If I need to upgrade the libraries api module from 1.0 to 2.0?
can I delete the libraries api folder and replace it with the new 2.0 and run update.php?
thanks a lot.

Found a workaround.

(first place site in maintenance mode ;-)
1. Rename current libraries directory (e.g. with Filezilla)
current directory is present in sites>all>modules>contrib
renamed to libraries_old

2. Zip file, decompressed and with FTP placed in sites>all>modules>contrib
3. Afterwards run update database.

In the module list, new version will be visible.

4. Put site out of maintenance

Works for me

Optional: remove dir sites>all>modules>contrib>libraries_old

just a tip:

don't leave old versions behind. if not in use, remove from the modules folder.

Also, as velden000 said, the upgrade is straight forward. Delete old version (v1), upload new version (v2) and run update.php .

Just did another upgrade from 7.x-1.0 to 7.x-2.2

As mentioned above.

  1. Deleted libraries folder (v1)
  2. Uploaded libraries folder (v2.2)
  3. Ran update.php - it had one pending update and finished sucessfully.

No issues afaik.
