Update News


Just spent a few hours trying to update this place. I made a backup and a spare backup on CD-Rom.
Disabled the board and uploaded all the new files.

Tried to open config.php on this PC. It refused. Vista security settings. :swear:

Opened the old config.php using FileZilla, which did work. Noted all the settings.

Edited the "new config.php to enter my own settings using the old one.

Ran the Upgrade file.

Fatal error. :swear:

Try again tomorrow. Right now I have a headache.

Well, it's good that you did it the proper way: with backups.

Keep trying. Sooner or later it'll work.

Thanks for the heads-up guys... A second attempt to update failed today, giving the same error. We're going to try the alternative update next, and if that fails, we'll have to contact XMB.

Today october 6th we plan to upgrade the goose
we first make a backup of the database (done)
I made a new database (done)
Restore the database in the new database (done)
Copied all the files into a new directory (done)
Edit the config file with the new database account (done) (redone)
Check if the copy is working (done) (redone)
everything is up, but noway DED or BBP can login (shi.)
Blast (forget to edit the full url to the goose copy)
At this moment we now have a working copy of the board.
we will upgrade that one to 1.9.5 and after that directly to 1.9.11.
First job for Bonny now is to switch of the board (done)
copied all the new files and runned the upgrade (first attempt failed)
copied all the files from the actual goose again and restored database (done)
copied all the new files into the directory (secondtime) and run the upgrade. (done)
Switch on the board by bbp
hooray it's working 1.9.5 and nothing loosed in a shadowversion.
Now we have to try upgrading into 1.9.11
Override old files into new ones
run the upgrade script
and there it was.
the foorum in the latest stable version 1.9.11.09
pfff.
Now we have to do it all over again on the life version. Preferably without the failures.
But not really
Suprisingly I needed two times again. But now we are up and running
latest mysql database version as well as the latest XMBsoftware.
It took an amazingly 6 hours, but it works .

Is it possible to get a plug-in that will handle daylight saving? It can't be that complicated.

I've searched the XMB forums. It turns out they don't have a DST feature, and it has to be done manually in the control settings. My time was off too, but I hardly ever use that information anyway.

I just corrected it.

I don't get it Bonny, how did you fix it? There's no setting that I can access to indicate daylight saving. If you do it manually, there's also the problem that different countries start and finish daylight saving at different times.

Yes! Yes! There's no XMB installer for it, so it has to be done manually. Tough luck, but since you were having such trouble with it... I didn't even notice my forum clock was an hour behind until yesterday.

's No trouble, really. You type 1 into a box into the Admin settings, which is two mouseclicks away, and with a third mouseclick you set the time.

Does that mean you would have to do it individually for each user? Although, we haven't got a huge membership have we, so I guess you wouldn't get inundated with requests and it only happens twice a year for each member.

During the night we switched on our server from PHP4 to PHP5.
This was nessecary due to an upgrade we need for our (Dutch) blog (own wordpress site). However it contains mainly my brainwaves, we needed the upgrade in PHP to be in the position to upgrade wordpress to a saver version. We have checked the goose and cannot find any error up till now , so we think the forum works great under PHP 5.
