  • Cannot upgrade to 3.8.5

    I downloaded the latest files from the members area and after uploading, I tried to do an upgrade. After running the update.php file, I log back into the admincp only to find that the upgrade didn't work and I'm still running 3.8.3.

    How can I figure out what's wrong?

    Did you run finalupgrade.php? It should run you through each update to 3.8.5
    Did you upload ALL of the 3.8.5 files and overwrite the server copy?
    That's it. If you REALLY can't say ANYTHING nice to me at all on this forum, then I am going to go insanely mad at you. I've had enough of the UNTOLD ABUSE you are all giving me and you should really be CONSIDERATE of other people.

      Yes, I uploaded all the new files from the 3.8.5 package to the server and ran the upgrade.php script which calls finalupgrade.php. The process completed without any errors. The only thing that the finalupgrade.php did was go through 5 different steps, but upgrade didn't work. Still showing 3.8.3 in admincp.

        It's actually upgrade.php. Also, you say 'the latest files', are you 100% certain they are 3.8.5?

          Are you sure you downloaded 3.8.5 because your license is shown as expired a while ago (before 3.8.5 came out).

              Sorry, I mis-spoke. I thought I downloaded 3.8.5, but it was actually 3.8.4.

              Download Latest Version 3.8.4 Patch Level 2
              However, I still have the same problem with the upgrade. The upgrade runs, but does not seem to process correctly.

              Yes, I'm sure that all the files have been uploaded correctly. The header in the uploaded files show the following:

              Code:

              Any ideas?
