Just upgraded to 2.8 yesterday (from 2.3.3).
Today - saw the message "2.8.1 available - please upgrade now" - decided to try out the automatic update procedure, and see if it's really any less painful than the old manual procedure.
I reached a screen asking for "connection information" - hostname, user, password, ftp/ftps.
But this is rather confusing, and undocumented as far as I can tell - is it asking for the host to download from, or the host my installation runs on? Is it asking for root, the account the web-server runs under, the admin user, or what?
And why is it asking at all - shouldn't it already know all of that?
Thanks for any advice.
