Title: SMF 1.0.8 Released
Post by: Thantos 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:

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! (http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=107112.0) 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 (http://docs.simplemachines.org/index.php?board=3.0;sort=subject) 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!
Title: Trying to upgrade from v1.0.6

It asks for your password once per session. If you try logging in using another computer, or if you clear your browsers cookies and sessions, then it should again ask you.

After just logging in, it doesn't ask for the password, because you've recently proved that you are the admin (by logging into the account). ıf you stay logged in, without doing anything in the admin panel, your admin session should expire and ask for your password. Wait for 30 minutes, for example.

Sorry about my english, I'm a 16 years old peruvian boy. I would like to help...

Well for these guys who are having some problems updating their forum to SMF 1.0.8.

If you are using SMF 1.0.7 just follow me

1: Download the zip file from here (click here and save it) (http://www.simplemachines.org/download/index.php?thanks;filename=smf_1-0-8_update.zip)

Note: Download the zip file named: SMF 1.0.8 - update this is not a packge is an update that' it...

2: Now unzip (unpack) the file using WinRar or Winzip, whatever you want, just make sure to unpack it.

3: Now connect to your hosting/server using an FTP Program such as CuteFTP

4: Now using you FTP program navigate trought your forum directory, for example the path will be:
/yourdomainname.com/forum  or /forum.yourdomainname 

Note: Don't navigate trought your forum directory using your broxser (IE or Firefox Not at all) navigate to your forum directory using your FTP Program.

5: Now, upload all files and folders that you unzip (unpack) from the file we just downloaed. If the FTP program tell you that the files and folders are already in your server just replace them, just hit "yes to all" to replace all the new files and folders with the ones we have in our forum.

6: Now that you had upload all files and folders to your forum directory you need to run the upgrade.php

Open IE or Firefox and go to: www.you-forum-domain.com/upgrade.php

This will upgrade your forum to the latest version, just follow the instructions.

Note: If you are using another language as default instead of english it might give you an error when running upgrade.php you have to download the latest language version and upload it to your forum, here a list of languages with RC3:

http://www.simplemachines.org/download/?languages

Please follow this steps in order to update your forum 1.0.7 to 1.0.8 and RC2 to RC3 just make sure to download the right files because here we download the update for 1.0.7 to 1.0.8

Last Thing... Remember to delete the file named: upgrade.php from your forum directory after updating your forum

;D

I get the same problem. Is there any other link I could use to directly update from 1.0.6 to 1.0.8? Or at least a way to update from 1.0.6 to 1.0.7 so then we can activate it with the given link?

the index.php file just updates the smf version.. SO you can manually change that if you got mod installed.

Use the package file, extract it and check the .mod file, it has instructions basically on what to modify manually... I had to do this too.

Post by: opally on August 24, 2006, 02:30:46 PM
As far as I can tell, from the list of changed files linked on the first page of this thread, there are just 4 changed files when updating from 1.0.7 to 1.0.8. I don't know why the update package has a lot of extra files, maybe it is for updating older versions.

If you have custom modifications (such as CAPTCHA, or custom profile fields), you'll have to do a compare on each page. Use a tool like Winmerge.

Scroll down and examine each difference in the code. PHP has the beauty of being not too hard to get a general idea about, even for the non-programmer (compare that to Perl!) so you should be able to figure out which changes you should accept. Good mods are well commented, showing where the custom code begins and ends, so this shouldn't be too hard to figure out.

Then simply upload and overwrite your old files with your new ones.

Since I have some custom code, the method I describe is the one I followed for this small patch. This took me about 5 minutes, and since my forum isn't very active, I didn't bother to shut it down. In fact, since there seem to be no changes to the database, and no changes to database functions, you can probably safely do this update 'live'.

If you are updating an older version than 1.0.7, this method will not work.

Just to say I've just successfully upgraded my 1.0.7 to 1.0.8. I followed jcroot's step by step instructions - this being my first upgrade with SMF I was being ultra careful and paranoid, and I really appreciated having a step by step idiot's guide - thanks! (http://ecanus.net/smileys/coolup-blue.gif)

I moved to SMF mainly because of upgrade issues with phpBB, and though I've no mods installed on my board I did do a custom theme based on the default theme. I'd kept a list of which files had changes in my theme, but I'd not noted precisely what the changes were - I've done that this time as I've done the upgrade.

My two tips would be when you make any changes to a theme to keep a note of both which files you've made changes in, and the line numbers and what the changes were for (saves much head scratching a couple of months down the line), and to use WinMerge (http://winmerge.org/) that opally suggested if you're manually editing files during upgrades - it really does make it a lot easier to find the changes between the files and help prevent you missing any - I wish I'd known about it when I was doing all the tedious and terrifying phpBB upgrades - well actually, I just wish I'd discovered SMF far earlier - would have saved me no end of bother!  ;)

Probably your index file was replaced by another account in your server account. Index replacing hacks are about always server problems.

If you think you were hacked because of SMF, please post your access logs here:

How did you do the update? Which theme are you using?
I'm using the default theme.I updated using the package manager.Also the images didn't show at all with the original install.

I just wanted to add my appreciation for the updates.

I won't run RC level stuff, so I'm on the 1.0x track.

Thanks again!

Thanks for the upgrade. It works fine. But there's still a mistake in ../sources/membmerlist.php and .../load.php concerning the icq link:

http://web.icq.com/whitepages/about_me/1,,,00.html? ... doesn't work

This link works: http://web.icq.com/whitepages/about_me.php? ...

Thats confusing, Did you go to feature and options and turn on SEF urls?

(The option works for me though I use 1.1)

No, I changed the web address strings in the two php files.

I am getting the same error when attempting to update my copy of 1.0.7

"You're using an outdated version of SMF, which contains some bugs which have since been fixed. It is recommended that you update your forum to the latest version as soon as possible. It only takes a minute!"

I do, but get this message.

"The package you are trying to download or install is either corrupt or not compatible with this version of SMF."

Please advise.

Could you please suggest me the best way to update to upgrade my SMF 1.0.1
Will it be ok if I simply use that pack for upgrading from 1.0.7 to 1.0.8.

When i upgraded from 1.0.7 to 1.0.8 ( last week ), it was really sweet but for 4 days now, it has been errors over errors. To post replies, this error comes up:

An Error Has Occurred!

Though when i check new replies, it shows that the post was accepted.

Well, that may be... but I've modified the UI code some, and I'm running MKPortal 1.0.  Pretty sure there would be some heavy work involved going to 1.1 of both SMF and MKPortal, which I don't really want to dive into, at this time. :)

Thanks for the info, though.

OK. I fixed the first error i had with 1.0.8 but now this error came up:

Incorrect key file for table 'smf_log_online'; try to repair it

Note: It appears that your database may require an upgrade. Your forum files are currently at version SMF 1.0.8, whereas your database is at version SMF 1.0.2. It is recommended that you execute the latest version of upgrade.php.

Where do i get this upgrade.php???

i keep getting this when im upgrading from 1.0.5 to 1.0.7 even after doing as it has suggested, it tells me the files were all "sucess" so im a bit confused with it

Some of the files this package needs to modify are not writable. This needs to be changed by logging into FTP and chmoding the files.

I just upgraded from 1.0.7 to 1.0.8. In 7, the index showed calendar events correctly. In 8, there is a glitch. I have something on the calendar for Oct 7-8, however, on the index it is showing up as the event is occuring today (Sep. 7). How can I fix this?

I don't know of I did it the right way but this seems to work also:

Upgrade from 1.07

downloaded the "SMF 1.0.8 - update"  to mine PC, unzipped file en ftp'd the following files:

sources:  post, profile and Querystring (all php) then index.php and upgrade.php


No problem after running upgrade. (deleted upgrade there after)

Why do it this way? I made some mods and looks in the versioncontrol, this seemed to be the only files who where changed. (you can check this in the adminpanel)

I hope this is correct, have no problems e.g.

@dl3mcj, Will look into the ICQ problems, but it seems to work for me, weird.

Amy3, please ensure your using http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=107135.0;attach=18016 that file in the package manager. Else follow this doc: http://docs.simplemachines.org/index.php?board=3.0;sort=subject using these files http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=107135.0;attach=18017

PPG, the buddymod is acting up, seek help in its thread, or in a support thread.


To anyone I missed sorry, open support threads rather than posting here.

Trekkie101, thanks for your message. I heard from another SMF user having problems with CAPTCHA after upgrading. I have CAPTCHA also. I don't see any issues with it in this forum. Or are there any I should kow about, before upgrading to 1.0.8? Like will I need to reinstall CAPTCHA?
Title: Re: SMF 1.0.8 Released
Post by: Trekkie101 on September 13, 2006, 02:39:36 AM
Im not sure about that, but to be on the safe side, you could uninstall it and then re-install it after you've updated to 1.0.8. However the package manager version, my top link shouldn't really effect any mods. If it does it should warn you first.

I ftp'ed the files that were in the Updated Source Files Folder, changed the permissions to 755, and went over to the browser to load http://boards.sethroberts.net/upgrade.php and got only "No input file specified." ??? The forum, however, shows that it's at version 1.0.8. Does this mean I am done?  There is no upgrade.php in the directory. I made a second attempt, uploading the files again, and got the same result.

Also, I accidently uploaded, the first time, the new index.php inside the Sources directory. I couldn't recall if there was already an index.php there and overwritten the version that's there. Is this a problem?

You don't need to run upgrade.php if you're on 1.0.7. The upgrade.php file is included in the "update" and "upgrade" packages that are available on the downloads page.
