    When I click on a users name I now get in the member card popup:

    This upgrade has been anything but nice...

    I had to revert the DB and files to the backup versions, though even after I did this, it kept telling me an upgrade was in progress, even though I backed up all the files and DB before I started the process.

    Then after only uploading the beta3 files, it would tell me that it was already running beta3, even though I restored a beta1 DB.

    Now I have the above errors after rebuilding master data...

    Everything to do with user profiles is actually busted, giving out similar errors.

    Don't worry.... got it sorted out myself.

    I've noticed that the previous betas disappear from the downloads area when new versions come out. Might be a good idea to at least download each beta version in case something strange happens and you need the intermediate beta version for some reason (upgrade in 2 steps instead of skipping a step).
    EQnoble and Anthony Parsons like this.

    I don't delete anything that was ever important for these type of random reasons :) Gotta love storage space.

    Thanks for the tip Dean I wouldn't have even thought of that seeing that I went in succession as they were released.

    This is interesting, I upgraded my forum today and had no issues. Everything is running fine. Is it to do with any add ons by any chance? I am running vanilla version.

    This would indicate that the upgrade script did not run correctly, as that ip field was added in the beta 2 -> beta 3 upgrade script, and all sorts of things will break without it being present.

    Thanks Kier... that's what I figured, but got it to eventually all run again from a backup.

    VincentU, did you upgrade from B1 directly to B4? All changes from B2 and B3 should have been applied by B4's upgrade script.
  11. Vincent

    Vincent Well-Known Member

    B1 -> B2 -> B3 -> B4

    That's how I've done it :) Yet, it's only in B4 that it came up.
    Should I do an overwrite of all the B4 files (not the upgrade package)?

    If you do that then be aware that you need to preserve the following directories and files from your current install:

    You could just upload the upgrade package as that doesn't include the following:

    Then just make sure you replace the config.php with your own.
  13. Vincent

    Vincent Well-Known Member

    Well, I have already uploaded the B4 package, so it should be fine. I think the error is at my XenForo Installation :(
  14. Vincent

    Vincent Well-Known Member

    Mind telling what you did so other people can do it too? :)

    You can run this query:
    I can only guess that this happens if the necessary upgrade script hasn't been uploaded at the correct time. I will have to see if I can reproduce it though.
  16. Vincent

    Vincent Well-Known Member

    I'll try it soon. Installing phpMyAdmin at the moment.
    Anyhow, I downloaded the upgrade script, overwrited all files with that and started the upgrade system, than I've let it do it's things and when finished, the error was at the member profile. That's what I've done :)
  17. Vincent

    Vincent Well-Known Member

    It works, thanks :)

    Is this definitely the case? I'm about to upgrade to Beta 5, but am on Beta 3. I am unable to download 4 (I do wish all would be available in the drop down). Traditionally I'd be more comfortable doing it in steps, which is why I'd like to verify.

  19. Mike

    Mike XenForo Developer Staff Member

    I tested an upgrade from beta 2 to beta 5 without any issues.
  20. Vincent

    Vincent Well-Known Member

    Ah, no, that was not the problem, when I had that error I went for b3 to b4, so matey, just start your upgrade already :)
