I would upgrade if i knew my old database would work with it. On most forums you have a forums you have a working setup and then upgrade it. Upgrading a dead version is opening the proverbial tin.

Anyway I've got the fresh version working by doing this in install.php

// if (version_compare($databases[$db_type]['version'], preg_replace('~^\D*|\-.+?$~', '', eval($databases[$db_type]['version_check']))) > 0)
// {
// $incontext['error'] = $txt['error_db_too_low'];
// return false;
// }

That got me past the version check.. tomorrow i'll swap databases about and see what happens.

PHP errors occur because the coding structure is different. When adding codes into DIV

NameX_v1.2.7 BoardIndex.template.php;

    $func = 'template_ic_block_' . $block['tpl'];
        echo '
        <div id="block-' . $block['txt'] . '" class="windowbg">
            ', $func(), '

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected 'template_ic_block_' (T_STRING), expecting ';' or ',' in C:\wamp64\www\smf\Themes\NameX_v1.2.7\BoardIndex.template.php on line 197

      $func = 'template_ic_block_' . $block['tpl'];
      echo '
      <div id="block-' . $block['txt'] . '" class="windowbg">
            $func = 'template_ic_block_' . $block['tpl'];
      if($func == 'template_ic_block_recent')

Yes. We told you how... multiple times...

To which we have responded:  Turn on checkboxes for moderation and use that to delete the redirect message from the board message list.

1- use a modern, supported version of php...
Just because we have legacy support does not mean that it is recommended

2- upgrade to 2.0.19

Try the if with continue;

$func = 'template_ic_block_' . $block['tpl'];
if($func == 'template_ic_block_recent')

If that doesn't work, I'll have a look later.

Hi all,

MY existing forum is 2.0.17. In the last few days since my host helpfully upgraded PHP to v8, I'm now getting 500 error codes. I can't fixed a shared server so I decided to move it over to my small VPS.

I moved the forum files and the database, changed the login details in settings.php and it crashed the apache service repeatedly. I disabled eaccelerator and that made no difference, the error message changed but it still crashed.

So i downloaded a clean version of 2.0.17 and decided to install that.

Requirements page says:
2.0-2.0.6   4.1-5.4
2.0.7-2.0.13   4.1-5.6
2.0.14-2.0.15   5.4-7.1
2.0.16-2.0.17   5.3-7.3  <==
2.0.18-2.0.18   5.3-7.4
2.0.19-2.0.19   5.3-8.0

Interestingly an earlier version up to 2.0.15 requires a later version of php but a later version is good with an earlier version of php?

Anyway, my version of PHP is 5.3.6

Requirements page says: MySQL 4.0.18 or higher (at least 4.1.0 would be better) and PHP MySQL client API 4.0.18 or higher.

I have mysqlnd 5.0.8-dev

When I run install.php and I get this:

QuoteCritical Error!
The version of your database server is very old, and does not meet SMF's minimum requirements.

Urgh... yes it does?

So what gives? How do I get my forum back online given that my apache, php and mysql exceed the stated minimum requirements?

I'm moving the recent post up. But it appears both above and below. The method I used for the solution did not work.

BoardIndex.template.php search;

echo '
<div id="boardindex_table" class="boardindex_table">';

   echo '
   <div id="boardindex_table" class="boardindex_table">';

Recent messages move up ok.

The code I used to prevent it from appearing in the subsection does not work.

BoardIndex.template.php search;

$func = 'template_ic_block_' . $block['tpl'];

$func = 'template_ic_block_' . $block['tpl'];
if($func == 'template_ic_block_recent')
