Hi Folks -
We have Photopost Pro v 5.63 running on our forum site, with vbulletin and vbadvanced.
Recently I experimented with backing up the databases and restoring it, and thus I created a hidden "maintenance copy" of the forum on my personal (private) domain.
I did not allow any members to register there, that was just my "sandbox" where I could make sure I could restore backups etc.
I received an email from Photopost, telling me that I was running an unlicensed version. I responded to that email explaining the above.
Interestingly, and coincidentally, both my "production" implementation AND my test sandbox both started having errors on the same day, with the same error.
It appeared that the pp_iponline table was corrupt, and I repaired it after searching here, but that has not fixed the problem.
I also commented out the whoonline and associated functions from the vb3.php script, but that did not work either.
Currently my gallery is not working, and I want to upgrade to 6.1.
Is this recommended, or should I go back and re-install the 5.63 version?
Can I re-install the 5.63 version without losing all of my images?
I use putty and shell access to back up and restore my databases, and I have made a server side copy of all of the data in the data directory.
I have turned off my sandbox test implementation, and here is a link to my production implementation (broken at this moment....) http://www.corvettevalley.com/gallery
Please advise how I should proceed.
(ps - I re-upped my support agreement this morning....)
Thanks and best regards -
