Upgrade selfoss to v2.6

Selfoss programe is very helpful to me. There is also some issues, such as duplicate items.

Anyway, I did the upgrade from 2.4 to v2.6 today.

The upgrade procedures are simple. See following upgrade guide. For me, I just did step 1, 2,3.

1. backup your database and your “data” folder
2. (IMPORTANT: don’t delete the “data” folder) delete all old files and folders excluding the folder “data”
3. upload all new files and folders excluding the data folder (IMPORTANT: also upload the invisible .htaccess files)
