Code signing 2nd version

I'm using WebWorks and trying to code sign a newer verson of my app. I keep getting the error "Request failed because this file has been previously signed."


this page says:



  1. In the your_project_name-app.xml file, increment the value in the versionNumber element.
  2. Repackage your application.

I dont' think this applies to WebWorks apps.


Where does this go in the config.xml file?

Re: Code signing 2nd version

Each time you sign your application you must increase your -buildId when you call the bbwp command line.
