Updating Problems #103224

We are currently using version 5.47c and I was trying to upgrade to version 6.x. I followed the instructions carefully and uploaded all the files the way the instructions stated. I got stuck on step 5. It says I need to check Perl paths.

Check Perl paths for these files: ultimatebb.cgi, cp.cgi, ubb_upgrade.cgi, and hello.cgi. None of the other cgi files requires a Perl path. Use the same Perl path that your current UBB.classicâ„¢ scripts use.

You can test your permissions now by uploading ubb6_test.cgi (located in the help directory of your zip file) in ASCII to your UBB.classicâ„¢ cgi directory and running the tests."

There is no "ubb6_test.cgi" file in the help directory. There is a "ubbclassic_test.cgi" file though. I uploaded that into the cgi directory and tried to access it. My browser says "Server Error."

This is as far as I got on my installation. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Yes, those docs require updating. I'll make sure that's done...

ubbclassic_test.cgi has replaced ubb6_test.cgi.

Please continue with the upgrade at step 6 - there's no need to use the test scripts unless required down the line.

If you have continued problems with your upgrade, you may wish to consider opening up a support ticket so we can check out your board.
