPGRADING ezmlm-web 2.2 to ezmlm-web 2.3
1) set the location (URL) of the css file in ezmlmwebrc
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
UPGRADING ezmlm-web 2.1 to ezmlm-web 2.2
1) Creating of new lists is now controlled by a line in the webusers file instead
of a commandline switch for ezmlm-web.cgi.
necessary changes:
- optional: remove switch "-c" when calling ezmlm-web.cgi (take a look at index.c)
- optional: add a line like "ALLOW_CREATE: john, myra" to the webusers file
2) The location of the webusers file is now defined in ezmlmwebrc. (default: $LIST_DIR/webusers)
necessary changes:
- optional: add a line like "$WEBUSERS_FILE = /home/ml/webusers" to ezmlmwebrc
3) A german translation is available.
- optional: include "lang/de.pm" in ezmlmwebrc (there you can also remove the english definitions)
or copy the new ezmlmwebrc :)
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
UPGRADING ezmlm-web 2.0 to ezmlm-web 2.1
There are no major changes that need to be made in order to upgrade. All
that is necessary is to add two new lines to your ezmlmwebrc ... In the top
section of the file add
$FILE_UPLOAD = 1;
and in the %HELPER section, you need to add
addaddressfile => 'or you may enter the filename of a plain text file containing multiple RFC822 email addresses, one per line',
(or just copy the new ezmlmwebrc :)
Have a look for these two lines in the new ezmlmwebrc included in this
distribution if you are unsure of how/where to put these.
