Hi all,
Please help me how to update Oxwall 1.4.1 to 1.5.3 manually.
I have followed this link http://docs.oxwall.org/install:update#manual-update .
But when I open my mysite.com/ow_updates it's showing like this :

Hello I have no idea if I'm posting in correct place but I wonder if anyone would be able to 

do an upgrade from 1.4.0 to the lastest version for me. I have tried several times and keep 

getting errors . I  have a back up of my website and would be happy to send over my ftp 

details if someone can help me out?

What kind of errors do you get?
TJ Jul 15 '13
On the first attempt, all our members data was lost and certain 

things did not work upon clearing cache such as being unable 

to post / delete a comment and use admin .. 

I have reverted back to 1.4.0 so it's all back to normal . I am not an 

expert so maybe I did something wrong. But if someone can point 

me in the right direction or do it for me that would be great. 

Forgot to say I am wanting to upgrade to 1.5.3 !!!

Thought I'd update , unsure if I am doing anything wrong here 

but at the moment I am using a trial website so no problem with 

losing members data. When using ftp to transfer photo's for example. 

They transfer but do not show on website. Any idea why?

How to install your old version correct?This a code on ow.php in lines - 100,101,102,103 on new version 1.5.3.Maybe anyway on old version not update correct.Have you changed anything in your files? and to remove something in the original code?

                'host' => OW_DB_HOST,
                'username' => OW_DB_USER,
                'password' => OW_DB_PASSWORD,
                'dbname' => OW_DB_NAME
