3.0.1 Update problem

Post by Joatmon »

I get an error when it gets to the "Update files" tab.
It says "Connection failed" "Unable to change directory" When I choose the FTP method.
(Database updated quick but stuck at this point)
Seeing a lot of problems with update anyway. Any advice as to wether or not I should use this update yet anyway?
Don't understand why it can't change directory on a simple FTP.

You're not entering the correct path information.

no, the path is correct and simple.
maybe I shouldn't do this update till the probs are corrected.
I guess I'm better off for now.
Hope the database update without the rest wont screw anything up.

This is the FTP path, not the path just to your board. ie user/public_html/phpBB3, etc....
Whatever applies to you.

As stated above you need to input your whole path instead of the default one the system chooses. For example mine said the path was \Forum, but it should have been httpdocs\Forum

It will work if you correct this

I had the same problem. The default path for mine was "/IDPA_Forum" and checking the path with my ftp program showed I had to add "www/www" for a complete path of "www/www/IDPA_Forum."

I hope this helps,
Chas.

I'm pretty sure I have the right path.
If I change the path I have the error changes to : The phpBB path specified appears to be invalid.
It's in my public_html folder. If I add that I get the wrong path error.
Why would the update paths be different from the full install paths?
