Yeah, I already upgraded when I went into my admin cp earlier and found that 1.1.15 (http://www.simplemachines.org/community/../) was ready with a one click upgrade so I upgraded both of my forums in seconds! Great work guys and gals. ;D

Note to SMF 2.0 users...

If this isn't showing up in your admin center, you have a couple of options:
Download it from the Upgrades Site (http://custom.simplemachines.org/upgrades) and install it through the package manager
Run the "Fetch Simple Machines Files" scheduled task as follows:
Admin -> Maintenance -> Scheduled Tasks
Check the box in the "Run Now" column next to "Fetch Simple Machines Files"
Click the "Run Now" button

I'll second this.  Would like to see the changelog for 1.1.15.

That and what changes are made to the files and if any changes are made to the "theme" files so I can see if I need to do any manual changes for the custom themes that are run at a forum I admin.

How long does it take to get the notification in your admin control panel. I was editing my private board when I saw it and it installed just like a mod which is amaaaazzing compared to upgrades I have done before. For some reason my public forum does not have this notification thing yet. And the downloads section does not have the mod type upgrade with individual edits.

live627, tragidy,

There was a problem with the 2.0.1 patch that I fixed, and updated it just about half an hour ago. It should all work normally now.

I don't know where did the changelog disappear. :) Will look into it.

Thanks for this! But one quick question. This Update info is showing up in the Admin center at just one of my two forums. Any reason it's not showing up in the other forum?

Is there some setting that's not right?
Title: Re: SMF 2.0.1 and 1.1.15 critical security patches released

ForumGuy,
You may need to run the scheduled task to fetch Simple Machines files. Probably on the other forums, it didn't get to run yet (by default it's set at once per 24 hours if I remember correctly.)

Post by: Oldiesmann on September 19, 2011, 12:20:41 AM
Did you emulate a different version?

That won't have anything to do with it. In 2.0, the files containing that info (and other info, such as the news and the latest themes/packages), are fetched from our servers once every 24 hours and stored in your forum database. This saves bandwidth for us and eliminates the possibility of your forum admin center taking forever to load if our site is down. I posted info on the previous page about how to get it to show up if it isn't already showing up.

Hi there,

in the Changelog (http://download.simplemachines.org/index.php?thanks;filename=smf_2-0-1_changelog.txt (http://download.simplemachines.org/index.php?thanks;filename=smf_2-0-1_changelog.txt)) is written:
Quote
! A sensitive token was sent in the URL, allowing CSRF vulnerability (Subs-Menu.php)
But comparing Subs-Menu.php of version 2.0 and 2.0.1 does not show any differences except the @version-Line.

Was the bug already fixed in 2.0 or have you missed to replace the files correctly?

Thanks for information!

Update: Since 2.0 RC4 is no change (except a comment) done in Sources/Subs-Menu.php

If you're on 1.1.x, you can upgrade through the admin center by following the instructions in the upgrade notice (click to download the patch, then install it through the admin center).

If you're on 2.0 final, you can also upgrade through the admin center.

If you're on 2.0 RC5 or earlier, you will need to use the full upgrade.

You can upload through the admin center then. If you don't see a notice in your admin center about the patch, do the following:

Admin -> Maintenance -> Scheduled Tasks
Check the second box next to "Fetch Simple Machines Files" (the first one should already be checked)
Click the "Run Now" button

Alternately you can download the patch from the Upgrade Site (http://custom.simplemachines.org/upgrades) and upload it through your package manager.

Hoping that wasn't sarcasm, as I went to the page as stated in the initial post and it wasn't there.  A link to the 2.0.1 changelog was visible, the 1.1.15 was not.  A few others mentioned it as well, so it wasn't just me "not looking".

Thank you for the specific URL.  I admit to being unfamiliar with all the pages and layout here, as I tend to visit that area only when notified of an update.

Cal

it will work or not

Ventic,

You can either use the upgrade archive file and lose all your mods or use the package manager update and keep all your mods.  Your choice.

If you want to manually apply the updates, then download the package manager update, extract the XML and read through that for instructions on what files and code to manually update.

I'm a litle tired at the moment, and will revisit this later today.....

I do have a problem, that may have been covered in this post I may
have missed, but when I try & upgrade from 1.1.14 to 1.1.15 I get the
following.....

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

Please don't yell at me if this has been covered.....I sadly almost single handly
run my forum, without mush assistance from my mods & members....

But comparing Subs-Menu.php of version 2.0 and 2.0.1 does not show any differences except the @version-Line.

Was the bug already fixed in 2.0 or have you missed to replace the files correctly?

They are identical except for the version line.

Any update on this ?

Basically trying to ensure that Subs-Menu.php is the correct file in 2.0.1 and not one that's been accidently omited from the package ?

They are the correct files. It shouldn't have had only a version change, but this was due to a mistake made in the process, and since forums were already receiving the versioning (as you can see in the admin panel, detailed versioning link), I didn't change that. Sorry about that.

I'm very surprised! Seriously, i thought 2.0 Gold was the end of the journey for this site, especially with the upcoming release of forked versions, like Wedge. But i am very happy to see the team is still drudging to keep this project alive. One step at a time. I couldn't agree more.

BTW, for SMF 1.1.15, i noticed that the IE bug previously released as a separate patch right after 1.1.14 was released, has not been included in the 1.1.15 release changelog.

Yes, it does. I strongly recommend to upgrade to 2.0.1. You will need to make a large upgrade, since from RC5 to 2.0 there is no patch, only from 2.0 to 2.0.1 your forum can be upgraded with the patch. Please note that there are security weaknesses addressed in 2.0 as well, so I really recommend that you upgrade your forum, when possible.

There is no patch file for any RC version. If you are running any RC version,,you must use the "large upgrade" pack and replace all of the files.

yes you need to upgrade to latest version so you will have the security issues since your version was released patched. once you upgrade to 2.0.1 you do NOT need to install the patch.

If it is just a patch, can we have the patch in form of a mod. It is no point upgrading the version number since it will affect others such as the mod installation as well as removal. I believe we have done this before where back in RC4. Just a point to ponder.

That's already the case for 2.0 to 2.0.1 and 1.1.14 to 1.1.15. There has never been an actual package manager upgrade for pre-release (beta and rc versions). The only package manager items for pre-releases were for critical security issues where a version bump would not be called for.

I don't quite understand. Can you explain why we need to download the whole package again, when the security patches could be just a small mod to patch current 2.0 package without changing its version to 2.0.1?

the patch contains the same updated code as the normal upgrade packages, it just depends on any issues you face in the upgrade which will work for you at this point, you do NOT need to use the large upgrade package if you are running 2.0 or 1.1.14.

Like always with 1.1 and 1.0 - you can now update 2.0 through the admin panel, following the link in the notification.

Or, you can grab a package manager update from here http://custom.simplemachines.org/upgrades/

May I have the changelog of 1.1.15 ?

try looking? The 1.1.15 changelog is in the list
http://download.simplemachines.org/index.php?thanks;filename=smf_1-1-15_changelog.txt

Wow. You're abrasive to new users. Customer service refresher seems to be needed for the marketing guy? Oh, and It's not.

(https://www.simplemachines.org/community/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fimg26.imageshack.us%2Fimg26%2F8153%2Fsmfdownloads13167271363.th.png&hash=b49716a4a81f7cf397c29be7f9f0adb8)
img26.imageshack.us/img26/8153/smfdownloads13167271363.png/
(I would have it automatically link to an image proving such, but...add http:// )

Basically, from the link provided in the beginning of the thread to download.simplemachines.org/, the only changelog that is listed for us, mere end users, is SMF 2.0.1. For that matter, the only download listed on that page is 2.0.1. There isn't a link at all at the beginning of this thread to SMF 1.1.15's update.

Now, if I go to Package Manager Updates -> SMF 1.1.14 to SMF 1.1.15, then I can see what the file edits are, but not the changelog. For the changelog, I have to go to Archived Releases, where I can see every update since the beginning, which is not new user friendly.

For new users, I would recommend: download.simplemachines.org/?archive;version=64 (add http:// ), where you can see everything for SMF 1.1.15.

Is there a way we can get a link for the SMF 1.1.15 files on the first post in this thread? I imagine you'll get tired of constantly telling some people where to go when they skip to the end of the thread to post their request for the files and the changelog.

If you are using an alternative language, make sure to test with english - and see if the error goes away.

Ventic,

You can either use the upgrade archive file and lose all your mods or use the package manager update and keep all your mods.  Your choice.

If you want to manually apply the updates, then download the package manager update, extract the XML and read through that for instructions on what files and code to manually update.

Hello All,

Please help.

Im using smf on my host resellerspanel.com

1st, it seems they have the old version and whenever i try upgrading it gives me an error that the package is corrupted.

2nd, there is a lot of porn posts at the clients site now.

How do i prevent this?

I have deleted most of these posts/users but i know they will register and post again.

Actually the forum is free to guest.

Is there a way that anyone can view but have to register and activate before posting? How do i set that up?

Thanks.

The forum I found on there: http://forum.resellerspanel.com is running vBulletin. We can't help you there. But I'll assume you're one of their customers.

In which case, create a separate topic, linking to your own site, listing which version of SMF you're going to and from. If you're going from 1.1 to 2.0 you need to use the LARGE upgrade package which can not be run in the package manager.

Note to SMF 2.0 users...

If this isn't showing up in your admin center, you have a couple of options:
Download it from the Upgrades Site (http://custom.simplemachines.org/upgrades) and install it through the package manager...
...and get beyond the error message that the file is corrupt or empty how, exactly? (the usual method has been to unpack the zip on own computer and then copy over the old files, so if there's a different method I'd like to hear it)
Quote
Run the "Fetch Simple Machines Files" scheduled task as follows:
Admin -> Maintenance -> Scheduled Tasks
Check the box in the "Run Now" column next to "Fetch Simple Machines Files"
Click the "Run Now" button
I did that and it didn't. Hmmmm.

i told you i dont wanna do the upgrade via the package manager but by uploading the files normally

Upgrading through the package manager is the only way you can do it without losing existing mods.
Well, then, I'm up the creek without a paddle because my Package Manager claims that the package is either empty or corrupt. Help?

Ahem...

Clara, I had the same problem that you had.

I know not why, nor do I know how to fix it.

BUT (And I think this should go in the documentation, too. I'm about to attempt to do that.), there's an easy way around it, you'll be pleased to know.

Get the upgrade archive/package and upload it, STILL ARCHIVED, into your Packages directory, using your FTP client.

Then, go to Package manager, to apply it.

Naturally, before you attempt this, you really ought to read my sig. ;)

EDIT: It's now on the wiki.

http://wiki.simplemachines.org/smf/Patching

In the section marked "Obtaining the patch". :)

Thanks k@. Other responses to this difficulty amount to "I pity da foo who don't know which section of this large board to go to to find stuff when time is of the essence".  Just navigation of this board alone is a time consuming research project, let alone figuring that Wiki is yet another place to spend quality research wheelspinning time on.  Many thanks.

=========================

By golly, what I needed to know  is in this one single line:

In some cases, the upload to Packages may be corrupted, when you attempt this. In this case, you can upload the file (Still archived) to your Packages directory, using your FTP client. Then, go to Package Manager, to apply it.
Now how hard is it to just post THAT. Gee. And now anybody else coming to this thread FIRST (like I did) for that piece of information won't have to spend all friggin day looking through all the boards just to get rerouted to Wiki to spend the rest of the day over there. K@, lotsa smooches, you're a lifesaver!!

This deal with upgrading via the Package Manager has always been an issue, and it's always been the case in the past that manually unpacking an upgrade and then overwriting files (modifications be damned) the way it was done. Nobody should be surprised when the Package Manager does what it's been doing as usual...least of all support people.

Clara,

Part of the problem is that the suggestion that fixed it for you is one of 20 suggestions that could have been said. And even then, I've seen many hosts still not work after such suggestions. Depending on server configuration many things could be the problem for this. I'm glad you found what worked for you, and it's always useful when someone types what fixed it for them so thank you.

in Display.php line 1380 and 1381
Code: [Select]
if ($context['browser']['is_firefox'])
header('Content-Disposition: ' . $disposition . '; filename*="UTF-8\'\'' . preg_replace('~&#(\d{3,8});~e', '$fixchar(\'$1\')', $utf8name) . '"');


strange «*» at the left side of «=» is a reason for FF 8 glitches - when u try download attachment name of file index.php insted of normal attach name.

we're change line 1381 to
Code: [Select]
header('Content-Disposition: ' . $disposition . '; filename="' . preg_replace('~&#(\d{3,8});~e', '$fixchar(\'$1\')', $utf8name) . '"');
and it's work normally

Hi there,

...and thanx for making my first experience of Forum creation so easy.

If I am running 2.0.1, am I already patched relative to your Security Patch announce Sept. 18, 2011?

I would think yes, but prefer to ask rather than find myself wishing that I had...

Thanx in advance.

Hi Guys

I am using smf 2.0, but I am having problems trying to upgrade.

I am getting this error:

Quote
Although the package was downloaded to the server it appears to be empty. Please check the Packages directory, and the "temp" sub-directory are both writable. If you continue to experience this problem you should try extracting the package on your PC and uploading the extracted files into a subdirectory in your Packages directory and try again. For example, if the package was called shout.tar.gz you should:
1) Download the package to your local PC and extract it into files.
2) Using an FTP client create a new directory in your "Packages" folder, in this example you may call it "shout".
3) Upload all the files from the extracted package to this directory.
4) Go back to the package manager browse page and the package will be automatically found by SMF.

Any ideas?

webgold, if I could, I'd move your question to the proper support board.  I'm sorry I cannot help in this way.
Your problem is a common one, and you will get plenty of help over there.

I don't want to "clog up" this topic with the discussion of your issue. I apologize.
