This what I miss. Please advise.



 ;) When retry to upgarde with IE8 at the same step it show blank page.

Please advise.



Hello there!
It sounds like the PHP engine on your host's server crashes.
Please try looking in your cpanel for the webserver logs, or ask your host in case you don't find them, and attach here the webserver error log.
To-do lists are for deferral. The more things you write down the later they're done... until you have 100s of lists of things you don't do.

Crashed, I run well with the 1.1.8 -> 1.1.9 and 1.1.10.  now it has more than 3000 posts. I checked in the error log but nothing.

Please advise.



; About this file ;
; This file controls many aspects of PHP's behavior.  In order for PHP to
; read it, it must be named 'php.ini'.  PHP looks for it in the current
; working directory, in the path designated by the environment variable
; PHPRC, and in the path that was defined in compile time (in that order).
; Under Windows, the compile-time path is the Windows directory.  The
; path in which the php.ini file is looked for can be overriden using
; the -c argument in command line mode.
; The syntax of the file is extremely simple.  Whitespace and Lines
; beginning with a semicolon are silently ignored (as you probably guessed).
; Section headers (e.g. [Foo]) are also silently ignored, even though
; they might mean something in the future.
; Directives are specified using the following syntax:
; directive = value
; Directive names are *case sensitive* - foo=bar is different from FOO=bar.
; The value can be a string, a number, a PHP constant (e.g. E_ALL or M_PI), one
; of the INI constants (On, Off, True, False, Yes, No and None) or an expression
; (e.g. E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE), or a quoted string ("foo").
; Expressions in the INI file are limited to bitwise operators and parentheses:
; |            bitwise OR
; &            bitwise AND
; ~            bitwise NOT
; !            boolean NOT
; Boolean flags can be turned on using the values 1, On, True or Yes.
; They can be turned off using the values 0, Off, False or No.
; An empty string can be denoted by simply not writing anything after the equal
; sign, or by using the None keyword:
;   foo =         ; sets foo to an empty string
;   foo = none      ; sets foo to an empty string
;   foo = "none"   ; sets foo to the string 'none'
; If you use constants in your value, and these constants belong to a dynamically
; loaded extension (either a PHP extension or a Zend extension), you may only
; use these constants *after* the line that loads the extension.
; All the values in the php.ini-dist file correspond to the builtin
; defaults (that is, if no php.ini is used, or if you delete these lines,
; the builtin defaults will be identical).

Are you your own host?

Please make a phpinfo file and tell a link to it.  (What is a phpinfo() file?)
Also, you might try re-uploading the upgrade package files, to make sure none was missed during upload.

Yes, it is my own host.

I will try to ftp to the server again.


Ah well. PHP 4.4 is an old PHP version, there isn't even support for it anymore if I remember well, and that for a few years.
Though SMF should work, but the problem is that if there's an error, new versions of PHP, more robust, should simply tell the error, while old unmaintained versions might ... crash.
If possible, try upgrading it, to 5.1 at least.

Please keep us informed, if you wish. :)

EDIT: Ah, I just noticed... mysql API version 3.23, this is not supported by MySQL itself anymore for a long time now, also I'm afraid nobody tests SMF on it anymore... (if I remember well, is not even available for download at mysql.com, at least I searched for it for exactly the purpose of testing SMF installation/upgrade on a few MySQL versions and couldn't find it).
5.0 and 5.1 are MySQL versions to look at, if possible...

 ;) It is to upgrade my server.

I will back to inform you whatever happen.  :D


I resolved this.

My server has old version of PHP and Mysql so this mak everything hard to upgrade which is
PHP version     4.4.6
MySQL version    4.1.22-standard

But I still need to work on the current machine.

I backup all DB and file and move to another machine which has

PHP version     5.2.10
MySQL version    4.1.22-standard

And make upgrade from 1.1.8 to 1.1.9 to 1.1.10 by easy, and make big upgrade to SMF 2.0 RC1.2 also by easy just one time and finish.

Now I have fresh files and working DB. I backup DB and files then restore to the first machine. Now it works.

I will show you the link in a few day after I finish fix some theme and special tag. My site has size medium-big.

Thanks Norv, just one word about my old MySQL version.

Sorry about my English I will come back to inform you later soon after all online.


Okay, great! Then you're quite set, including for 2.0 (hopefully), good to hear things worked out! :)
