Greetings.

I'm trying to upgrade my fudforum without experiencing message loss. I have uploaded the upgrade script, but it appears that my fudforum is too old. Do you have any advice for me?

This is the error message that appears when you access the php upgrade script. I hasten to say that, to me, it seems like the thing has some real issues!
========================

FUDforum $val) { if (!is_array($val)) { $in[$k][$key] = stripslashes($val); continue; } $in[] =& $in[$k][$key]; } } unset($in); if (!empty($_FILES)) { foreach ($_FILES as $k => $v) { $_FILES[$k]['name'] = stripslashes((string)$v['name']); } } } $GLOBALS['PAGE_TIME'] = gettimeofday(); define('__request_timestamp__', $GLOBALS['PAGE_TIME']['sec']); mt_srand($GLOBALS['PAGE_TIME']['usec']); // Load and initialize the plugin handler if ($GLOBALS['FUD_OPT_3'] & 4194304) { // Plugins enabled include_once $GLOBALS['INCLUDE'] .

From what version are you upgrading?
Did you upload the upgrade.php script in binary mode?

I don't know what version I have, but I downloaded it last summer. Almost one year ago (august). I think I need to upgrade to 3.0 first. I'll do that now.

Hi. I'm doing a good job on the upgrade (sort of), but I ran into an ambiguous sort of situation.

When I upgraded to 3.0, the consistency checker window didn't open. So I clicked the link. It asked to to sign in. But, like a fool, I had forgotten that I only allowed sign-ins every 24 hours. And I had logged out earlier. (I had put a 24-hour restriction on log-ins to discourage those flies that hang around the login page). So, anyway, I was not able to complete the consistency checker.

One of the things that I noticed about my forum is that the topic headers were all gone. Just the messages are there.

When I am able to log back in, should I re-run the upgrade to 3.0, and go through the consistency checker? Will that make the headers come back?

(I backed up the thing in case something went wrong.)

Regards and thanks.

You can just run the consistency checker whenever you are ready and it should fix everything up for you.

... thanks for all of your help!

I installed two new message boards yesterday, and finished upgrading my old one to the current version.

Everything worked smoothly after I figured out how to do it!
