XF 1.1 Failed Upgrade to Beta 5


Well-known member
Well, I'm in the middle of uploading all the upgrade files again to be double sure they got uploaded proper and then I'll restore a previous DB back-up before running the upgrade script again. It just failed for me and won't run again without giving me this error page.

I may have added a check into 1.1 for this (or for something slightly different), but of course, if you upload the 1.0.4 files the code won't be there. :)

And to make matters worse I normally would do a full site backup before carrying out an upgrade (just in-case). Guess what, I didn't do it this time.

But, I do have some older backups handy. :)

As long as your data and internal_data directories weren't affected, which they shouldn't be if uploading an upgrade package, there's no need to restore files from a backup as everything else is saved in the database.

Any add-ons can just be unzipped and uploaded again.

What I'm doing and yes I'll have to double check permissions on files and folders, as my web host doesn't need those two folders to be 777, they can remain 755 and it will change permission auto itself on install for folders and files inside them to 777. I'm uploaded one level above ROOT and then I'll copy Chmod permissions over before deleting that public_html folder and renaming the one I'm uploading the same name to take it's place before uploading the upgrade files. I didn't want to risk uploading to that public_html folder again because I wasn't sure how much difference there is between the older version I uploaded by mistake (files no longer used and removed maybe) e.t.c?

I'm doing it the hard way, but I want to be double sure I don't have any folders using 777 that don't need to be. My server for some reason doesn't need you when installing forum software for the first time to Chmod anything, it does it auto itself, but unlike some servers that require "internal_data" to be 777, mine doesn't and instead leaves it at 755 but changes permission on folders and files inside it to be write-able.
