  • Problems with upgrade

    Hi, I'm performing an upgrade from 4.2.0 to vb5.

    The steps I followed are:

    Under Settings -> Options -> Site Name / URL / Contact Details I changed the URL to www.mysite.com/vb5/core
    I backed up the DB
    I restored in a new DB
    I launched upgrade.php

    I got the following error:
    Module: 500a23, Step 2 Database Error:1064
    Query:
    UPDATE vb_setting SET
    value = value |
    WHERE varname = 'defaultregoptions'

    I refreshed the page and the installer ended its tasks correctly.

    The problem is I see a page without styles and very difficult to navigate.
    It seems that the login functions correctly (I see my PMs) but if I try to access the admincp I see the same style and no admincp (screenshot attached).

    Not good. Go back again and change the URL to what it was before, dont change the URL before you upgrade to vb5, leave it like it is.
    No private support, only PM me when I ask for it. Support in the forums only.

      Sorry but it does not work.
      This time I left the URL of my test site.
      Then I followed the steps I wrote above.
      The problem remains.

        That's a known issue, if you refresh the page it will finish the upgrade.
        To be or not to be... Where the hell is the question????

          I know. The upgrade finished successfully.
          But the problems with the forums remain (see the attachment in the first post).

            Try changing the css option
            AdminCP > Settings >> Options >> Style & Language Options >> Save CSS to files

            Change that to No

              The problem was the MySQL variable 'max_allowed_packet' bytes'.

              I increased the size to 16MB and now it works.

              I continue to have problems of blank page in some cases.

                In which cases does this happen?

                  It happens in the home of the site (www.mysite.com/vb5/)
                  The other parts seems to work properly (admincp, blogs, profile, social-groups, mp).

                  If I look the HTML of the blank page:
                  --
                  <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
                  <HTML><HEAD>
                  <META http-equiv="Content-Type"
                  content="text/html; charset=windows-1252"></HEAD>
                  <BODY></BODY></HTML>
                  --

                    Hm, did you check for correct URL in the presentation config.php? Did you upload the mod_rewrite (.htacces and/or web.config) in forum root?

                      Yes. .htacces is in place and the URL is correct.

                        Turn off "Store CSS as Files".
