WebFaction
Community site: login faq

I used the WebFaction Control Panel to create my first Drupal site. I got a nice installation of Drupal 7.4 which I've been using to learn the CMS.

Now I'm getting nudged to update to Drupal 7.7. The Drupal admin pages say "Updates of Drupal core are not supported at this time.", and there is no upgrade mechanism in the Web Faction Control Panel. Yet when I try to follow other directions online, I'm not allowed to work with Drupal root dir I own, I assume because the shared web server is accessing it.

 [brrc@web70 webapps]$ mv brrc_cms/ brrc_cms74
 mv: cannot move `brrc_cms/' to `brrc_cms74': Permission denied
 [brrc@web70 webapps]$ ls -ld brrc_cms
 drwxr-sr-x 9 brrc brrc 4096 Jul  5 15:39 brrc_cms

Is there a simple way of upgrading when I use the shared installations, or must I install Drupal manually under the Apache instance I have if I want to upgrade?

Hi,

Its not because the shared web server is accessing the directory but because we don't allow users to move webapps over the command-line since it breaks the mapping of apps on the control panel to the disk. If you want to do the above move, you can do it by creating a Static/CGI/PHP app from the panel named brrc_cms74 first and then moving files using:

mv brrc_cms/* brrc_cms74/*
