0005004: Implement upgrade process
Some thoughts of how to upgrade the multisites:

1. Main site admin unzip the latest ATutor release and place it in the same directory that contains the old main site and subsites.

2. go to upgrade script. The first upgrade step lists all the directories at the same level of ATutor root, with one checkbox besides each directory.

3. The admin selects the old main site and subsites to upgrade.

4. Upgrade process reads config from each site and upgrade its database.

Another thought is, only upgrades the main site, keeps the old main site and continuing support subsites with the old version until subsite admins decide to upgrade to the new version.

"manage_multi" repo: e76d3e9fc21f41c0ccbc0c2d18c8922a9757bcce
"atutor" repo: 372b3855c8818184fa0d7d6367b069f21fcbd927

Added a new tab "upgrade subsites" in manage_multi module for the multisite administrator to upgrade subsites. The upgrade status is reported as regular information message at the end of the process.

Atutor repo is also modified to extract the common upgrade functionality, which can be shared by main site and subsites upgrade, into include/install/

One left issue is that the mysql account created by ATutor version 2.1 does not have privilege to alter table which prevents the database upgrade. This issue is partially fixed by granting all privilege to mysql accounts that are created after 2.1. However, in terms of the other part of the fix that is to deal with old mysql accounts, subsite upgrade process will report an error at the discovery of insufficient privileges and guide the admins with more instructions of how to grant proper privileges. Greg is going to work on the "more instructions".
