    You entered vBulletin files in the root of your domain? For the first error, it seems to me that both the htaccess file (try to rename it and try again), for the second error seems to me that not all vBulletin files are in the right place, check.

      The problem was about the .htaccess, on the mac, they are hidden files so they didn't go on the FTP.

      Thank you

      But I have an other problem now. I want to upgrade a forum from vb4 to vb5.
      So I have the vb4 in the www/forum directory. I made a www/vb5 directory for vb5. But when I execute www/vb5/core/install/upgrade.php, I get this error message :
      Fatal error: The requested language does not exist, reset via tools.php. in homez.744/francesa/www/vb5/core/vb/session.php on line705

      I tried to bring the tools.php in install/core and install/install but I get the same error
      And I don't know what to do, please help me !

        I recommend you install vBulletin Version 5, the root of your domain. I've done it this way, I created a new folder in the root of my domain, where I entered the folder forum 4.xx version, and I have uploaded the files in the root of the versionbe 5, then I upgraded. Another piece of advice, before you upgrade to version 5, distalla all plugins and product, otherwise you may get errors.

          Ok, so now I have vbulletin connect, but I don't have my database anymore.
          I made a dump just before the upgrade.
          How to convert the vb4.sql to a vb5.sql ?

          I see that I can "Convert your database with easy-to-use tool" but I don't find it !

          Thanks for helping

            You do not need no conversion, upload the files of version 5 and do the upgrade, in this mode, http:// domain / core / install / upgrade.php.

              So, I deleted everything, reuploaded the dump of the database, I uploaded the vb5 files. But, when I try to execute upgrade.php, after some time, I get this error :
              Action required :
              Unexpected Text

                In which step gives you this error? It seems a data processing error, it takes too much time. Watch this topic:

                  I lowered the value to 80 and then to 20, still failing.
                  I haven't increased the maximum execution time for PHP though, I'm going to try that.

                  I don't know much but it looks like there a "safe mode" that cannot be unactivated.

                  But I don't think it's the problem as I don't have "Fatal error>: Maximum execution time of 30"

                  It's the step 141/166.

                        In what version?


                        • #13
                          From 4.1 to 5.0.5

                            I understand, but I ask you, when you display version by mistake?

                              Hmm, I'm afraid I don't understand what you mean by "display version by mistake"
