Ok where do I start.... I was running X1.25 and went to upgrade last night to v1.30 the usual way. I ftp'd the files and ran the install. It advised me I had server disabled core .php functions. I pressed on regardless as Im on a shared hosting and there wasnt anything I could do. During the install I was getting 504 time outs. By pressing F5 it was able to batter on past them until the very end I get.... Spoiler: Server Error Zend Db_Statement etc... Server Error Mysqli prepare error: Unknown column 'display_order' in 'order clause' Zend_Db_Statement_Mysqli->_prepare() in Zend/Db/Statement.php at line 115 Zend_Db_Statement->__construct() in Zend/Db/Adapter/Mysqli.php at line 381 Zend_Db_Adapter_Mysqli->prepare() in Zend/Db/Adapter/Abstract.php at line 478 Zend_Db_Adapter_Abstract->query() in XenForo/Model.php at line 219 XenForo_Model->fetchAllKeyed() in XenForo/Model/Smilie.php at line 87 XenForo_Model_Smilie->getAllSmiliesForCache() in XenForo/Model/Smilie.php at line 113 XenForo_Model_Smilie->rebuildSmilieCache() in XenForo/Deferred/ImportMasterData.php at line 40 XenForo_Deferred_ImportMasterData->execute() in XenForo/Deferred/Atomic.php at line 66 XenForo_Deferred_Atomic->execute() in XenForo/Model/Deferred.php at line 256 XenForo_Model_Deferred->runDeferred() in XenForo/Model/Deferred.php at line 390 XenForo_Model_Deferred->_runInternal() in XenForo/Model/Deferred.php at line 316 XenForo_Model_Deferred->runByUniqueKey() in XenForo/Install/Controller/Abstract.php at line 34 XenForo_Install_Controller_Abstract->_manualDeferredRunner() in XenForo/Install/Controller/Upgrade.php at line 221 XenForo_Install_Controller_Upgrade->actionRunDeferred() in XenForo/FrontController.php at line 347 XenForo_FrontController->dispatch() in XenForo/FrontController.php at line 134 XenForo_FrontController->run() in /home/linweb24/t/thefewgoodmen.com-1068658282/user/htdocs/thefgmforum/install/index.php at line 18 Upon researching this error on Xenforo I find it has to do with a Smiley Manager... so I delete all the files from said Smiley Manager and re-run the install. Same error. So at this point I can no longer get into Admin CP to delete the add on so decide to reinstall v1.25 to roll it back and delete it from there. I also added the ignore add on code to the config file. Now when I rolled back to 1.25 and installed it it throws up this error about data and internal data being writeable. I 777'd the files and sub directories etc and it still throws up the error. So I decide to try and install v1.3 again. And this is where I have ground to a halt. I have no idea what has happened. www.thefewgoodmen.com points to this... http://www.thefewgoodmen.com/install/index.php?install/ www.thefewgoodmen.com/home goes to the proper home page. Does anyone have any ideas at all about this? Where do I start to unscramble this mess.
