  • Getting Error "Notice: Undefined variable..." While Attempting V5 Connect Upgrade

    Hi,

    I have been trying to upgrade my forum from V4 to V5 and keep running into issues. I have deleted the files in the /forums/ folder as instructed and uploaded the new files. I have done this 4 times thinking it was something I was missing.

    When I run the install script at https://XXXXXXXXXXX.com/forums/core/install/upgrade.php I fill in all the needed info, then click the button and I get a page telling me to delete the makeconfig.php file and begin the upgrade but there is no button to click continue after deleting the file so after I delete the file I refresh the page and get multiple lines of this error:
    Notice: Undefined variable: vboptions in /home/XXXXXXX/public_html/forums/core/vb/database.php on line 1262

    Then at the bottom is another error at the end of the above errors:
    Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 536870912 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 32 bytes) in /home/XXXXXX/public_html/forums/core/vb/database.php on line 1263

    I have verified all the requirements for V5 are at or above the requirements, running php 5.6

    Any ideas?

    makeconfig is really for new installations.

    For an upgrade you should configure the config files manually.

    Follow these instructions and see if it works:

    1. Download the newest vB5 release from the members' area. https://members.vbulletin.com

    2. Unzip the files and go to the "upload" folder.

    3. You need to rename this file:

    htaccess.txt

    To:

    .htaccess
    (Note the 'dot' at the start)

    4. You need to rename this file:

    /config.php.bkp

    To:

    /config.php

    Then, you need to rename this file:

    /core/includes/config.php.new

    To:

    /core/includes/config.php

    Then, in that file, you need to complete the following fields:

    $config['Database']['dbname'] = 'forum';
    Change forum to whatever your database name is.

    $config['Database']['technicalemail'] = '[email protected]';
    Change the email address to your own.

    $config['MasterServer']['username'] = 'root';
    Change root to the database username

    $config['MasterServer']['password'] = '';
    Enter the database password inside the '' marks.

    All other fields should be left as default, unless your database is on a separate server, in which case this will need changing:

    $config['MasterServer']['servername'] = 'localhost';

    5. Upload all files to your server/webspace/whatever and browse to yourforumpath.com/core/install/upgrade.php.

    6. Enter your customer number and the installation will proceed.

    7. Delete the /core/install directory after the installation has finished.

      Hi, Thank you for the help!

      I followed the instructions above and still have the same error. Just to be sure I went through it again to be sure I didn't miss a step but I didn't see anything I missed.

        Woke up this morning with a head full of ideas... After completing a few of them without any luck I just shot in the dark and reset the database password, typing it in the config.php file, then copying it into the CPanel and it worked! I have no idea why the other password wasn't working, it was the same password as the 4.x forum which I did on purpose thinking I would change it after the 5.x was up and running as to not make too many changes at the same time.

        Anyway, I changed the password and that solved the problem!

        Thank you for the help!
