These steps are not going to work. If you want to move from 1.4 to 1.5,
you will need to follow the procedure explained on the UPGRADE file:

1) Make a copy of the following files: and setup.conf.php
2) Extract your new Eventum copy over your existing folder structure
3) Copy over your backed up copies of and setup.conf.php
   back in place
4) Run the upgrade scripts described in each section below by opening
   these scripts in your web browser

See the UPGRADE file for more details. Let me know if you have any

I'm not sure what URL you are referring to. If you want to change the
URL that gets sent on outgoing emails, then open
/path-to-eventum/ and change the APP_HOSTNAME constant to
whatever new domain you are using now.

As far as changing the URL on the existing emails that were already
sent, you would need to change a bunch of places, but I don't really
think you need to worry about it.

I'm glad Eventum has been useful to your organization. Tell your
