Title: Updates
Post by: Craig Delahoy on April 02, 2017, 03:17:29 PM
Hi all.

Today I decided I should upgrade the forum software. Big mistake! Seems SMF's wonderful auto-upgrade options are pretty much ALL prone to bugs of one sort or another.

Fortunately, I'd made a backup of the entire forum database beforehand, so I was eventually able to restore everything. If you've lost any info, I apologise.

Even after restoring everything, I've still seen an important file change (when it shouldn't) and causing an error. This is annoying.

Seems to be happening at least daily. Always the same file (even if I rename it), and always the same line. Please bear with me as I attempt to workaround this painful issue.

Hi all. The forums are back online. I've also tried to upgrade from the very old version of SMF that it was using. The upgrade wasn't totally successful and I only managed to move from 1.0.8 to 1.0.16. The latest stable version is actually 2.0.14, but I can't get past the one installed without error. Please let me know if you find any issues ...
