solved Upgrade from SMF 1.1.21 to 2.1.2

September 06, 2022, 03:31:25 AM by Imago
First of all, I would like to thank all members and team who cared to help me in upgrading from 1.1 RC3 to 1.1.21

Now I am getting the same errors when trying to upgrade to 2.0.x or 2.1.x - tried all of them and the process stops always at 45% after adding the hash file and before converting the serialized strings, as demonstrated in the previous topic.

Tried also all possible combinations with PHP and MySQL but the problem is not there, neither is it in the cPanel or CWP.

Added also serialize_precision to php.ini - no effect. Always getting this image

xx Inherited old SMF forum

August 29, 2022, 07:57:48 AM by ghaniba
Hi Folks,

I've inherited an old SMF forum.  I was asked to assist when it got a http error 500. I've got access to the host via SSH & ftp, so full access to files.  I verified it has a database it's pointing to, IP/creds match properly.  I'm guessing it was either compromised or a php version upgrade on the hosting platform happened, knocking it down.  I'm not even positive it's a 1.1 branch, but I see this in changelog.txt:

Changelog started January 1, 2004; Currently at $Revision: 1.2111.2.470 $.

SMF 1.1.4                                                                    ???
September 2007

Also, it appears it's running a much newer version of PHP than what I'm seeing on the forum is supported -- perhaps this is the issue -- Just not sure where to even begin on this, really.

$ /usr/bin/php --version
PHP 7.4.30 (cli) (built: Jun  7 2022 15:50:00) ( NTS )
Copyright (c) The PHP Group
Zend Engine v3.4.0, Copyright (c) Zend Technologies
    with the ionCube PHP Loader + ionCube24 v11.0.1, Copyright (c) 2002-2022, by ionCube Ltd.
-bash-4.2$ ls /usr/bin/php*
/usr/bin/php  /usr/bin/php-cgi  /usr/bin/phpize

Any suggestions would be very welcome!

PHP Fatal error: require_once(): Failed opening required '/QueryString.php' (include_path='.:/opt/alt/php74/usr/share/pear') in /xxxxxxxxxxxxxx/index.php on line 51"

Hi team
Im stuck here,

any clues how to fix this 500 error much appreciated

This is what was reported to me

There are a few more errors that wont break the website, but they will lead to that
[27-Jun-2022 21:39:17 UTC] PHP Notice: Undefined variable: boarddir in *********/index.php on line 47 [27-Jun-2022 21:39:17 UTC] PHP Notice: Undefined variable: sourcedir in /**********/xHere/index.php on line 51 [27-Jun-2022 21:39:17 UTC] PHP Warning: require_once(/QueryString.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/skiflmnr4msh/public_html/xHere/index.php on line 51

All of them from the code in the .index file.
