I just upgraded from 4.86 to 5.03 using the upgrade.php script and instructions to the letter.
There were file rename 'permission' errors encountered during the db modify step of the upgrade and it always pointed to the Data 500 folder, I did as it suggested and ensured that the folder specified was chode 777, it still got the same errors but the step indicated that is was completed and to proceed so I did.
I then received several access errors as it was attempting to remove files, and from what I've seen in other threads I can just remove the files manually of I really need too, but how am I to know which files?
I also reloaded the admin.inc file to fix the "t" error, and added Michael's 2 lines of code to get my version number displayed.
Now it comes too it....
I found that immediatly after the upgrade that I had thumbnails and medium images missing all over the place and traced it down to that one data/500 folder. I chmoded the mini, medium, and thumbs folders in there and rebuilt all medium images using the admin panel. All medium images have returned.
I've tried 'Check for and create missing thumbnails' and 'Rebuild all thumbnails', and I am getting this error
Checking photo #8547: rebuilding /home/warofthe/public_html/photoforum/data/500/thumbs/38001_n_vtelen24_M.jpg from /home/warofthe/public_html/photoforum/data/500/38001_n_vtelen24_M.jpg ...
Sorry, this image type (6) is not supported yet.
This is better than the tons of permission errors I was getting but I still have many users with missing thumbs. lol
Am I at the point where I need to restore my photopost tables and run the upgrade php script again or is there an easier softer way to fix this?
My installation is here
and I have the phpinfo.php file loaded as well if you need it.
