I try to do an install from a 2.0.10 version on my laptop to 2.0.16. I followed the instructions as stated in the "upgrading from any XOOPS ranging from 2.0.7 to (using the full package)"
At note 7, to acces the site with the browser I get the screens as if doing a new install, but I guess thats ok, but at some point when it says "checking database" I get a RED light and the sentence "tables for XOOPS2 already exists in your database".
And then it just halts.... what to do??

This is a test run, My site runs on, but I can't have the same happening there.

Thanks in advance for answers

Sounds like you copied the mainfile.php from the 2.0.16 package over your existing mainfile.php. Therefore, that mainfile.php redirects to the install.

Hopefully, you have a backup of your initial install. Then put back the mainfile.php, upload the upgrade folder, and run the upgrade as per the instructions.

I've just uploaded a site from, without a hitch. THe instructions were perfect.

Hmm, the instructions said in "2. delete htdocs/mainfile.php and htdocs/install"
Meaning the new version?? While I thought meaning the old version??
Hmm maybe I'm being blond after all....

I will try that hihi, I do have a backup (I'm not that blond)

Edit: yes it works like a charm now, Thanks again
