SMF 1.0.8 Released
« on: August 19, 2006, 06:19:38 PM »
Simple Machines is happy to release a new update to Simple Machines 1.0.  This update will fix a vulnerability that was recently discovered in PHP (malfunctioning zend_hash_del_key_or_index() function). Also included are a small number of bug fixes found since 1.0.7. The vulnerability exists in PHP versions below 4.4.3 and 5.1.4.

We encourage everyone to upgrade their forum to 1.0.8 and all server administrators to upgrade their PHP to at least 4.4.3 or 5.1.4.

As this is a critical release, you can easily upgrade by one of the following ways:
  • Use the package manager in your administration center - one click, and you're done.
  • Download the update archive file, and upload all of the files from it.
  • Download the modification file attached to this message, and manually modify the files according to it.

SMF 1.1 Users
This security update is included in the public release of SMF 1.1 RC3.  Please see SMF 1.1 Release Candidate 3 is available! for further details.

Mods
We believe this update may cause some mods to stop working.  As always please use caution when using any mods.

There are 4 pages of comments in RC3 release announcement, but not a single one here :) Don't worry development team, we are also proud of you for releasing 1.0.8 :) (Although I don't use 1.0 series.)

1.0.8 is not to be compared with 1.1 RC2, because 1.0.8 is the latest stable and final version of SMF. 1.1 is a newer SMF version that is still in development, but expected to be released as final soon.

Heh, I think we've never released three versions (1.0.8, 1.1 RC2-2, and 1.1 RC3) as well as a Charter Member update package at the same time before. So it's kinda hard for users too to spread their attention. Anyways, I'm glad they respond to the 1.1 RC3 topic more. After all, that's sort of our flagship ;)

Try downloading the package from the first message and uploading it to the Packages directory of your SMF installation. Also it might sometimes help to create a sub directory /Packages/temp/ and chmod that to 777.

I get the same corrupt error message when trying to use the simple upgrade link in the Package Manager.  I have 1.0.7.  Tried uninstalling the packages in reverse order (only 2 mods, User Email System and Ad Management), but the Ad Management uninstall fails on Modifications.english.php and index.template.php.  Restored my backup forum files and tried downloading the 1.0.8 update and then uploading it in Package Manager, but got the corrupt file error.

I did some minor cosmetics tweaking of the default theme files, mainly index.template.php to add include files at header and footer for my own ads (ad management not what I'd hoped for) and additional row under forum title, changed the default button set, etc.  Does the 1.0.8 update only work with an untouched default theme?

Thanks!

***************

Nevermind - I figured it out.  I'll spell it out, in case it helps others...

I followed the SMF Upgrade instructions in the Online Manual and sucessfully upgraded to 1.0.8. I backed-up the folder, then downloaded the upgrade zip, copied the extracted files to my forum folder, ran upgrade.php from the browser, deleted upgrade.php.  no errors, no worries!  This worked out well with the mods issue, afterall.  It actually left the mods in the Package Manager like they were uninstalled, so I was able to delete them and add the mods I wanted.

Fyi: The old User Email System mod gives an error if you try to reinstall it after the upgrade.  You need to delete it and download and install the newly updated mod, for 1.0.8.

Other than that, I just had to readd the code to the few pages where I tweaked the look-and-feel, my modified stylesheet, and replaced the button set I chose.  I hope the upgrade later-on to the gold version of 1.1 goes that well!

Trying to upgrade from v1.0.6
« Reply #18 on: August 22, 2006, 11:02:09 PM »
I'm new at this, and not having much success upgrading.  When I go to the Package Manager, I am told
"A security issue has been identified in SMF 1.0.6. You can install this patch (click here to install) to easily update yourself to the latest version."
So I click, and the next page states:
"Installing this package will perform the following actions:"

But I always get this error:

      Type                     Action                             Description
1.   Execute Modification   ./Sources/QueryString.php Failure

How can I solve this Failure error?  Any help is appreciated.
Thanks.
