XF 1.2 Error when trying to run the final install.

    I`m trying to upgrade from 1.1.5 to 1.2.2 so I have uninstalled all the existing add ons & then Uploaded & overwritten all the files in the 1.2.2 upgrade pack & when browsing to the install directory to complete the install I`m getting the following error

    I have redownloaded the package from the customer area & re uploaded the files again & get the same error.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    OK found that Lgpl/utf8.php didn`t copy over correctly so have manually copied that over & can now get to the "upgrade system" page. (y)

    Am now getting the "at least 1 file(s) do not appear to have the expected contents" error. I have redownloaded the upgrade package for the third time & still getting this. Is there an easy way to find which file(s) are causing the error to reappear?

    Right now it doesn't give detail in the upgrade but it's a limited list. However, there could be other ones that are incorrect -- it checks a limited number of important files related specifically to upgrading. I would have to recommend reuploading everything, ensuring that files are overwritten as necessary.

    Thanks for the reply Mike. I`ve had this second error before on a prev upgrade & redownloading the upgrade pack has fixed it but this time I`ve redownloaded the upgrade pack from the XF servers about 7 times today, uploading the entire contents to my host each time (making sure to overwrite the old files) & I`m still getting this. Should I maybe try going via an earlier version?

    OK I`ve been at this for the last 6 hours & still getting nowhere fast.

    Download upgrade, extract files, FTP files to server, install says 1 file hasnt got the expected contents, Delete zip & extracted files from hard drive, empty recycle bin, redownload upgrade, extract... you get the idea.

    I am selecting to overwrite files when reuploading too.

    Anyone else had this & can shed any light on the situation?

    Try a different FTP program.

    I recommend WinSCP.

    Well I tried with WinSCP & all files have now copied over correctly & my forum is now back in the land of the living. :D

    Many thanks from both myself & my members!
