What details need to be changed prior to the upgrade? And how exactly would I have done that? I believe that I made all the necessary changes before the upgrade based on other topics that had instructions written out.
I'm sorry but I don't have a clue what you are talking about, or what the process of this is or would look like. Without doing that (which I'm assuming I didn't do, as I don't have a clue as to what any of that means) - how would it affect my live site? I haven't noticed anything going wrong with it.....
Anyone know of a place to download only the V4 skin? Or could someone attach a file here for me to download? I can't install another one and do it myself, as it would have to be in the same directory as the current demo because of the licenses.
So, I attempted to upgrade a demo site (3.x) to Beta 5a. I did this by duplicating my live database. Uploading all 5a files into a new folder on my server. Copy/pasted the public and upload folder there as well. Then copied the config file. Edited the config file to point to the duplicated server. Ran the upgrader. When I finished, I've ended up with the following: http://profootballspot.com/spotv2 - Any clue what is going on here, or where I went wrong?
So when you do a fresh install, and type all the database information (name, user, pass, etc) it doesn't put that into the config file for you? Because that's what I'm doing.... It's just not showing anything.
I've deleted it and started over so I don't have the error messages on hand. I can get them. Wanted to make sure there wasn't something I needed to do first. When I made a copy of the database, I did it through phpmyadmin. Then ran a normal install, but used the new database I had just made. So I didn't copy/change any config files or anything else. I just installed the board like you normally would, but installed it on a database that had ton of stuff in it already. Should I try it again, and just post the errors I run into?
I thought this would be possible, but I'm running into some errors. So I'm starting over and trying again.... maybe some of you guys can help. Basically, I want to run a test site with the new Forums and Pages - but I want to be testing it with a ton of content on my live site. ____ I went in and made a duplicate of my live IPB board database. Renamed it and such. Then I uploaded all the files for IPB4. Installed IPB 4 and used the new database information for the install. I was hoping to at least see all the registered members and posts, but I'm not seeing anything except a handful of errors. What do I need to to? (outside of upgrading my live site, which I don't want to do for obvious reasons)
Thanks for the answer. That's unreal frustrating to me. Most everyone who uses IP.Pages at all is going to have that set as their default page. Surely there's a better solution than the custom URLs. I can't imagine forums/forum/ being good in search engines either.
