  • Problem with upgrading 3.8.5 to 5.x beta

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="windows-1252"?> <?xml version="1.0" encoding="windows-1252"?> <error>Could not create file system directory to hold your attachment.</error>

    Ok so after looking around it seems the issue is my attachement directy does not have proper permissions.

    When doing vb5 i created a new folder say vb5 and installed it all in there. I don't have an attachement directlry yet do i?
    I now my vb4/attachment directory does have proper permissions.

    Where should i put the new one if i need to make one /vb5/core/attachement ?

    Your 3.8.5 database will specify an attachment path. It should exist and be chmod 0777 when you run the upgrade.

        Is this directory in /core/? That is where it is going to look for it since you used ../ which means go up one directory and look for vb4. It would expect it in the /core/ directory. A better option would be to replace it with the full path from the root of the server before upgrading. Then it can be found from any location on the server.

            This is what is is looking for: ../vb4/attachment1

            Until it finds that path and it is writable, you will continue to get the error.

                Need to contact your hosting provider and have them put your site within the allowed path. Should be since /home/host is listed but for some reason it is throwing an error.

                    Log in here once: https://www.alcohol-injection.com/forum/core/admincp/

                    Go to Settings -> Options -> Style & Language Settings

                    Set Store CSS as Files to No.

                    Also make sure to upload the .htaccess file included in the /upload folder of your package.

                      Yes i do have the .htaccess file uploaded i did have to put RewriteBase /forum/ in the file for it to work.
                      Any advice on getting the admin image/style

                      thanks again for your help this late at night.

                        For your AdminCP style go to Settings -> Options -> Site Name / URL / Contact Details. Find the forum URL setting and add /core at the end of it.
