Hi there,

for a client that runs smf 1.1.2 i created a duplicate forum on another host just to check out how the update process wil look like.
i made a back-up from the original forum and imported into the second test forum (same version 1.1.2) import was successful can see all the data thru phpMyadmin but not on the front or back at the test forum..

does anyone have a suggestion to fix this?

thanks in advance!

xx What is best way to upgrade from 1.1.11

August 10, 2016, 10:25:25 AM by besnetta
I kept up with "upgrades" from about 1.1.1 to 1.1.11 but was naughty and stopped upgrading when there was some type of controversy or struggle over control of SMF.  Is there a way to upgrade from 1.1.11 to 1.1.17 without going to 1.1.12 to 1.1.13 to ...  Love the Forum but can't put in as much time as I would like.

I have never been hacked or had any real problems even though I have several modifications and a custom script.
However, the latest warning made me nervous.
Thanks.  Very grateful to the people who wrote and maintain SMF.

August 08, 2016, 08:58:46 AM by sanderbloem
Hi there,

I have recently get the nice job to upgrade a smf forum from 1.1.20 to the latest version.
The whole upgrade process is clear running back-ups while typing this but I'm wondering if the styling/ theme will stand after a update..

This is my first time working with smf and hoping you guys have some answers
Looking forward to it.

solved Help! Cannot recover old phpmyadmin sql dump

July 28, 2016, 07:48:07 AM by w5det
Several years ago I inherited administering the website for our ham radio club because I am the "one-eyed man."  The site included a mostly unused SMF.  At the time, the most recent post was over a year old.  There was the added problem that the local hosting service they had been using was closing its doors.  Time to move.

An sql dump of the SMF database was performed and saved but wasn't restored at the time due to lack of interest.

Recently, I was told some technical information we need had been posted to the forum "for safekeeping."  Time to restore the database.

Except immediately this error occurs:
CREATE DATABASE `information_schema` DEFAULT CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci

Error occured at:2016-07-28 05:13:27
Line no.:22
Error Code: 1044 - Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' to database 'information_schema'

Is there a way to get around this error to restore the old system?   I cannot find the old root password.
