  • Patch install error

    After installing the latest patch VB5 v5.0.2 Patch level 2

    I am getting this error:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined method vB5_Route_Admincp::getCanonicalQueryParameters() in /var/www/vhosts/ on line 220

    and my forum is dead..

    Any idea how to fix it. I don't have any backup..

    How did you install the patch, exactly?

    What version did you have, pre-patch?

      I ask because I see no record of you ever downloading 5.0.2 (before the patch was released) so you really shouldn't be installing the patch.

      If you had 5.0.1 you need to run a full upgrade to 5.0.2 PL1, which is what you downloaded from the Member's Area (you also downloaded the 5.0.2 Patch 1 which isn't necessary, the patch is automatically part of the full download package.)

      You then follow normal upgrade instructions (which includes making a database backup which you can still do)

      Upgrade instructions -

      But basically you download the full package (5.0.2 PL1 in this case), upload all the files/folders in the "upload" directory, overwriting the old ones, and then running the /core/upgrade.php script.

      When the upgrade is complete go back on your server and delete the entire install directory that is in sub-folder of the /core/ directory,

        I went from VB 5.0.1 to 5.0.2 Patch Level 1. I've extracted the download. It was a folder Core and I copied it over the original core folder as instructed:

          I mean these instruction:
          Updating Files On Your Server

          With Patch Level releases, the preparation work is very small - simply extract the ZIP package to your local machine! Once you've done this, you will notice that there is no upload folder. A Patch Level release only contains the files that are being fixed so will not see a complete installation package

          Before you do this you should close your forums. This will help eliminate any potential db errors as people attempt to access your forums before the upgrade is complete.

          It will also be a good idea at this point to take a backup of your site and database. While the database won't be updated with a Patch Level release, it's useful to have an up-to-date backup in any case. For more information on backing up your database, please see this section of the Online Manual.

          Connect to your FTP server using your FTP client of choice. Select the Patch Level files in the local pane and open the existing old files in the remote pane, then drag the new folders/files to the remote window.

          You will most likely be prompted by the FTP client at this point to ask if you want to overwrite the existing files. You should confirm this prompt, telling the FTP client that yes, you do want to overwrite the existing files. If the prompt gives you the option to overwrite all existing files without prompting again, use this option.

          Once the files are uploaded, that's your installation patched! There are no scripts to run and you can re-open your forums to users again.

          This is not a full upgrade. You do not need to run any upgrade scripts to complete the upgrade.
