====Secure Upgrade====
**How do I securely upgrade a live Wikka Wiki site?**
Wikka wiki include a web-based upgrade script. However, this script exposes the upgrade form to any visitor while the site is upgrading. How can I upgrade my live public wiki site as an admin without exposing the upgrade form to other non-admin visitors?

**1. Backup database and current wiki directory.**
cd /path/to/mywiki/wiki
cp -Rv ../wiki /tmp/wiki-backup-$(date +%Y%m%d)
mysqldump MY_WIKI_DB | bzip2 > /tmp/MY_WIKI_DB-$(date +%Y%m%d).bz2

**2. Add plain text file name locked to your wiki directory with a temporary (plaintext) password on first line.**
cd /path/to/mywiki/wiki
touch locked
echo "mytmppassword" > locked

**3. Download [[http://wikkawiki.org/downloads | latest version of Wikka Wiki]] source and copy into wiki directory.**
cd /tmp
wget http://wikkawiki.org/downloads/Wikka-x.x.x.zip
unzip Wikka-x.x.x.zip
cp Wikka-x.x.x/* /path/to/mywiki/wiki

~- NOTE: Search/Replace TYPE with ENGINE in setup/install.php to avoid [[http://stackoverflow.com/q/11752250/1093087 | this bug]]

**4. Proceed with upgrade by visiting site in browser.**
~- You'll be prompted with a basic auth login prompt. Enter **admin** for user name and password in locked file.

**5. Removed locked file**
cd /path/to/mywiki/wiki
rm locked
