I installed by uploading the tarball, etc., not by cloning the gitorious repo, but, I have a friendica instance that I did via github, and updating it is so easy.
So, I think I'd like to use the https://gitorious.org/StatusNet
, so I can just pull updates.
Is this doable?
I imagine I should backup my config.php and the custom theme I wrote, but what if I do that, copy them somewhere else on the machine, wipe my whole status directory (rm -rf) and then clone the gitorious repo, then replace my config.php and re-add my theme in there.
Oh, plus I'd have to do the same with lib/primarynav.php, because I added custom links.
I imagine the site would then repopulate itself from the db, since that wouldn't be touched by this process, yes?
TL;DR: Would this work? Back up anything I changed, delete installation, rebuild by cloning gitorious repo, replace my customizations and config.php
