View Full Version : Upgrade of Forum crashed PP
January 13th, 2006, 12:10 PM
Some time ago I paid IPB to upgrade our Forum. After they finished the PP Gallery was corrupted. I hastely replaced the Forum php files with the older version and used the backed up database (common to both) to restore PP. Now, almost one year later, I have successfully upgraded the Gallery from v4.8.2 to v5.2.1 and I am about to try to update the IPB v1.1.2 to v2.1.4. Is there any reason why I might be unsuccessful again? Is there a 'fix' that will help achieve a successful upgrade?

Hello when you update to a different forum type of that nature you would need to change your photopost to integrate with it. Invisionboard 2 is a completely different code branch and we integrate with that one as well. This thread should assist you

Thank you for the php file. I will execute it when the Forum is upgraded.
You stated in your attachment "This FAQ assumes your integration with Invisionboard 1.3 was correct as far as cookies. The integration file is brand new and the only change needed is to point your install to using the new one".
#1 - The Forum and PP cookie settings are identical:
Cookie Path: /
Cookie Domain: .calclub.net
Is this sufficient to satisy the cookie requirement?
#2 - Is the integration file you refer to the one you just sent named upgradeib.txt? What pointing question will it ask me in the process of executing it?

The file in that attachment does one thing.
It runs a query against your settings table to change the integration type from ib to ib2
UPDATE pp_settings SET setting='ib2' WHERE id=41

Understand. What about the Cookie setting?

As long as your cookies match you should be fine
cookie path of / and cookie domain of .domain.com is great for both
