View Full Version : Upgrade from 4.2.1?
June 6th, 2012, 10:47 AM
I am trying to upgrade from 4.2.1 to 5.0 but on the upgrade.php page, there is no selection for that version. The last one listed is 4.01 -> 4.1. What should I do?

Please read the documentation in the documentations folder of the downloaded code. I would suspect you are not actually running the proper upgrade script and instead are accessing some older upgrade script. The whole upgrade and install process has changed in 5.0

Thanks, got it.

Feel free to remove the install directory once done with your upgrade as the documentation states.

From the documentation:
1. In this very documentation directory set permissions on the file product_pppro.xml and source-vb4.xml to 777
I don't see these files int he documentation directory. Where are they located?

Is this what the 5.0 version is supposed to look like? Seems like there is no styling coming through at all, just text.
Also when I collapse the left hand widgets, I'm unable to open them again when clicking the down arrow button.

I went to the reeftalk classifieds. How do I get mine to look like that. It seems I'm missing something.

IMPORTANT - DO NOT SKIP
. Backup your database before doing this upgrade.
. Ensure you upload all the directories which have files that need to be uploaded to the main PhotoPost Classifieds directory.
0) Download and unzip the latest build from the Members Area.
1) Upload all files - except config-inc.php, config-int.php unless you modified them from the ZIP file - to
your server. You do not need install.php for an upgrade. You also do not need to upload header.htm or footer.htm if you modified those as well.
3) Run http://www.yoursite.com/classifieds/install/upgrade.php and depending on your version, run any necessary upgrades.
4) When done with upgrades, remove the upgrade.php file.
5. For SEO rename the HTACCESS file to .htaccess
6) You are done!
IMPORTANT - FOR VBULLETIN 4 ONLY. New plugins included in download.
In the install directory set permissions on the file product_class.xml, source-vb4.xml and source-vb42.xml files to 777
2. Go to your photopost admin panel and hit the option to generate vbulletin plugin xml. That file will download to your computer.
3. Go into your vbulletin admin panel and under plugins & products select the option to manage products. You can then use the add/import product option
and upload the xml file you downloaded to your computer called product_class.xml file. Once that is done your forum will show gallery content.
4. Thats it your done!!
Please read the CHANGELOG.TXT FILE so you know what to expect from version upgrades.
You need to generate the vb4 plugins and install them

Got it, the documentation in the files I downloaded mentioned what I put in the post above.
The marketplace shows up with the vb styles now but on the bottom of my forums, the url to the images are broken.
it shows up as usacarry.com/marketplace/data27/thumbs/cchg.jpg instead of usacarry.com/marketplace/data/27/thumbs/cchg.jpg
I've disabled the plugin for now until I can get that fixed.

Well do you have the proper full url to your classifieds data directory in admin edit integration? I assume your talking about the classifieds ad block on the forum.
June 6th, 2012, 01:47 PM
Looks like it: www.usacarry.com/marketplace/data
June 6th, 2012, 02:02 PM
That is not a full url
A full url is http://www.usacarry.com/marketplace/data/
June 6th, 2012, 02:27 PM
That is what I have. The forum wouldn't let me post it.
so I have the http: //www.usacarry.com/marketplace/data
(without the spaces, forum won't let me post links)
I tried adding the / after data but it removes it after I click save.
June 6th, 2012, 03:01 PM
Thats strange under ADMIN EDIT INTEGRATION you should be able to add a trailing slash after data
June 6th, 2012, 03:15 PM
When I add it, save, and go back to that page there is no trailing slash.
June 6th, 2012, 03:18 PM
HMM maybe a permissions issue writing files on your server.
Try editing it via ftp.
June 6th, 2012, 03:37 PM
That worked. Thanks.

Not a problem glad it is sorted
