    I would try re-downloading the ZIP file from the Members Area and re-upload all files (except install/install.php and includes/config.php.new) making sure you overwrite all files currently on your server then re-runt he upgrade script.

    Does this resolve the problem?

      The same errors occurred after transferring the files and starting the upgrade

        One of the more common reasons this may happen is if you are uploading the new files to the wrong directory. I've seen people upload files to their /forums/ directory when their forum was actually in the root directory, or vice-versa. Confirm you have uploaded the files to the correct path.

        If you can give a link to your forum we can confirm which is the correct location.

          No, he's correct. I tried doing a fresh install and I received the same thing. I copied all the files as they existed in the 4.1.9 build and that's the error I'm getting each time as well.

            Maybe there is a mis-match between the name of the real admincp directory and the name specified in the config.php file for the admincp directory (and possibly modcp as well).I would verify the directory names in config.php match the actual/uploaded directory names.

              BOP - thanks. I can login to the admincp and that works perfectly. It's the front end I can't get working in any browser on my machine, even after clearing the cache, cookies and everything else.

                No, you did not get the same thing. Just because its the same area, doesnt make it the same problem.

                This issue here is that the installer is looking for the uploaded 4.1.9 files and finding 4.1.7 files, this means they either didnt upload them correctly, or possibly something like xcache is running and the web server isnt seeing the updated files until the cache is cleared.

                  Thanks for the more detailed reply. However, I've never uploaded 4.1.7 before so I'm not sure how that's possible. Assuming an earlier version might cause a similar problem, that shouldn't happen as I uploaded these files fresh to a new directory to see my results. I also made sure that any external caching for an upgrade was cleared in the database as well just to make sure it wouldn't be that. But read below regarding what actually made the errors not appear.

                  Lynne's response actually solved the error issue. The only way was to upload the gzipped version and use command line to decompress on the server. For some reason the error didn't appear when I reloaded the old database and tried the upgrade. Unfortunately the results are the same - I can get into the admincp and make changes but the front end gives me the "webpage has a redirect loop" error. Will have to spend some more time figuring that out.

                    Lynne solved your issue (in the other thread), which is not the issue in this thread.
