This document will guide you to upgrade your Drupal 7 Business Class 2.0 installation to Business Class 2.1 for Drupal 7.
Prepare your workbench
- Be sure that you are currently running Business Class 2.0 for Drupal 7.
- Create a temporary installation of Drupal 7 Business Class 2.1 using our installation profile. You will use this as a reference to guide you.
- Backup everything.
- Just in case, make sure you backed up everything =) (besides, it's always a good idea).
Update Drupal core
Take a breath and read Drupal's Upgrading form previous versions first. This upgrade will update your Drupal core to the version 7.9. We assume that you are curently using a 7.x version so it's about a "Minor update procedure".
- Locate the root folder of your site. Is the Drupal's roor folder, there where the index.php is located.
- Delete all Drupal files and folders except the [sites] folder.
- Copy all Drupal files and folders from your temporary installation except the [sites] folder.
- Login to your Drupal installation as administration user, your site should still work usual.
- Run the update.php file calling a url like http://www.example.com/update.php or http://www.example.com/test_site/update.php, if your site is located under a subdirectory.
Patch your site's DataBase
Because a known Drupal issue, http://drupal.org/node/1170362, related to update.php and the installation profiles the next system message may be appeared:
Notice: Undefined index: name/version in system_requirements()
To solve this use a tool like phpMyAdmin and:

- Change the status of this row from 0 to 1
