Real newbee question (CVS) and last stable version.

posts: 8311 Israel


What is CVS ?
Is it a kind of patch or correction for tiki ?
If yes, how to use it ?
Yes, i know nothing about it and i'm no Dev at all ! confused

I'm asking that because since i have update to 1.8 i got a lot of troubles.

I have updated to resolve some problemes (chat - java error on some client, ephemeride - corrected, games - the game is not displayed correctly, Home Page - not going where i ask for certain groups, etc).

Except ephemeride i can't tell things get better, worst, i got memory (my admin tried all that has been suggested here) troubles (files galleries) even when i click on forum link (last forum topics). This last thing worked fine on 1.7.5.

So, if i miss something about update and stable versions, i'll be glad to know what.question

Try grabbing the 1.8.1 tarball from SourceForge, its much better and lots of bugfixes ReleaseProcess181 biggrin

CVS is a Code versioning system, allowing many developers to work on 1 project. HowToDev I think has details.

Let us know how you get on with 1.8.1 and btw 1.8.2 is just around the corner wink

As i got only ftp access (and permissions are tricky), i ask my server admin to do the work each update...

You would understand that i can't ask him to do so every week ! :-D

1.8.1 is ok and it is a "best" guess or should i wait a few days ?

Thanks Damian to keep helping me ! confused
