Q's on upgrading
I have just upgraded vbulletin (3.0.7>3.0.12) and vbportal (>3.0.5)
Needless to say all teh changes that took place left my gallery hurting and nonfunctional. So I decided it would be best to upgrade to 1.0.1 (currently have/had RC3). In looking over the upgrade instructions and the files referenced for editing prior to the upgrade process I noticed that many if not all of the referenced change spots (index.php, udergroup.php etc) were missing form these files. Not the files themselves mind you but the lines referencing the gallery.
And the vbgallery link is also gone from admincp
Should I just edit in the changes suggested (add instead of replace) or does the absence of those phrases to begin with suggest that doing this as part of the upgrade process is going to screw the pooch?
Ought I just run the upgrade anyway or could that bork up the gallery?
I am very nervous to proceed as the last time anything like this happened (host move) many users' images were lost - not to mention I spent the last 9 hours upgrading the vbull and vbportal - and STILL have to go put all the mods back in. Since a few involved gallery access that has to wait until I get the gallery functional again.
Could anyone possibly advise me on the best course of action to take?
right now sits at:Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /includes/functions_gallery.php on line 363
If you follow a link to a users gallery you get the message about not having permission.
(last Q I swear - can i run whatever strategy is suggested with forums open and gallery closed? I DID close it back when I had the vbgallery link in admincp.)
Thanks in advance for your help!
Had a 6' ball python years ago :)
+ Monty (ofcourse haha)
Did you backup files / database ? B=0
Ok the forum updates usaly replace the forum files you edited to make the gallery work.
- upload the gallery files of the new ver.
* Upgrade - (this will add templates / phrases / DB changes)
- re apply the file edits to the forum files to make the gallery work. If all the files were updated in the forums then there will be no file edits that deal w/ the gallery.
Yell if ya get stuck
Thanks for the reply!
Just made another post-vb/vbp-upgrade backup of the db. Just to clarify since I am tattered and frayed at this point I will:
Follow the upgrade instructions to upload files and run upgrade script
Make the appropriate changes to the earlier mentioned files (since the phrases are now gone)?
(hehe we have a number of monty's on our boards! You have to check out the blood pythons though: http://www.ball-pythons.net/forums/s...33&postcount=6 you can still see the pix linked FROM the galleries oddly enough)
Again, thanks Zach!
All the gallery images are still on your site.
- Your direct links will still work to your images.
When you run the upgrade script it will reinstall the missing phrases.
Well played, Trebek!
That seems to have taken care of just about everything! Except the lack of the gallery option in admincp. Do I need to manually edit it in?
I copied the changes into modcp/index.php - it successfully added the modertor options box for vbgallery. Sweet.
But the other files (mentioned in the readme.html) already had the content deleted as it was supposed to. There is no reference to the gallery nav in admincp/index.php however.
Sorry - I was locked on the Upgrade portion of the modifications lol.
Up and running smoothly now - can't thank you enough.
