Initial issue fixed, hangs on 2 files files now.

Post by Curmudgeon » Fri May 18, 2018 10:50 am

Followed the 3.1.x conversion guide to 3.2.2

Host: Blue Host
url: http://mobtalk.org
All extensions were disabled prior.
Proper folders/files deleted from host/pkg.

Following the posts "Known issues in 3.2.2" I resolved the big glaring issues in red.

See next post for current merger issues of 2 files I cant get passed to update the db.

Re: Noob upgraded 3.1.10 to 3.2.2... says I still need to upgrade my sql database

"Convert" is for converting from phpBB-2 to phpBB-3.
You are doing an Upgrade, not a convert.

I did the suggested changes in the post re: "Known issues in 3.2.2"

It fixed most of the issues with the update. I'm now stuck at this one, it doesn't merge them as it says it will. Brings me back to this screen.

A question from my ignorance as I learn, it mentions "Styles" but only style ever used with this installation was the default? subSilver

If you are following the instructions, as you said you were, then there should be no files to merge.
Step-10 of those instructions has you delete most of the old files.
Step-12 of those instructions specifically mention the Update tab, not the Convert one, and tells you to select "Update database only".
Also, subSilver style was retired years ago. The style that comes with phpBB is proSilver.

This is the update process that is telling me this. I point to the update index and click Update.
This is what that now returns, and it won't update the db.

Not doing a convert. I just called the style by the wrong name. I tried clicking on "Convert" tab, it doesn't even find it. I get the error: "Unable to access the converters directory"

You can't skip the migration, that is the upgrade. Also still says I am running the old version, 3.1.10, after the phpBB software was updated to this error.

One thing I did that may have caused this issue is when I disabled my extensions I went ahead and deleted them and their data.

Which could account for this, by my way of thinking with what I know of db interactions.

Once again, you should not be updating files, only updating the database, as Step-12 of the instructions tells you.
If you delete the /cache/production folder it should allow you to the database step.

Do you know what I failed to delete for this to occur?

I was fairly certain I deleted all folders/files but those named not to delete on the current site.

I've yet to make it out of the forum software update to update the db.

This is at the final check files, after the bbs upgrade and before you update the db, as the screenshot shows.

This is the screen prior to getting that error screen when I click.

The file I download at that page says there is a file in the ext folder but there aren't any shown in the online folder. As stated previously, I disabled and removed all extensions prior to starting the upgrade.

Having just looked up that extension I can't recall ever installing it.

I do not charge for my forum or do advertising. Years ago, even before 3.1.10 I did have a donate button. back in 2000-2002.

A friend used to do the programming but he developed leukemia and needed to deal with that a few years back. He also left before we moved to 3.1.10, which was a brand new install and I have never installed a monetizing extension.

I renamed the "ext" folder, made a new one, still the same error.
The download file still show's the same extension in the ext folder.

viglink is a standard extension that comes with phpBB-3.2.
You should not be doing the modified files step. There should be no files to compare-to, since you deleted them.

I am doing exactly as I am telling you. As my screenshots also show.

NOT what you say I am. As I have said, this entire time.

that screenshot you posted above that shows the line: " download modified files archive" shows that you are not using the correct files from phpbb to begin with.

you should not be using the auto update method/download from phpbb.

when you follow the instrutions above, you will never see that screen because it does not exist.

you need to start over, download the full new phpbb from the download page.
then unzip it on your computer.
then, remove all of the files/folders from the server except the ones mentioned in the instructions.

then remove the config.php file from thge new full download of phpbb on your computer.

then upload all the rest to your server.
then go to the install page and click on update, then on the next page click on update again.

at no time will ever see anything about merging files or downloading a modified files archive etc. etc.

I took a break after this morning.

I did it all as suggested. I'm back to updated files but the db isn't.

Files according to the forum ACP are updated to 3.2.2 but the db isn't and I have no option to update just the db. The select "Update database" and click isn't selectable.

The only update offered is the whole enchilada to update and we know how that ends up.

I'm assuming this has to do with the db issue.

The "System" tab shows 3.2.2

The "General" tab shows it as 3.1.10

I cannot select the "update database", I can only click the button at the bottom.
