XF 1.4 Undefined index: password_date


Well-known member
I was just attempting to upgrade my test site to XF 1.4. After copying the files, I pointed my browser to admincp.php and I got this error:

Server Error

Undefined index: password_date

XenForo_Application::handlePhpError() in XenForo/Session.php at line 339
XenForo_Session::getPublicSession() in XenForo/ControllerAdmin/Login.php at line 7
XenForo_ControllerAdmin_Login->actionForm() in XenForo/FrontController.php at line 347
XenForo_FrontController->dispatch() in XenForo/FrontController.php at line 134
XenForo_FrontController->run() in [...redacted...]/forum/admin.php at line 13
I disabled the add-ons by adding the line "$config['enableListeners'] = false;" to config.php, but that didn't help.

It's probably my fault somehow, but I can't quite figure out how.

The test site was 1.3.4 before I tried to upgrade. The upgrade zip file contained the upgrade package only. Should I have chosen to download the full package?

Thanks in advance for any ideas you might have.

Ah, thanks Mike! I was used to seeing a link or something (I think!) on the adminCP login page. I pointed my browser to /install instead, and was able to run the upgrade there. Worked perfectly.
