xx Forum upgrade from 1.1.19 to 2.0.14

Yesterday at 03:37:45 AM by TexRash
I am trying to do a SMF forum upgrade from version 1.1.19 to 2.0.14

The forum was working well until I uploaded the patch for an upgrade.

Now I get the error "Fatal error: Function name must be a string in /home/www/mysub.forum.com/Sources/Load.php on line 133"

The forum in a sub domain and can only be accessed without the "www".

I already have a 301 redirect from www to non www in htaccess. This used to work before the upgrade.

clip Admin page options blank 1.1.15

August 20, 2017, 01:58:38 PM by bryanc
Hello. Taking over as admin for a 10+ year old SMF forum running 1.1.15. Somewhere along the way after an update the admin page has gone blank. The forum is operating ok but cannot update software or change any options. I'm trying to update and move the forum to a new host but it seems the old admin was unable to fix the admin page issue. I am very new to the admin thing. Couple questions. I have read the forum needs to updated to the current 1.1.21 before I can update to version 2.x. Is there any way to move the database and integrate it with 2.x without use of the admin panel? Is this a known issue? I do not have access to the host site as the previous admin has multiple sites running on the server and, understandably, prefers that I stay off of it. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

xx Server host update incompatable with v1.1.11 in 2011

August 11, 2017, 05:40:02 AM by gethralkin
So, the title pretty much explains my problem. The hosting had an update which conflicted with the forum version I had last, and that caused this error to display when trying to access the forum:

Connection Problems
Sorry, SMF was unable to connect to the database. This may be caused by the server being busy. Please try again later.

So, I have been stuck since then, but was - at the time - not able to address this as I was attending university and bogged down with my studies.

Now that I have more time and resources, I would like to repair my forum side of my website, as it's a part of a certain franchise's legacy that I was allowed to retain from a previous license during the distribution of the product that it promoted.

The front end of the site has a few issues of its own that I need to get fixed, but I would like to get the forum back up and running at the very least.

I am going to contact the server host again this week to find out what my options are, but if anyone has any ideas about version compatability fixes after the fact, I am open to suggestions.

I understand that I probably need to offer up more details about the situation so that an informed response can be given, so I will be happy to post whatever needed barring sensitive information.

xx Upgrade from 1.1.21 to 2.0.11 makes my website crash

August 05, 2017, 12:12:00 PM by LexSurax
Hey guys,
I'm curious if you can help me with this problem.

We've got our current website completely intergrated with smf 2.1.11
The problem is that if we try to upgrade to smf 2.x.x ,the main page, (which uses smf data) won't even load.
we've got a testwebsite to try to come up with solutions, but none so far has worked.

To be clear, the guy who made that site to work as it is, isn't availible anymore, and i'm a bit of a n00b on this.
But i'll do my best to answer all questions you might have concerning this problem.

xx Question regarding email addresses and old email addresses?

Quick question regarding what info admins can see, does smf 1.1.9 save old email addresses users have used when they update to a new email address?
