When upgrading a 2.0.10 database to 2.1 Beta 3 (from the git repository) I encounter the following errors:
Warning: mysqli_get_server_info() expects parameter 1 to be mysqli, resource given in /volume1/web/upd/upgrade.php(1555) : eval()'d code on line 1
Fatal error: Call to undefined function safe_serialize() in /volume1/web/upd/upgrade.php on line 351
Kinda wierd eh. The database was only modified by the fllowing mods: a shoutbox, country flags, spoilers, reason for editing and users online today.
Those shouldn't really pose much of an obstacle tho, right?
Well I made a new directory in which i put the files for 2.0.13 and assigned a copy of the database to it. After running the beta3 upgrade, it says "The directory: /avatars/Users has to be writable to continue the upgrade. Please make sure permissions are correctly set to allow this. "
I don't have a Users directory, and upon making it and assigning permissions (777) it doesn't fix the issue.
Huh...started from scratch and now it works. I'll keep you guys posted on any new stuff that goes down.
