  • 2.0.1>2.2.1 upgrade no-go

    I backed up the current dB using mysqldump.

    I uploaded all files except install.php.

    I ran /upgrade11.php through upgrade14.php per the instructions.

    Everything went OK, didn't see any error messages.

    Now I cannot log in to the admin area due to my password not being recognized.

    upload the "getadmin.php" file from your "extras" folder, run it and delete it...
    I tried this and it doesn't work with the username I was using previously (before the upgrade)

        getadmin is not intended to be used with the username you lost the password to, as that account is already an admin. You should register a new account on your board and then use that with getadmin to regain admin status.

            I can't set up a new user and then run getadmin.php because I dutifully closed my bbs before doing the backup and upgrade. I didn't see anything in the upgrade instructions saying not to close the board first!

              Go into phpMyAdmin and in the settings table edit the first row and change the value to 1, then try.

                    Does it give you an error message.

                    It should do: tried and tested.

                      That won't work, you also need to update the options template in the template table.

                      Run this query:
                      SELECT * FROM template WHERE title='options';
                      Then edit the template to say $bbactive = 1; at the top.

                        I think it worked on a previous version of vbulletin.

                        Didnt know if had changed - sry.

                          I had a similar problem, where I run an upgrade to version 2.2.0 but for some reason upgrade did not work. I deleted all the uploaded files on my server and uploaded previous instalation files which restored my board, but all the user passwords were left encrypted, including mine/administrator. The only way I managed to gain access to admin is running phpMyAdmin, finding table with all the user passwords, deleting my encrypted one and changing it to a new (unencrypted) one.
                          My server does not have telnet access and support team were putting obstacles when i requested for mySQL to be backed-up.

                          Pros:
                          Salvaged all the posts incl. some very interesting ones

                          Cons:
                          Notified all users to re-register again
                          New Member?!? My 'Join Date' thinks otherwise!
                          I surf, therefore I am. I think.
