    Hello Steve,

    Apart from the missing 'Okay' message during installation I have ZERO (read: NO major...) problems running my VB3 board. What could be a negative effect of the --disable-xml setting, because I experience no problems?

    PHP Code:
    <?php
    phpinfo

    ?>
    Name it 'phpinfo.php' then upload it to your forum directory and post the URL here. This will help us troubleshoot the problem.
    Did that: http://www.xxx.nl/forum/phpinfo.php

    I dont think you should have skipped this. Take a look at http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showthread.php?t=101051 . I have been trying to get to the bottom of this for several days.

    May i ask who your hosting company is? I use hostmatters, just trying to work out if this is a server problem.

    So you skipped the steps... does your board seem ok?

    From 2.3.4. to VB3 Gold.

    Hi,

    Just upgrade from 2.3.4. to VB3 Gold. Everything went fine. One little thing like mentioned above:

    Step 37 : Import VBulletin-style.xml

    (I get the following messages : )

    Importing VBulletin-style.xml
    MASTER STYLE
    Please wait

    ------------------

    This 'please wait' message stays there. There does not appear an 'Ok'-message, although the process is finished and you can press the [next step]-button.

    Nothing major, just a little thing I thought I let you know.

    Setting up a testvb forum : some remarks

    Hi,

    I, as a more or less Admin newbie, setup a VB3 RC2 testvb forum for the first time. I went from VB 2.3.4 to VB3 RC2. Just to let you know how things went:

    Everything went fine, except for one little thing: in step 6 - Import latest language. During the Upgrade to VB3.0.0 Beta 4 stage I got the following message:

    'Importing VBulletin-language.xml
    please wait.....'

    And I waited. Waited. Waited. And waited. 15 minutes went by and I thought...well all the time there was a link saying 'next step 7/8', so I guess I can go on? Although the message 'Please Wait...' was still there, I went on regardlessy and pressed the 'next step 7/8' link. Everything seemed to go just fine.

    On all the following occasions where I got to step 6 (Beta 5 stage and further) there appeared the following text beneath the 'please wait....' message: 'Okay'. This 'Okay' did not appear on the step mentioned above.

    Don't know if this has been reported already and if it is a little 'bug' or not, but it appeared during my process: it can be a bit confusing to newbie's IMHO.

    I'll go on playing with my VB3 RC2 now....
