Re: 2.06 to 2.07

Ok, I'm back to 2.0.6. Is there an EASY way to upgrade without F***ing up my site?

Re: 2.06 to 2.07

Now i'm fearing the worst. Look at www.worldofetilicia.com/

Its still looking for the /install bit! I've edited the mainfile and overwritten it but still nothing!

HeLp!

Re: 2.06 to 2.07

I unpacked the update and followed the first posters instructions of uploading all files in the /html directory. That then asked me to do a new install.

At the moment I am trying to get back to using my old database as that is the one that contains all of the information I need.

So...

Do I edit the mainfile.php to point to the database, username and password I used before? And if so, do I need to CHMOD anything to get the site to show the changes?

Will I also need to go back to 2.0.6 if 2.0.7 is just a bug fix (seeing as I had to do a fresh install after it buggered up)

As posted in the previous, http://www.worldofetilicia.com/ is what my site looks like now.

Re: 2.06 to 2.07

The update wasn't found in the package I downloaded last night.

Anywho, do I edit the mainfile.php or mainfile.dist.php? I go to my site and get this at the moment;

http://www.worldofetilicia.com/install/index.php

Forbidden
You don't have permission to access /install/index.php on this server.

Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

So is there something I haven't edited properly?

Re: 2.06 to 2.07

Ever felt like you're banging your head against a brick wall?

There is NO UPDATE PATCH to use! If there was, I would've used it! The only hint of an upgrade I found was /install/sql/upgrade/ which just contains an SQL dump. No patch.

Just unarchive the update package, then copy the files from the html/ folder over your previous version ones.

Then logon to your site, go to the admin/modules page. And click the "update" graphical button on the system module line.

That's it...

Again, I bring your attention to skalpa's post.

That is what I did and it completely f***ed up my site! If its such a hard ship to get clear answers from the main guys on the project, what chance DO I HAVE.

I went ahead with the install as there was nothing else I could do. Will deleting the new tables I made with the xoops2 prefix help?

Re: 2.06 to 2.07

// Table Prefix
// This prefix will be added to all new tables created to avoid name conflict in the database. If you are unsure, just use the default 'xoops'.
define('XOOPS_DB_PREFIX', 'xoops');

// Database Hostname
// Hostname of the database server. If you are unsure, 'localhost' works in most cases.
define('XOOPS_DB_HOST', 'localhost');

Changed it as shown above and still don't have my site back. Maybe if there were some instructions in the upgrade file, I would've followed them, hence why I asked where the usual php file to upgrade was
