  • Login to your Ossn admininstrator dashboard - don't log off.
  • Disable Cache.
  • Upload all files and folders from the locally unzipped archive to the former place on your server via FTP, SCP or a Filemanager of your choice. (When asked to allow overwriting of the old files: Answer YES to all)
  • Check the ownership of copied files and folders on your server. They must be read- and writable by the webserver process. In doubt ask your provider how to set permissions correctly.
