    Hi Steve

    You were dead right (you guys always are) I had a file missing somewhere. I have now managed to upgrade ok.

    How big a deal is it to go to 3.5 and is it worth it ?

    Thanks for sorting me out

    You edit it with your database info as per the instructions:

    One question

    in the upgrade doc it says this ...

    "
    Upload all files from the 'upload/' folder in the zip, with the exception of 'install/install.php'. Then open the 'upload/includes/' folder. In this you will find config.php.new. You should rename this to config.php and then open it in a text editor."

    It doesnt say what to do once you open it in a text editor or if to upload it ?

    Am I being stupid ?

    PS - why does this message not appear in the 'new posts' search ?

    This usually means you did not upload all the 3.0.12 files.

    OK

    I edited the config.php file and added the correct info where required. Now I am back to the first problem. I don't get any upgrade prompts I get taken to the admin suite ?????

    If I try and access the board I get this ...

    "Warning: main(./global.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/sites/site2/web/vb/index.php on line 56

    Fatal error: main(): Failed opening required './global.php' (include_path='.:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/sites/site2/web/vb/index.php on line 56
    "

    OH NOOOO !!!

    I just thought I would re FTP the install directory and now when I try and run upgrade.php I get ...

    "

    Am I really in trouble ?

    Upgrading from 3.0.5 to 3.0.12 gone VERY wrong ?

    Hi Guys

    Just getting ready to enter PANIC MODE

    Trying to upgrade from 3.0.5 to 3.0.12

    I think I did what the instructions said but when I try and run www.blahblah/install/upgrade.php I just get dumped into my admin area and the forums are broken

    I am starting to get VERY scared - what did I do wrong ?
