I've been trying for almost a week now and no progress.
I was running PP 4.86 + vB
Recently upgraded to vB
3.5.0 GOLD and am now trying to upgrade to PP 5.21 My method:
Old live PP install was in /photos
on my domain. I unzipped the 5.21 zip file into a directory called /photos2/
. Edited the config-inc and config.int files with my correct data and paths that point to /photos2
. I also point it to a new DB which is a copy of my old 4.86 DB so that I dont have to touch the live copy. I then copy over the /data
folders into /photos2
and chmod -R 777
both of them. I run the upgrade script starting at the 4.85/4.86 point and everything goes through seemingly fine except for some "already existing" errors on the 4.85 step 1 which seems to be common.
The rest of the install seems to go fine and I can login to PP afterwards, but all the images and thumbs are broken. They point to images with apparently prepended #'s on them, which arent there. So I'm assuming one of the upgrade steps renames the files in /data? This doenst make sense because its been properly chmodded to 777 recursively.
BTW- I've tried this numerous times, all with fresh DB's and fresh install directories. Just so that steps were not duplicated.
One question actually -- in Step 2 for the 4.86 upgrade, when it renames the DATA directory... in the next page shoud it verbosely list the files that have been renamed? Or not?
I'm out of ideas. Please help!
