Re: error: mysqli_connect function does not exist, is mysqli extension installed? []

Got it! So I checked the config file and it was old! It was not the one I had. It said mysql and not mysqli. So I uploaded the new one and bam it worked fine. So I am good. Thank you to all that tried. Looks like when the tech updated the PHP somehow the config got corrupted or something. Fortunatel...

Re: error: mysqli_connect function does not exist, is mysqli extension installed? []

OK so now I can get to the install folder but when I run the update it says this: The installer detected a timeout The installer has detected a timeout, you may try to refresh the page, which may lead to data corruption. We suggest that you either increase your timeout settings or try to use the CLI.

I am currently in a chat session with tech and he says that it is enabled. How do I check?

Re: error: mysqli_connect function does not exist, is mysqli extension installed? []

Everything was working fine prior. The tech updated the php to 7.3 and then bam nothing works. I tried deleting the vendor and cache folders and uploading the complete new package like usual hoping that it would solve the problem but no luck. Same error. I'm sure that mysqli is installed and was pri...

Re: error: mysqli_connect function does not exist, is mysqli extension installed? []

OMG! I didn't even realize that. I just transposed the dot in my head and saw it as 7.1.1.4. Geez, I could have just updated and not had to go through any of this. OK so damage done.

I think they were running mysqli extension. My config had the "i" in there.

error: mysqli_connect function does not exist, is mysqli extension installed? []

So I have 5 installations on 4 different hosting companies that I have to upgrade. All were running 3.2 and I upgraded all but one to 3.3 with no problems at all. One is a big problem; Hostgator. So problem #1 was that the server only had php version 7.1.14. Not good enough so I asked them to update...

Re: Problem with "FTP - Autmatic files update"

Ok, thanks both ! It seems to be the store/install_config.php file. I deleted it and I've accomplished the update proccess (but manually this time... don't know why the automatic way failed since my server time_execution is big enough). Well, again... thank you ! 😄 Thank you. I had a somewhat simil...

Re: Problem upgrading to 3.2.7

SOLVED - In case anyone else is curious ...

Re: Problem upgrading to 3.2.7

From reading around it seems to me that all I need is to manually trigger the database update. Could it possibly be done by using MySQL and running some command?

Re: Problem upgrading to 3.2.7

Yeah, as I posted probably while you were typing, I tried that.
But now when I re-upload a new install folder and try to run it it skips directly from Introduction to Update files. It won't go back through all the steps again.

Re: Problem upgrading to 3.2.7

Wait. left out one thing. After screwing up the Auto-update I figured I would do the Full update so I deleted the vendor and cache folders and the install folder. Then I uploaded the complete thing as per the full update instructions. Went to the install folder expecting everything to be fine but it...

Problem upgrading to 3.2.7

So I usually do a full update and have no problems, but this time I thought I would be cute and try the Auto update. No good. Half way through it asked for FTP info and I panicked and just hit next. The database update never happened. So now I log in and it says that my database is not correct as in...

Re: Force https: redirect not working

I will try it right now, but before I do I just want to make sure I understand you correctly. You're saying to edit the .htaccess file that is in the main folder of the forum (not the one in my website root) and add the following lines at the top directly under RewriteEngine on RewriteCond %{HTTPS} ...
