  • XML encoding errors during VBulletin upgrade

    Hi,

    I recently upgraded my forum from 3.8.7 to 5.2.3

    During the process I got lot of errors like this:


    Unexpected Text:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="windows-1252"?>
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="windows-1252"?>
    Script: 510a1
    Step: 11


    Unexpected Text:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="windows-1252"?>
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="windows-1252"?>
    Script: final
    Step: 16


    I couldn't find any solution of this problem online. Anybody knows what is causing this error? I've tried installing again and again, nothing seems to work.
    I was able to upgrade to vB 5.2.3, ignoring the errors, but now my vBulletin Messenger doesn't work, and who knows what else is wrong with installation due to these errors during upgrade.

    Did you actually get the upgrade script to complete?

        You can try running the upgrade again...especially now 5.2.4 is out, you can try upgrading to that.

        If Messenger still doesn't work, we will need some details on what is happening (or not).

          I upgraded to 5.2.4 and as expected vBulletin Messenger still doesn't work. What information do you need?

            We need full details on the issue..."it doesn't work" doesn't tell us anything about the problem so it's impossible to suggest a solution.

            What exactly happens when you try to use Messenger? Any error messages? Does it load at all? Screenshot may help. It depends on the issue.

            I have an idea what the issue might be but we need the details.
