Running SMF 1.1 and 2.0

(1/2) > >>

Dorian:
Is it possible to run and use SMF 1.1 and SMF 2.0 in the same database, so that I can access the boards and topics from both versions, including to register, post, and do all that stuff to the forums?

karlbenson:
You can have multiple BUT separate installations of smf in the same database.  Just use a different table prefix.

upload the files to a different location.
eg whereas your 1.1.x forum is at http://www.yoursite.com
have a test 2.x install at a different subfolder eg http://www.yoursite.com/test

Then when installing use a different prefix.

But note, posts/members in one, cannot be used in the other.  (in other words you can't link them)

Paracelsus:
BTW, related to this subject, imagine that I have the situation you described karlbenson, using the same databse but with different tables:

If I would want someday to 'replace' 1.1.x for that 2.x test version and keep http://www.yoursite.com as the domain with all the previous information (posts, users, etc) what would I need to do?

karlbenson:
When it comes time to upgrading your 1.x forum,  you'd use the upgrade package.

Replace all your 1.x files with 2.x versions
then run the upgrade.php

Paracelsus:
Ok, I see...

Then if I would have been working on a custom theme + editing Source files and so on in that 2.x test subfolder, I would have to replace the recent 2.x upgraded files with those ones in the test subdomain (a 'simple' 2.x files for 2.x files overwrite)... is this assumption correct?
