This happened on my other 7.7.1 -> 7.7.3 upgrade and I didn't report it, figuring it might have been a permissions issue. But this time I explicitly set the entire forum structure to wide open before I began, just to see.

I get to the language step. I tell it to update my language files. It gets to the next page and says:

english language files have been updated.

It just sits there with no button or option. I let it sit for a half hour while I worked on other things.

URL is /forum/install/upgrade.php

So then I hit "back" to the page with all the language string windows. I tell it again to update my language files.

Same thing (definition of insanity). It just gives me that one sentence with a lowercase E in English (ahem) and sits there.

So I click BACK and tell it I've updated them by hand.

Now it gives me errors on this set. I have to manually update these myself.


String not updated: $ubbt_lang['BOX_NAME'] = "Island Name";

Having to do this manually is the only reason I saw that mess_reply.php typo entry previously. Normally I don't stare at the text in these files smile.
