How to convert/upgrade
« on: December 22, 2018, 08:38:47 AM »
Hello,

At first excuse me for my bad English.

I have a SMF forum of my wife in version 1.1.20 and sources 1.16, templates 1.1.5, language 1.1 and template 1.1. The template are handmad ed by me and someone else.

Now I must move the forum from one provider to a new one. The new provider has SMF 2.0.15 at Installtron.

How can I update the old environment to the new version?

Thanks for tips and support.

Grtz Wil

For upgrading you run upgrade.php after uploading all the 2.0 files over your 1.1 files.

Note, that all mods and themes will need to be either reinstalled with 2.0 compatible versions or re-created again because 1.1 customisations wont work.

Do not use the installtron thing.     Do your upgrade following the process listed in our online manual
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.

Moving and upgrading are two separate things.  You can upgrade at current host then move to new host, or move first then upgrade at new host.

What versions of PHP are available at the old host and what versions are available at the new host?

Since the old one is running 1.1 and the new one support 2.0, it would probably be easier to move first - upgrade later.

 Happily running multiple SMF 2.0 installations.

How you can help SMF

"Before you allow people access to your forum, especially in an administrative position, you must be aware that that person can seriously damage your forum.
 Therefore, you should only allow people that you trust, implicitly, to have such access." -Douglas
