  • [Suite] Unexpected Text: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="windows-1252"?> error when

    I was upgrading my 403 to 412 today when i got
    "Unexpected Text:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="windows-1252"?"

    When i clicked "Ok" (the only button available) i was returned to the install window with "Status: Aborted"

    When i run it again, it stops at the same place.

    The site is in cyrillic and because of that the encoding might have been touched, but i don't really remember

    the upgrade was needed because after server upgrade of the PHP to 5.3.5 (i think, the latest one) the whole site just died.

    This could be a bad file. The first thing to try is to reupload the 4.1.2 files.

    If you have the same problem after that, then this may be a server time and/or memory limit. To increase your limits edit your includes/config.php file and add these lines right under the <?php line:

    ini_set('memory_limit', -1);
    ini_set("max_execution_time", "2880");

      Thank you. Did both, still get the same.
      It's step 6/6 from Upgrading to 4.1.2 btw

        Assuming you have uploaded all the files correctly, this is a server issue. The next step is to contact your host and ask them to check the server error logs.

          Same situation.

          Yestoday vBulletin worked fine, but now I bought vbSuit and tried to install it (old DB and files were deleted before installing). All my files are in win-1251 but MySQL is on utf-8 encoding.

          Will try to fix it =/

          The installation stopped at XML process

              If you keep refreshing the page, it will carry on from where it stopped but I'd suggest you speak to your host about the memory issues
              Vote for:

              - *Admin Settable Paid Subscription Reminder Timeframe*
              -
              *PM - Add ability to reply to originator only*
              - Add Admin ability to auto-subscribe users to specific channel(s)
              - Highlight the correct navigation tab when you are on a custom page
              - "Quick Route" Interface...
              - Allow to use custom icons for individual forums

                mtfcka! I did it ! Will write the manual soon (4hrs of sex with the files) - i need relax ^^

                As I remember:
                1) Open those files from upload->install:
                • vbulletin-adminhelp.xml
                • vbulletin-grid.xml
                • vbulletin-language.xml
                • vbulletin-mobile-style.xml
                • vbulletin-mobile-style-blog.xml
                • vbulletin-mobile-style-cms.xml
                • vbulletin-settings.xml
                • vbulletin-style.xml

                2) Edit:
                a) encoding must be UTF-8, so
                replace
                from
                <?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
                to
                <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
                b) save file with UTF-8 encoding without BOM (you can use Notepad++ or EmEditor)

                3) Repeat 1) and 2) for .XML files there upload->includes->xml

                4) Open vbulletin-style.xml (upload->install)
                Replace every string
                from
                <![CDATA[@charset "UTF-8";
                to
                <![CDATA[@charset "windows-1251";
