#1 Posted on: 2012/2/7 12:58 Upgrade Path... is there one
I have been runing xoops for many many years however for the past year and a half due to other life priorities I have had my site offline and mothballed. last month I got me a server online and restored my site and got everything working. I have taken some time and I see the xoops is all the way up to 2.5 for its version.

My qustion is this: Is there an upgrade path from my 2.0.17.1 version to the latest release? And if so what is that path? and what do I need to be aware of.... i.e. what am I going to break and is there a module compatiblility with versions list so I can make sure I am ready for any possible fallout.

Thanks!

Yes, please read page 35 of the Installation Guide

There two areas:

1) You need PHP 5.2+

2) You need to make sure that your modules are also updated and compatible with your version of PHP and XOOPS. Just give us the list of modules you have, and we can advise you if there are any problems.

Those are my current modules only one of them is not working and I know that is because of the version of PHP on the server.

#7 Posted on: 2012/2/8 9:33 Re: Upgrade Path... is there one
So I attempted the upgrade lastnight and for the most part it went really well until I got to the end where it wanted to perform the 2.4 --> 2.5 upgrade. It looked like it performed it but when I would hit finnish it would just loop back and say that it still needed to perform the upgrade. I tried it several times and could not get past that point. So I tried to bring up my site and my site came up but I couldn't login at all. It would say thank you for logging in then loop back to the main page and I was not logged in.

Long story short I rolled everything back. and my site is back up... (yes I took backups of everything like a good little admin should)

So it appiered that all the upgrades went without issue except the last one has anyone seen this before?

and last question what are some things that I should check... I have a PHP 5.3 installed and MySQL 5.5.2, this is a windows 2008 R2 server running IIS.

Thank You!

Sometimes there are problems with the "sessions" table. In the moment like the above I would recommend:

- clear the cache
- using phpMyAdmin run repair of all the tables

I assume that you followed the guide regarding Protector (removing couple of lines from mainfile.php and making sure that the "trustpath" links are correct.

I would also disable all modules (in the database), to make sure there are no conflicts between old modules and the current version of XOOPS.

Once upgraded successfully, you could then enable the modules one by one and check if they work correctly.

#9 Posted on: 2012/2/8 10:55 Re: Upgrade Path... is there one
what about the upgrade part where it kept looping on the 2.4 --> 2.5 upgrade? everytime I would click finish it would go back to the screen where it shows all the updates and the 2.4 --> 2.5 always had a red X.. Do I need to be worreid about that?

oh yes and I did follow the instructions and cleaned up the mainfile.php lines and the trusted path information was correct as well.
