Please use the RC2 files from the downloads page, they are a bit newer (there were two weeks between, after all) than the ones released to Charter Members...

QuoteThe path, for FTP, is different.  It is /public_html/communty.

That did it ... I was using the file path ... thanks :)

I'll probably end up finding out it does this already... but what about if someone enters the full path, SMF could check if they have something before public_html, and if the connect fails try again but removing all the bits the user entered before public_html, or otherwise telling the user to try the suggested path (The one they entered bar all stuff before public_html)

I recently changed it to do just this, but the problem is that not all hosts use the /home/username scheme.

Also, it defaults to a value that *should* be correct - to anyone who has an incorrect default, I would appreciate a pm or post with both the wrong and the right FTP paths, not to mention the physical file path.

W0W!    :D

I've been busy and have not checked here for a while and just found out this past weekend that RC2 was out. Again I say W0W! The DevTeam did a fantastic job on this and the smoothness of the upgrade went fantastically sweet!

THANKS! to ALL there at SMF HQ & all your homes or where ever you put your time into this fantastic BB.

I was so excited that RC2 was out that when I got around to installing and running the upgrade I forgot the biggest thing, and that is Backup! - Backup! - Backup!
BUT! thanks to the great work that the DevTeam has done I had no problems at all with the update!  ;)

I would like to say a few things I really like about this New SMF,
the neatest thing I have found with it so far, (I have only had it up about 12 hours now),
but I LOVE the Attachment Manager additions that are on the SMF of now being able to click a box beside any or all attachments to delete things in there.

The reason I say this is that I run a site that is a Golf Site and there are a lot of Tours played that the users attach small game reporting files and some tours are a week to 4 weeks long and others are 3 or 6 or 12 months long. And this deleting with check boxes makes it a lot nicer to be able to pick and choose the files you want or need to to clean the attachments up.

KUDOS! to the DevTeam once more for this great feature . . . . . .  ;)

I am having one small problem and will post another post to explain that one . . . . . .  ???

<-EDIT->
OK! slap my hand! I posted my thread and then remembered another thread and went and checked it out about META and went and clicked on the "Use a META redirect instead of HTTP", and think it has fixed the little problem now.

Sorry!  so we deleted my second post and will watch this and see if we have fixed the problem, Silence is Golden, if you don't hear back from Me!    ;)

Click the "small patch available (click to install.)" link...

-[Unknown]
I have done that several times. Every time it says 'There are no installation or uninstallation actions defined!'' and that list gets longer...

I have absolutely the same behaviour in my installation of RC2.

When I click on the "small patch available (click to install.)" link, I get the response:
QuotePackage Manager - Install Actions
Install Actions for archive smf_1-0-rc2_fixes.tar.gz:
There are no installation or uninstallation actions defined!

If I then click on the "Browse Packages" link, the downloaded package appears in the list:
QuotePackage Manager - Browse Packages
Modification Packages
   Mod Name Version   
1. SMF 1.0 RC2 Fix Package 1.0  [ Apply Mod ] [ List Files ] [ Delete ]

"Apply Mod" gives me the same "no installation or uninstallation actions" described above, "Delete" works fine, "List Files" seems to work fine, too:
QuoteList files in package
Files in archive smf_1-0-rc2_fixes.tar.gz:
smf_1-0-rc2_fixes.mod (5737 bytes)
package-info.xml (1049 bytes)

I can even watch the files by clicking the filenames, all seems to be fine. How can they lack the "installation or uninstallation actions" without being corrupt???


In the "Latest packages" box above the "Package Manager" box, the "small patch available (click to install.)" link is still there. If I click it, all starts over again, but ANOTHER package is downloaded and put in the package dir:
QuotePackage Manager - Browse Packages
Modification Packages
   Mod Name Version   
1. SMF 1.0 RC2 Fix Package 1.0  [ Apply Mod ] [ List Files ] [ Delete ] 
2. SMF 1.0 RC2 Fix Package 1.0  [ Apply Mod ] [ List Files ] [ Delete ] 

The filename of the package #1 is the original smf_1-0-rc2_fixes_1.tar.gz, filename of #2 is smf_1-0-rc2_fixes_1.tar.gz, of #3 is smf_1-0-rc2_fixes_2.tar.gz and so on.


I don't know if all this has to do with "Safe Mode" but if this is the case why don't you simply check for Safe Mode and tell the user that this feature only works with "Safe Mode" turned off?

[Unknown]

Your host may be in safe mode, you may have outdated files, or... not totally sure.

It was in RC2 that a few things to do with this "automatic installation" feature were added; if you have a PackageGet.php or Packages.php from an older version of SMF 1.0 RC2 (you're not a Charter Member, so I should hope you don't...) or from 1.0 RC1, it won't work.

To answer the last thing first: My files are completely of the latest RC2 package which was available for public download, not the Charter pre release.

And yes, my server IS in safe mode. But I have to repeat:

If the current problems are really caused by Safe Mode (they doesn't have to be anyway, if you can chmod files by FTP you can "put" them, too ;) ), you should really catch that by something like:

<?php 
// Check for safe mode
if (ini_get('safe_mode')){
   // Do it the safe mode way
} else {
   // Do it the regular way
}
?>



But a feedback like "There are no installation or uninstallation actions defined!" is misleading, to say the least. My two cents.

[Unknown]

Because, certain decent hosts running safe mode have their servers configured to run PHP properly with safe mode such that things like this don't happen.

(for example, SMF and its package manager works perfectly fine under Lycos UK, which is a completely free and very safe mode service... but configured properly..)

-[Unknown]

Ok, I take the other route to what I want to show:

All bad things that may come from Safe Mode is that the files cannot be modified/written directly (because of process UID not matching the file UID or open_basedir restrictions or whatever).

But I can download the package, I can view the package, I can view the source of each file in the package. There ARE installation actions in the source files, and they ARE accessible by the package manager. Ok, the patched file cannot be written, but the user feedback "There are no installation or uninstallation actions defined!" IS WRONG.

I can absolutely accept when this and that is not possible due to e.g. Safe Mode restrictions. That's is perfectly fine. But heck, I was looking for the problem quite a while. A message like "The new or modified files of that package cannot be written. If the file permissions are correct your server runs PHP in Safe Mode and/or is not properly configured. Bug your administrator but not the SMF authors!" would be absolutely sufficient ;)

[Unknown]

Gosh, getting so worked up... calm down.

You'll be happy to know that's exactly one of the things this package was set to fix (showing that message too often.)  You just can't install it.  Maybe... just maybe... I knew what I was talking about?

Nah, can't be... rediculous.  It's not like I wrote it or anything.

Hey.

I have SMF 1.0 Beta 4 Public installed.

I have a big forum: 4700 members and 180 000 posts.

Can I upgrade to RC2 with no problems??

Burpee

I think you'll need to use the upgrade package instead of the update package on the downloads page for that.

QuoteUse this if you have YaBB SE 1.5.5, SMF 1.0 RC1, or lower installed - just use upgrade.php.
