My company is looking into upgrading our XF from 1.1.3 to 1.3.4. It is my understanding that there are some schema changes, going from 1.1 to 1.3, which is the primary reason for deleting all XF data from the db. However, if there are schema changes, wouldn't a pre-upgrade db snapshot no longer be compatible with 1.3.4?
After my initial upgrade attempt, restoring forum data from a snapshot yielded a "The board is currently being upgraded. Check back later." which leads me to believe that the script failed at some point. What determines if XF is in "upgrading" state? Removing the install-lock.php file (or overriding the check for it) has no effect.
Thanks for the help,
