If your the admin of a cPanel box, then I fear for your customers.

Sorry, AchoHosting, but a lot of the people here are weary of hosts they think will be a detriment to SMF's users.  Everyone is wrong sometimes, just as everyone is right sometimes.... even smart and stupid people.

Jay?

Not trying to blow you off - I was up to 2am closing clients forums down with the phpBB exploit in it - I did not see where it was closed with just the PHP upgrade.  I have to sleep sometime.

However if you have been around WHM/Cpanel for any lenght of time, those 3 lines are all you really need.  Actually line 1 should be /scripts/upcp -f  - otherwise you will mostliky break Fantastico if you have it installed.  The second line you may also do from the command line as well.

Hello

I haven't upgraded to SM yet and I am still running Yabbse.

Yesterday my host said that they "reset their MySql server"  and my site gives the error

Database Error

Please try again. If you come back to this error screen, report the error to an administrator.



I want to upgrade to SM but now I'm all confused:

-The hot said that their tech team is working on fixing my site....I don't know what they are doing...talked to them last night.

-If I upgrade to SM am I going to loose all my forum messages? That would be a disaster.

-If I upgrade to SM which I would really like to do now will that fix my problem or I have to wait for the host?

I'm so stressed I can't think :o :'(

1. Your site is back

2. No theres a upgrader that will move them all across

3. Your board seems fine.

oh!

see I come here and it comes back,  before I posted it was down.

uhm thanks guys!

Would it be a stupid question if I asked how to go about doing the move, I think I'm inputting the wrong search terms.


Also how do I go about backing up the files I have now...just incase I screw up? Do I just ftp everything to my hard drive from my webspace?




Trekkie101

Convertors on the downloads page, thats on the menu at the side.

You never read my post then, since I did say from the command line.

No comment as you will take anything I say the wrong way.

It say on my cute ftp "queue window" that all the files have been uploaded but the ftp is still working doing somthing...I dunno.

Trekkie101

It can take some time to upload each file individually even on a 10MB connection it may take a little time, but have you started uploading the files yet?

Usually when its done it will stop working and display the files in the public html folder.

Trekkie101

Try the address for the convertor and see if it works, also make sure you backup before you do.

ketchup

okies it worked!  :)


I see the forum....forgot to delete instal.php

I was just testing this on some blank webspace before I convert my forum to SM

How do I back up my yabbse files...do I just download everything from my ftp on to my hard drive? ???

Trekkie101

Atachments and Avatars yes, the rest is fine, but back up your database in the admin CP and make sure you do.
