Re: 8.00.23 installation/7.x upgrade Thanks for the reply Falk.
Just to let you know, it turned out to be a dumb coding error by me.
So no problems with the upgrade of the database.

Re: 8.00.23 installation/7.x upgrade I can´t remember everything touched by the upgrade from the back of my head, but this sounds like an issue right here :

I deliberately did not update (drop/create) the user table, as I wanted to make sure everything worked before replacing that.


Everything need to be upgraded in an upgrade. If it was critical changed to the user db, 1 is for certain the utf8mb4 must be set in the user table.

We have had many upgrades from 7 to 8, the only other thing I can think of that it is case sensitive in passwords now, it did not use to be that.

Re: 8.00.23 installation/7.x upgrade Hi there,

I backed up my exisiting system (7.x) and restored it locally.
I then installed a clean 8.00.23 locally.

I updated the existing system (7.x) with the database upgrade (Upgrade_7.02.07_8.00.23, and copied the SECRET_KEY and SECRET_KEY_SALT into the config.php as described) that followed along with the 8.00.23 package.
All tables and fields looked fine after the upgrade and the collations looks fine as well.

I wanted to cut as many cords to the old pages, so after a few modifications to the new clean 8.00.23 system, I started exporting table by table from the v7->v8 upgraded database and into the clean 8.00.23 database.

I checked every single table for fields, types, length and so on, to make sure I would not replace (drop/create) a new table with an old table that missed fields (which meant I had to a and change a few fields here and there).
I deliberately did not update (drop/create) the user table, as I wanted to make sure everything worked before replacing that.

But... for some reason I can't log in any more. There are no error messages it just reloads the page and I'm not logged in.

Have I killed off something in some of the other tables that are vital for the login procedure (as that is the only things I've changed since it worked last)?
I still have full backups of the starting point, so I could easily revert, I just don't know what that would be.

Best regards

Re: Upgrading to 8.00.23 The developer forgot something...
Upgrade_8.00.XX_8.00.23 > administration > upgrade.php

Code
if (str_replace(".", "", $settings['version']) < "80022") {


Repalce
Code
if (str_replace(".", "", $settings['version']) < "80023") {



After editing file upgrade.php update to 8.00.23

Re: Upgrading to 8.00.23 I upgraded from 8.00.22 to 8.00.23 but the version number in the admin module still shows version 8.00.22. Did I miss something? I followed the same steps I did upgrading from 8.00.21 to 8.00.22.

Re: Upgrading from 8.00.19 - 8.00.21 Upgrading from version 8.00.21 on v8.00.22 or v8.00.23
I'm testing a new update on XAMPP. DB update from v8.00.21 to v 8.00.22 went well. But now, I can not update the database to version 8.00.23. In the admin panel, message: No updates available. I wanted to make a gradual upgrade, following the release version. My question is: Are there any differences in versions 8.00.22 and 8.00.23? Or are they the same?

Re: Upgrade from 7.02.07 to 8.00.21 to 9.03 > a Success story, but not without glitches. so one site turned out decent after 9, the other not so much... content seems to be in place after upgrades so thats that.

Re: Upgrade from 7.02.07 to 8.00.21 to 9.03 > a Success story, but not without glitches. ...updated thread title... grin

Re: Upgrade from 7.02.07 to 8.00.21 to 9.03 > a Success story, but not without glitches. I know, I am doing it, just that my FTP transfer is taking .. longish... 1200 files to go

Re: Upgrade from 7.02.07 to 8.00.21 to 9.03 > a Success story, but not without glitches. Upgrade to v9.x
Upload v9 files and run site.com/install.php in title you can see "PHP-Fusion Upgrade". That's all. V9 have built-in upgrade system in installer.

Re: Upgrade from 7.02.07 to 8.00.21 to 9.03 > a Success story, but not without glitches. OK, just did this with additional two sites. These were English only, so minor high ascii woes here.

  1. Theme changed to a default one, like Gillette
  2. Several old infusions (really old) defused.
  3. Switch PHP version from whichever > 5.6 prior to upgrade.
  4. Upgrade sequence - uploaded 8.00.21 upgrade files.
  5. Step 1 Maintenance > ok.
  6. Step 2 > ok.
  7. Step 3 alter config php > ok.
  8. Step 5 > htaccess written > ok.
  9. Step 6 > db upgrade run > no errors. I noticed it can run for 2-3 minutes, so just sit and wait for the page to refresh. WAIT for it...
  10. Sites online, admin is browsable, version states 8.0.21.
  11. Uploading rest of 8.00.21 files (You do know there is a zero KB .htaccess file in the file package?, excluding it from upload).
  12. Site switches to Atom-8, seems working.
  13. Administration is working, Forums are there, lots of theme stuff obviously more or less broken, but site basically functional.
  14. Trying to switch to higher PHP version: > 7.3 > works.
  15. RESULT > OK


9.00.3

  1. Upload of upgrade files


... wait for it... wink

Re: Admin Panel Issues Thanks Falk, I updated the database with the titles. I will have to be more careful on my upgrades I guess, although I thought that I had overwritten all of the files that were in the 8.00.21 files folder.

Re: Admin Panel Issues That is a result of missing locales, The new locales added for these items where never present during the upgrade. All files must be overwritten as explained in the readme.
I see the Blog Cats, Blog, filemanager, Email Templates. You can complete them by manually edit the entries in phpMyAdmin table admin.

Re: Admin Panel Issues The attached screen shot shows the admin panel for the Content module and as you can see, the text for some of the options is missing. This is happening on all other modules except for the Infusions module. This site has been updated from a 7.02.07 version of php-fusion and am wondering if anyone can tell me what is causing this?

Re: Upgrade from 7.02.07 to 8.00.21 to 9.03 > a Success story, but not without glitches. ok, so the original site theme and main gfx were actually pretty much inherited in to 9 with few or non important issues. I have a few edits to do but the main thing is that the site is actually looking as it should after upgrade to 8 and now upgrade to 9. Then again the theme is not very complex. I am beyond relieved. grin

Re: Upgrade from 7.02.07 to 8.00.21 to 9.03 > a Success story, but not without glitches. Going from 8 to 9. We'll just have to punch through to latest version to keep the site secure and up to date. Will post in relevant forum if anything goes kaboom.

Re: First v7 site to v8 upgrade a success! Here is some feedback from my users:
When using quick reply you can not preview a message without loosing an attachment. (old v7 bug)
Wen using quick reply you can not switch to full reply keeping your all ready typed message like with other forum software. For example you use quick reply but want to add an attachment you need to switch to reply.
Viewing an attached image in forum can only be closed with escape. The X is probably on the wrong spot. When you click X right bottom corner, very briefly the X is shown top right, but nothing happens.
