Not sure where to post this... I have backed up my forum, and through the "Package Manager" I updated the patch.. said it was successfully uploaded... when I clicked install this mod... I got this message.

"Error in Package Installation
At least one error was encountered during a test installation of this package. It is strongly recommended that you do not continue with installation unless you know what you are doing, and have made a backup very recently. This error may be caused by a conflict between the package you're trying to install and another package you have already installed, an error in the package, a package which requires another package that you don't have installed yet, or a package designed for another version of SMF." 

I had version 2.02  can you let me know this reason for this error.. ?

during the test run, this was the results..

Execute Modification                    ./index.php                      Test successful
   2.   Execute Modification   ./SSI.php                              Test successful

   7.   Execute Modification   ./Sources/QueryString.php   Test successful
   8.   Execute Modification   ./Sources/Load.php                   Test failed
   1.   Replace                           ./Sources/Load.php                   Test successful
   2.   Replace                           ./Sources/Load.php             Test failed
   3.   Replace                           ./Sources/Load.php                   Test failed
   4.   Replace                           ./Sources/Load.php                   Test failed
   5.   Replace                           ./Sources/Load.php                   Test failed

a quick response would be great, since i now have my forum closed from members until i can update it...

Thank you,

You already applied the fix for the intermittent session verification errors.
The how to proceed is another thing: you can apply the patch ignoring the errors (and then you can verify the changes are in place accordingly to the patch, or you can revert your changes and apply the patch.

Issue. I went ahead and scheduled the update. I was notified by email of it's successful installation. Now, I find that all of the mods that I had downloaded and installed onto my site are no longer installed. When I attempt to re-install them from my package manager, it tells me that the directory isn't writeable. I've had this issue for a while and no one seems to be able to figure it out. GoDaddy says that it's not a hosting issue so, they can't help me. No one on here has been able to help me address it and until recently, I've just been willing to limp along without downloading anything else. Now, I want my mods back. Any thoughts as to why the update might have uninstalled my mods?

The update is a mod, it doesn't uninstall anything.

Unless it was carried out as the small or large update (rather than the package manager version)... in which case it would have removed things.

But not from the database. (AFAIR not even running upgrade.php, but I may be wrong)

I probably misinterpreted that one. O:)

Thank you, SMF!

It would have been more difficult to fall off a log than it was to upgrade this software. When I saw the upgrade notice in my email Inbox, I cringed... bad memories of phpBB. ;) This upgrade could not have been simpler!

An outstanding product with fabulous support! Thanks so much SimpleMachines Forums.

Here's wishing the entire SMF staff and community a wonderful, blissful, safe, and warm Holiday Season! :)

We're very glad to hear that your upgrade process went smoothly :) Thank you for stopping by and posting your feedback!

Well said, my sentiments exactly... I see some newbies have made sort of a bad move by not examining the instructions in the package manager message more closely. Normally you won't want to actually do a manual download & install unless it becomes absolutely necessary when you have a number of third party mods installed, and even if you do, it's essential to uninstall them all first... I have quite a number of mods and have been running SMF several years now and learned the hard way about updates, it's normally very safe to use the embedded link in the message itself and this time is no exception...
Best Regards,
Bob Perry

One of the few times that you'll need to grab something from the Downloads page would be a major version upgrade (ie. SMF 1.x -> SMF 2.0.x.)

I update the version of the repair_settings.php file that I keep on hand after an update to make sure I can do that with the latest version available if necessary (usually not)...

I'm in the market for some help with a new paying project idea that I have, a new boardgame module involving dice... if you are interested PM me or visit my site...

I use an SEO mod called "SMF Packs". Should I first delete this mod in order to make an update to smf 2.0.3.?

Did you get the notification in the admin panel?
Did you try to click on the "update your forum" link?
