I've been noticing a surge of SVN commits over the last couple of weeks, now I know why!

Great job and thanks to the entire team for such hard work!

Struggling to upgrade to this, so had to reinstall. Just out of interest, what permissions should I give the folders when I install efront. It asks for www/themes and a bunch of others to be writeable (im using Centos 5.5). Then in maintenance tab, themes was the only one with a red stop sign and it said missing? But it wasnt missing because I was using themes ha! Think this could of been the problem with the upgrade, and its lucky that no one is using my system because it broke!

Post a module link in the lesson catalog (http://forum.efrontlearning.net/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=3093&p=15960#p15960) works well, thank you. ;)

Hello Amador,
I am not sure why this happened. Do you know whether the upgrade process finished successfully? In any case, I suggest that you download the 3.6.10 full archive from our members site (where you found it originally) and extract on top of your current installation. That should immediately resolve your issues

I had to a fresh install. It wasnt too bad because I only purchased eFront the other day so, wasnt much to change. Im still getting that red stop sign for www/themes. What could be causing this?
