Title: Download for nightly(github) smf2.1
Post by: albertlast on January 21, 2018, 02:11:12 AM
When you like to test smf2.1,
than you got the best exprience when you use the github version.
Since you need to move some stuff etc. i provide a ready to use packages,
which get generated twice of the day:
http://0exclusive.de/smf/smf2.1_nightly_install.zip
http://0exclusive.de/smf/smf2.1_nightly_upgrade.zip

https://0exclusive.de/smf/smf2.1_nightly_install.zip
https://0exclusive.de/smf/smf2.1_nightly_upgrade.zip

Also in this version it's important when you provide bugs,
which "version" you use ther for you find a file in the root called "last_commit_<version>" exp: last_commit_de7e49,
so when you open a bug/issue/request provide this number or even better update first to last version.


-- Added https links

Minor issue i fixed in the last hours,
the build process was running to often and
the version number got only 6 characters, should be 7 -> fixed

With the version you can look into this link: https://github.com/SimpleMachines/SMF2.1/commits/release-2.1
to see how much commits/changes are between this version and github version.

Todo this even more easier i added in the last_commit_<version> a url which leads your directly to the version comparison
for exp: https://github.com/SimpleMachines/SMF2.1/compare/9e95b1b...release-2.1

Since i'm not able to update the start topic,
i would like to hint that you can get the download by https too.

https://0exclusive.de/smf/smf2.1_nightly_install.zip
https://0exclusive.de/smf/smf2.1_nightly_upgrade.zip

Maybe a mod could change this.

maybe would be a good idea to stick this topic or ref from sticked 2.1 topic to this,
so that people get a ready to roll setup/upgrade packed?

Excellent !  Thank you.   I have a question:  What version SMF does the upgrade work ?
Title: Re: Download for nightly(github) smf2.1
Post by: Joomlamz on June 10, 2018, 12:37:40 AM

The database was outdated 2.0.5

Doesn’t matter. There have been no database changes in 2.0.x

Wasn't there a MIME type column added in the attachments table in 2.0.6?

stupid question.
I have a test install of 2.1beta3 - can I use these upgrades to go to beta4?
Title: Re: Download for nightly(github) smf2.1

Yes, you should be able to with no problem.

Thanks mate, I'll give it a crack when I get a chance.

Post by: landyvlad on June 26, 2018, 09:07:06 AM
Sorry for what may be a stupid question - should this just work the same way as a usual upgrade file via the package manager?
I ask because I tried that and got the error
Quote
package upload failed due to the following error:
"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."

no you cannot use the package manager for this upgrade, you need to override all files and run the upgrade script.

do make sure this is NOT on your live install.

OK is there a guide for idiots step by step of what to do?

Yep definitely NOT my live (2.0.x) forum.

Beta-to-beta updates work pretty well.  Your code gets updated & your database structures are updated properly.

There is one caveat:  If you scan the upgrade code (especially in other/upgrade_2-1_mysql.sql) you'll see that parts of the code will not allow themselves to be executed twice.  If there are fixes in those areas, you will not get the benefit.   

Bottom line is that a beta-to-beta upgrade gets you 99% of the way there but you may miss out on some fixes.  Maybe I'm a little OCD on this, but I always execute the full upgrade from 2.0.x to 2.1.

I follow these steps:
 1) Back everything up...
 2) Delete all folders & files except:
        - attachments
        - avatars
        - smileys
        - custom_avatar    (<= make sure your custom avatar folder uses this name!)
        - any mod-specific folders for mods you want to keep, if you have any (e.g., /downloads)
        - Settings.php
        - (Some theme developers like keeping the Themes folder around, too...)
  3) Use the nightly upgrade .zip from the start of this thread.  Extract the files on top of your remaining files above. 
  4) Run upgrade.php in your forum root; some folks use ftp, but I simply use the browser, works fine

***  If you are using a copy of your prod database, don't forget to disable things like notification-related scheduled tasks in your test environment, or your production users might see icky test data.  *** 

Hope this helps,

you should also not delete Settings_bak.php either.

See if I understand this accurately. If I have a 2.1 install I can re-install practically every day with a new upgrade package on Github?

Yes, given the minor caveat noted above.

Illori - Requiring the backup around was an old bug that has been fixed.   See PR #4180 up on Github.

Quick question - I have a very small test forum for 2.1 and am trying to upgrade to latest version exactly as per provided instructions earlier in this thread.
Running upgrade.php
Time elapsed has 'stopped' at 0 mins, 37 seconds.
The green bar for "Overall Progress" seems to have stopped at 63%
The orange bar for 'Step' progress is sitting at 100%
Progress is showing as Step 4. Database changes.

it's been sitting like this for about 5 minutes so far....

Obviously a large database would take a long time but in this instance my database is only 6.36 MB. Yep, megabytes.

EDIT:  I just ran it again and selected continue, this time it went almost straight away to success. :)  Cheers

Please tell me whether I should upgrade to the official version 2.1RC or the latest nightly build posted here is the same?

Depends on you really, they may not be the same. The official RC1 is the public release, concidered stable enough to use, while the nightly may change and/or temporarily break stuff.

Since the offical release of rc2 is two month old,
here a reminder that you can use the nightly version,
where many of the known issue of rc2 got already fixed.
