Remove old extensions from ACP tabs

Post by dasvolks »

Hey folks. It's been so long since I checked in here, I forgot my old account's password, and no longer have the email address! But I used to post as obnoxiousblue. I run a VW restoration board at www.dasvolks.com

I recently upgraded to 3.3.8, and there are remnants of old mods in my ACP that I'd like to be rid of.
In my tabs on the ACP I have a tab "Extensions" with three extensions within - ACP_CAT_CONTACT, ACP_ANNOUNCEMENTS_CENTRE, and PHPBB_GALLERY.
I have another tab ACP_CAT_MODS which produces the following error:

Code: Select all

General Error
Cannot find module ./../includes/acp/acp_mods.php

BACKTRACE

FILE: (not given by php)
LINE: (not given by php)
CALL: msg_handler()

FILE: [ROOT]/includes/functions_module.php
LINE: 573
CALL: trigger_error()

FILE: [ROOT]/adm/index.php
LINE: 81
CALL: p_master->load_active()
When I did my upgrade, I did by FTP and replaced almost all of the files with the exception of the config, ext/, images/, files/, and store/ - so I don't think that any of the mods will actually work any longer and would like to remove them.

Is there anyone that can tell how?

Thanks!

Start over and follow the procedure described in Upgrading from 3.0 to 3.3
specifically 5 Remove all MOD-related changes from the database. The Support Toolkit's Database Cleaner can be used for this.

Thanks warmweer.
I had used the Supprot Tool Kit when upgrading and it did not seem to have any effect.
I'm reviewing the Support Tool Kit again now and it says
The Support Toolkit is unsuitable for phpBB 3.1.x and 3.2.x, at this time, and cannot be successfully installed nor run.
I am already on 3.3.8, so I don't believe I can use this now.
Do you suggest I go back to an older version of phpBB, and then install the took kit, run the cleaner again and then upgrade?

Yes, restore your 3.0.14 backup (can de done on personal webserver), use the STK and then redo the upgrade. It's the safest way..
Take note that you'll need to use a PHP version suited for phpBB 3.0.14 and the STK.
When the database is sanitised, switch PHP version and do the upgrade and then just upload the files and import the upgraded database.

That account is still active, you should contact a member of the Community Team, preferably the group leader, who can reset your credentials.

Awesome! I'll do that right now, thank you!
