  • Trouble installing AND upgrading

    I am not one of the people that criticize what you guys do but version 5 is a hot mess. 2 config files? I have been doing forums for 12 + years. First I could not install the software, next I tried to upgrade my test forum thinking it would be easier, it upgraded it and now it is inaccessable. So, I tried again to do an install using the create config mod I downloaded. Still can't get this installed. There is some issue with the config files as for some reason they can't be read. Not sure what my options are now.

    What are the specific errors you're running into? This is beta software and should not be run on production sites.

      After the upgrade on my vb4 test site I get this error message

      Fatal error: Class 'vB' not found in /home/******/public_html/charismaticcentral/forumtest/includes/api/interface/collapsed.php on line 17


      When trying to install a fresh install I get this error

      Couldn't read config file config.php

      I know not to update a live site, I have been doing this for quite awhile

        The core path is incorrect in your /config.php.

        See this thread for a script that will tell you the correct value:

                You have a UTF8 bom, or other character before the start of the config.php file, so before

                    A BOM does appear on the screen. If you save these files as UTF-8, it places hidden characters in the file that will cause the errors you're seeing.

                    Looking at the file won't help unless you're using an Editor that shows hidden files like notepad++. Always make sure any file you edit is stored as ANSI or ASCII text.

                        What does the core_url line say in your /config.php file?

                          I don't see a line that is core_url but here are a couple


                          This is the url and web based path to your core directory
                          $config['baseurl_core'] = 'http://www.evangelizeamerica.org/forumtest/core';

                          // This setting is for where your vbulletin core folder is
                          $config['core_path'] = '/home/******/public_html/evangelizeamerica.org';

                          - - - Updated - - -

                          If something were wrong, it would not have installed though.

                            Check for core_path. It missing the /core part at the end.

                            It seems it should be:

                            PHP Code:
                            $config['core_path'] = '/home/eaforums/public_html/evangelizeamerica.org/forumtest/core'
