Does anyone have clear instructions on how to upgrade CiviHR? The ones included on GitHub are for drupal. I tried to do it manually by copying over the CiviHR folder with 1.6.8 but it just broke CiviCRM altogether. I don't have access to drush or anything like that, so I can only copy it and then run the updates manually in extensions manager in CiviCRM.
CiviHR isn't a normal extension that you can install on a general purpose CiviCRM installation. It is intended to be run as a dedicated CiviHR system and is only supported on Drupal.
There is a new site at https://civihr.org/ and wiki at https://civihr.atlassian.net/wiki/display/CIV/Welcome
There is a lot of development activity ongoing and some of the docs are lagging behind. I think they are still offering free hosting if you join the Early Adopters program and meet certain requirements.
