Upgrading Custom Themes and Templates

For each customized theme and/or template, you will run a 3-way diff against core (current core version on the left, new version on the right, customized version in the middle).

  1. Upgrade your existing Jive instance using the instructions in Upgrading a Linux Package.
  2. Copy your production themes to the target server. Your themes are located in /usr/local/jive/applications/sbs/home/themes.
  3. Copy your production templates to the targer server. Your templates are located in /usr/local/jive/applications/sbs/home/templates.
  4. For each customized theme and template, run a 3-way diff against core (e.g., current core version on the left, new version on the right, customized version in the middle). DiffMerge is a useful tool for performing diffs.
  5. Merge from the right all differences between the old and new core themes/templates. Keep your custom modifications.
