I just tried upgrading from 2.6.12 to 2.6.15

I took a forum dump, set up a temporary forum, imported the data then ran the upgrade script there.

Things went wrong when I ran the upgrade script.

I created a user and database for this task and unfortunately decided to call the user "01" what happened after I ran the upgrade was that the GLOBALS.php had this line in it.

$DBHOST_USER = 01;

The leading 0 gets removed and the database was no longer accessible as user '1' didn't exist. This was working before the upgrade so I guess the upgrade script converted the string '01' to a number at some point.

A silly thing, but I thought I would mention it as it may cause other less obvious problems.

Hit another problem.

Like I said I was trying to upgrade, I did a datadump, setup a temporary local install, imported data, upgraded that install with the plan of doing a fresh install on the server and just importing the data from the local temporary install.

I only have limited access to the remote machine which is why I decided to go this roundabout way in the hope of catching any problems in a more controlled environment.

Didn't work, the local version is on a windows machine, the datadump from that doesn't import correctly on a *nix machine.

Well it mostly does but it breaks the images directory, rather than creating an 'images' directory it creates a '\images' directory.

Looking at the dumpfile I was trying to import it has 'WWW_ROOT_DISK\images' references in it when I'd guess it should have 'WWW_ROOT_DISK/images'. It looks like everywhere else '/'s are used so it just seems to be that part where its getting confused.

thanx

s/str_relace/str_replace

But obviously that fixes the problem.


I completely failed to get the cvs checkout building a working install or upgrade though. That will be down to me trying to do it on windows, redirects are probably text so the >> completely mangles the binary output.

One other thing I noticed was that the export and import seem to get confused and try to use the wrong dir for things if you installed fud to a web directory and a non web directory rather than having them both point to the same place. Probably down to trying to export from a single dir install and import into a double dir one or visa versa.

Sorry, I've been installing/importing/exporting a lot today :)

The typo was fixed and I added handlers for situations where the source forum is all in one dir and dest forum is split across many dirs. Both are part of the 2.7.1 release.
