Quote from: Kindred on October 04, 2010, 07:04:46 PMbut wait.... upgrading to 2.0, you will replace ALL of your forum files. None of the files for 1.1.x will work with 2.0, so how would any custom edits interfere?switch to default themeCopy all 2.0 files, overwriting your current files.run upgrade.php
Quote from: Kindred on October 04, 2010, 08:50:23 PMno... there are relationships between tables...it sounds like some of your file permissions are stopping the overwrite of the new 2.0 files.So, what I suggestDelete all files in the Sources directoryDelete all files and subdirectories in the Themes/default subdirectorydelete index.php in the root.NOW upload the files in the large upgrade archive.leftover mods in the database should have no effect until the are re-installed
Quote from: Oya on October 04, 2010, 09:21:29 PMthat would workthe upgrade will change the structure from 1.1 style tables to 2.0 style tables and anything left over from mods will just be sat there, dormant
Quote from: Kindred on October 05, 2010, 01:02:27 AM... why are you so opposed to running upgrade.php on your database?
Quote from: Oya on October 05, 2010, 03:37:02 AM.... the upgrader is by far the quickest and cleanest solution
Quote from: ElectricSquid on October 05, 2010, 11:01:39 AMDo you know if modsettings is connected in some way to other data (in a way were I couldn't simply replace it with the install version)?The mods are gone, so the data should go too.
Quote from: Oya on October 05, 2010, 03:29:18 PMtheres really no need to go 1.1.9 to 1.1.11 to 2.0there are no db changes after 1.1.9
Quoteand the modsettings are all in the database in smf_settings and will in almost all cases just be reused
Quote from: Kindred on October 05, 2010, 04:02:38 PMthank you oya.... exactly. My instructions stand as the best upgrade route.
Quote from: Oya on October 05, 2010, 07:26:45 PMexcept you actually can't use totally fresh modsettings valuessome of the values relate to the current state of the forum, like the current number of posts total, the last registered member, and so onyou're better off just leaving it
Quote from: Kindred on October 05, 2010, 08:32:04 PMsee... I just do not get it. leaving the db will have NO effect.... and there are so many settings for individial users in that table that it would be a nightmare to find the mod type stuff ... and why... I have been running a forum on upgrades for 8 years now with no problems... since 1.0
