D7: Update Core minor version 7.xx

These are notes I made, when upgrading Drupal Core from 1.0-beta5 (7.22) from a TB Sirate Distribution to Core 7.28.

— Udate Core from 1.0-beta5 (7.22) to 7.28 ———
Running update.php is not possible due to a proper version number is missing
Unresolved dependency System (Version >=7.11 required). Currently using System version 1.0-beta5

So solution is to update core:
Instruction: https://drupal.org/node/1494290

  • Create folder mysite/administrator/backups
  • Web with http://backup.mysite.xx/ //An installed backup site
  • SQL with phpMyAdmin – mydb – Export: Custom – OutputCompression: gzipped – Go


  • Download 7.28 from https://drupal.org/project/drupal
  • Extract
  • admin/config/development/maintenance – Select set in maint mode – save
  • Delete all files except
    • /sites
    • /profiles/themebrain_profile
  • Move extracted files to root except /sites
  • If the update release includes changes to settings.php replace old settings.php in /sites/default/ with the new one, and edit site-specific entries (eg database name, user, and password)
  • If you modified files such as .htaccess or robots.txt re-apply those changes to the new files.
  • /user/login
  • Update http://mysite.xx/update.php
  • admin/config/development/maintenance – UnSelect set in maint mode – save

The End.
