View Full Version : Upgrade problems
October 28th, 2006, 07:26 AM
I just ran the upgrade from 2.5 to 2.6.
I uploaded all the files, then ran upgrade.php.
1) I now cannot log into admin.
2) My site now looks like this:
What did I do wrong, and how can I fix it?

It looks like to me you overwrote your config files or changed them
You can edit config-int.php with the proper paths and urls and turn on the vb3 enhanced integration. As far as login I am assuming this was working properly before upgrade since the upgrade would not affect this in any way. Make sure as stated if you did upgrade that your correct vbulletin license number is in the photopost config-inc.php file.
That should assist you

Chuck, that did it!

I jumped the gun there a little. OK, the site is back to normal in terms of looks, but the login issue is still there.
Just so you know, I uploaded all files except for config-inc.php, so that's unchanged.
I made the changes to config-intc.php which fixed the look, but not the login issue....
What could be causing the login issue?

Every time I click on admin, it takes me to a log-in page, says login successful, then takes me back to the classifieds index page. :confused:

Now I also can't login to VB admin!!!

Sorry about th multiple replies but:
Before I posted my issue, I tried resolving this myself and ran "UPDATE cp_settings SET setting='bb' WHERE id=182" that I saw in a previous post...
Maybe I messed things up??? I don't have a clue.

Well of you cant login to vb admin then your issue is with vb login. If you can login to vb admin but get a login loop trying to go to our admin then correct either your cookie prefix or vb license number are incorrect so the query above would be correct if your cookie prefix is bb

Chuck, the problem seems to be somewhat resolved... I think!
I ran UPDATE cp_settings SET setting='bb' WHERE id=182, but I changed 'bb' to ''.
(Upon double checking, it appears that my vbuletin database items do not have a bb prefix, in fact there is no prefix at all.)
My admin logins are now working from my laptop but not from my desktop!?!
Any thoughts Chuck?

Your cookie prefix is set in your vb config.php file so you can check this out but I can say with most certainty it is bb
If you can login on one computer and not another just make sure the one computer that does not work allows cookies and try clearing all cookies

Chuck, I checked my vb config.php:
// ****** TABLE PREFIX ******
// Prefix that your vBulletin tables have in the database.
$config['Database']['tableprefix'] = '';
Is there anything else that needs to be done?
October 29th, 2006, 08:05 PM
cookie prefix ;) not table prefix
October 29th, 2006, 08:09 PM
// Prefix that all vBulletin cookies will have
// Keep this short and only use numbers and letters, i.e. 1-9 and a-Z
$config['Misc']['cookieprefix'] = 'bb';
You are correct...
What do you reccomend I do?
October 29th, 2006, 08:16 PM
well your saying it works fine on your laptop which tells me the issue is with the other computer. Try as I suggested clearing all cookies on the trouble computer and try again

Yup, that did it. Thank you for help in resolving this issue Chuck.
One more quick thing... should I change it back to:
UPDATE cp_settings SET setting='bb' WHERE id=182
'bb' instead of ''?
