Upgrading from 2.1.4 to 2.2.0¶
The Encrypt Class now requires the Mcrypt extension. If you were previously using the Encrypt Class without Mcrypt, then this is a breaking change. You must install the Mcrypt extension in order to upgrade. For information on installing Mcrypt please see the PHP documentation <http://php.net/manual/en/mcrypt.setup.php>.
Before performing an update you should take your site offline by replacing the index.php file with a static one.
Step 1: Update your CodeIgniter files¶
Replace all files and directories in your “system” folder.
If you have any custom developed files in these folders please make copies of them first.
