I uploaded all of the files except the data and documentation folders into a new folder called photopostnew. I edited the new config files (config.inc.php and config.int.php) to add the new info including the new folders for the new versions of photopost and vBulletin as well as the new database (I made a copy of the original database to do this upgrade) I made for this installation. I ran the upgrade.php script. BUT, I only get a page with the message saying the forums are closed and the admin link and the others point back to the old installation.
Your urls and paths and such would all point to the old install and it is not suggested to upgrade like this.
You would need to overwrite everything EXCEPT the config-inc.php file on your old install and run upgrade.php on that database because essentially your old install is going to be broken or might depending on what version you just upgraded from
Your getting the closed message cause your forum is closed and your new gallery is closed as well
Okay, let me tell you what I've done this morning...
I already had uploaded all of the files for 5.21. I copied over the data folder from the original install to the new one. I was using a duplicate of my original database so as not to mess up the original in case I messed up. That is the database that I ran the upgrade script on. This morning, I went and changed the name of the folder containing the original install to photopostold and renamed the new one to photopost. All of the links then worked and all looked good until I tried to upload a photo. Here's the message I got:
Unable to move file [/tmp/php0ml4Sn] [/home2/digiscr/public_html/photopost/uploads/1/Christmas-gifts.jpg]
next your trying to use imagemagick but have not set the proper path to it on your server. In admin global options try switching the processor to gd2 and upload or edit your config and place the proper path to mogrify
Now it won't even log me into the admin panel. It shows me as logged in, but when i click on Admin, it tells me to login, then when i do, it takes me right back to the index page with the "your boards are currently closed" message...so, I can't check those things you're telling me to check because I can't get in!
One more thing...this is a problem on my vBadvanced home page, but it is with the photopost feeder module and I think it is a photopost problem, not a vBadvanced problem. Could you please take a peek at the page?
Whew! Thanks, Chuck! We really needed to have it back up by 9 PM Eastern and we just made it. I'll go back over to the vBadvanced forum and see if that block of code is somewhere in the thread for that mod. I can't be the first person to need it, huh?
One question...I wanted the middle vb3 option turned off so that the comment box is right below the image, not at the bottom of all the comments. When I turned it back off, I started getting that ugly message again...
