    Yes I have copies dating back quite awhile, I'm just working on the test server.

    Would you like a copy of the 4.2.3 database, or is there something you want me to try again?

      Just a copy of the database before you upgraded.
      The error suggests some bad serialized data somewhere, which would be beyond our control, but id like to be sure if I can.

        Code:

          Again, most of those are just warnings of potentially bad serialized data, but without any context as to where and when, there is nothing more I can look at.

          The last error (syntax) is more interesting, are you sure you are running at least php 5.5 ?

            this was the result of attempting the upgrade script thru the browser...i was assuming it was running php5.6 but perhaps he still had the 5.3 i will check into it thank you

            If you have a copy of the database (before upgrade) that would be handy.

              From what I recall, I think it was just one broken stylevar.

              If you want to be sure, the fix it just to add 1 line in class_core.php

              Find these two lines (around 5698);
              PHP Code:
              $index 0;
              $strlen strlen($string); 

              and change them to this ;
              PHP Code:
              $index 0;
              $string trim($string);
              $strlen strlen($string); 

              This adds the line in the middle of the original two.

                    After clicking the link to download vB4, you will see a radio button "More Download Options" - check this and a dropdown will become available. You can download 4.2.5 from this list.

                      Just a note / reminder.

                      The current 4.2.5 version is Beta 1, the next version (Beta 2) is due to be released in the next two weeks.

                        Thank you for your work so far, I am considering to start using this Beta 1 (or Beta 2) for a production forum soon.
                        Is there any way we can get email notifications for all these new RC and Alpha/Beta releases?

                              If you downloaded Beta 2 before this post then please re-download it again.
                              I found a small change that didnt get merged properly, so I have updated the build files.

                              (The affected file was class_core.php)
