- To patch Drupal 4.7.1 to Drupal 4.7.2, use the patches below:
For the most trouble-free transition from an existing installation, it is recommended that you first upgrade to Drupal 4.6.7 or Drupal 4.7.1. If you are upgrading from Drupal 4.5.x or below, please consult the Drupal 4.6.0 release announcement. To upgrade, upload all of the files and directories in the Drupal release package to your webserver, replacing older copies of the files. As with any upgrade, it is a good idea to back up your site and database first.
No API or database changes have been made since Drupal 4.6.7 and Drupal 4.7.1 so all contributed themes and modules should continue to work.
We have a security announcement mailing list, a history of all security advisories, and an RSS feed with the most recent security advisories. We strongly advise Drupal administrators to sign up for the list.
