  • 3.8.8 to 4.2.2 errors

    I had errors upgrading to 5.1.5 so I started over from a backup of the original database and tried upgrading to 4.2.2. When I login to the new forums it displays PHP code instead of my username (see pic). When I do go to the forums the layout is all skewed to the right (see pic) and last if I try and access any of the forums listed, it returns a blank white page. Any clue what may have gone wrong during the upgrade?

      This was a clean install using all new files from the 4.2.2 upload folder. I don't trust doing an install cold against a live site. I take a copy of the database and do the upgrade in a development folder first for reasons just like this.

        okey but why i still see the Default style for vB3 also the language for vB3 ?

        are you make sure about do the full upgrade ?

        delete this folder and database and try again with new fresh files and database

        also dont forget to make sure to update default style , language to vB4 Files

          There is no need to move your site to a different folder to do an upgrade, just as always make a full backup so you can restore if anything goes wrong.

          You would need to update the URL in admincp but like I said don't bother just upgrade the live site after making backup.
