xx Moving forum to new website

June 29, 2017, 01:22:44 PM by pellet_newb
Is it possible to move SMF 1.1.21 to another domain/host without FTP access?  I have downloaded the SQL backup of table structures and data, what else will I need?

solved Admin accidentally deleted... can the account be re-activated?

Another admin accidentally deleted my account then re-created it with the same name but all of my settings and forum statistics are now gone.  All of my old posts say Guest under them.  Any chance my old account is salvageable?  Thanks

I was given admin rights to:

I was attempting to center and image and I broke the website!  The owner passed away back in April and we do not have FTP access, is there ANY way to remove the code I added to index.template.php with out it?

xx UPgrading from 1.1.21 HELP

June 25, 2017, 05:06:45 PM by newborndeath
hi guys, im desperately trying to upgrade my forum.

I was a dummy and didn't back up so i overwrote when uploading the large Upgrade.

Needless to say that was a horrible idea on my part, and upgrading doesn't work. I get error:
Fatal error: Function name must be a string in /home/content/s/a/i/mywebsite/html/Forum/upgrade.php on line 854

Is there a way to get my database back and install a fresh copy of the latest smf and just restore posts and users??
is there a way to fix the upgrade.php problem?

clip Upgrader cannot find crucial files

June 13, 2017, 08:36:58 PM by Catalyst
So, I'm trying to upgrade from 1.1.13 to 2.0.14 and downloaded the large upgrade package, smf_2-0-14_upgrade.zip. I used FileZilla to move everything over, overwriting the old files. But I'm getting these:

Notice: Undefined index: upgrade_overall_progress in /home/catalyst7/lemuria.catalyst-pub.com/upgrade.php on line 3511

5: Delete Upgrade

And so on. I'm also getting this:

The upgrader was unable to find some crucial files.

Please make sure you uploaded all of the files included in the package, including the Themes, Sources, and other directories.

It wasn't looking quite right so I wound up uploading the folders one by one, then the rest of the files outside of the folder. It fixed the appearance of the screen, but with the same errors. I don't know what to try from here.
