  • Upgrade from 4.1.2 to beta20 failed again

    Where is the professionalism? Don't you guys try these BETAS before pushing them out? This is like the third time this has happened. I got this error a few seconds into the upgrading process...

      That's the err I got (well the unexpected and xml lines) when trying to 'upgrade'. Hung on processing step 12 of 12. Had to do a completely fresh install. Twas a pain b/c I lost the mods I had done. Does not really matter anyway I guess... since there are still so many bugs that I am now only doing a few 'mods' with the expectation I will have to drop the dbase and delete all the files all over again (most likely several more times).

        Yes they do get tested both internally and by the Beta test team and issues like these would be picked up if it happened on a widespread basis. However, we can't legislate for every piece of FTP software or other upload tool that customers use, how they prepare the files/every individual's server setups so these errors will sometimes happen - they happened on vB3 and vB4 Gold products also.

        Download from your server (don't use your locally stored copy) and open the 'upload\core\install\vbulletin-pagetemplates.xml' file in Notepad. Then, click on File > Save As - what is the encoding in the dropdown at the bottom of that dialog box?

          I have the same problem. The encoding on the file is ISO-8859-1, I've tried changing to windows-1252 in the file (plus changing the XML to show this encoding), uploading with as a tar to the server and uncompressing directly on the server to avoid ftp problems. Nothing works it still fails.

            And what encoding is it when you follow what I've said above (not within the code, on the dialog box itself)?

              ISO-8859-1 is the encoding after I download the file from the server.

              I will do the following just to double check:

              Upload the zip file to the server, directly unzip it on the server. Copy the files in the right place. Then I will download the file with ftp in binary mode and check the encoding.

              - - - Updated - - -

              Okay after doing that the file (copied from FTP server in binary mode to desktop) is Western European (ISO-8859-1).

                I'll try that again:

                1. Download the affected file from your server to your local machine
                2. Open the file in Notepad
                3. Go to File > Save As

                What shows in the dropdown as per the attached

                  I doubt that encoding has anything to do with this. If it does, you guys must made some changes and did not tell us about them... I uploaded the file to the server as a zip, and unzip it in the server as i have done for beta10,11 and other betas that worked. It would be an oddity for the other versions to have worked using that same process and BETA 20 to fail...

                    I had a ticket the other day where some XML files had been converted to UTF-8 encoding. As soon as I uploaded a fresh copy of it, their upgrade ran fine...

                      understand Trevor...

                      To rule out corrupted files, I did a fresh installed using same folder, wiped tables in same DB, it worked like a charm.... I think you guys should release another beta as soon as this is fixed. I had to wait for about 3 weeks from beta 19, to now nonworking beta20... not fair to those of us that need to test the upgrade part of vbconnect...

                        4.2.0 PL3 to 5.0 Beta 20 Upgrade Error.

                        Since I unzipped it on the server itself and didn't upload on it's own with an FTP client, the file has not been touched encoding wise by the FTP client.

                        But to test I will convert it to ANSI and windows EOL and re-test. I'm not using notepad, my editor is seeing the file encoding in the XML and changing it as such to ISO-8859-1, but since ANSI is a superset of ISO-8859-1 I'd say it's not UTF-8 so there isn't any hidden characters in there.

                        - - - Updated - - -

                        Looking at it, I'm going from 4.2.0 PL3. The widgets and widgetinstance tables are both empty still after the failure.

                        To upgrade, I'm taking a copy of the live database - I download the SQL in gz format from phpmyadmin and then import that back into the new a database and upgrading that to vb5.

                        Here's the log in Upgrade Progress.
