Finally getting to upgrade from 7.7.3 to 7.7.4.

Closed forum and uploaded unzipped files per the upgrade instructions. I did not upload the language files since the instructions say the upgrader would take care of it. I did not update the cache_builders/custom/, includes or styles/wrappers.php,

Ran upgrade.php

The screen immediately updated to read: "Upgrade Complete - Congratulations. You have successfully updated to UBB.threads 7.7.3." [Expected it to say 7.7.4.]

I went through each directory and compared the dates for the newly uploaded files. They were correct.

Any idea what I missed? Thanks!

Thanks to UBB. It makes our community.

Try deleting your existing /install folder and uploading a fresh copy of the /install folder from the v7.7.4 upgrade archive.

Thank you, Gizmo.

I deleted the /install directory. Verified it was gone. Re-uploaded the /install from the unzipped 7.7.4 directory. Reran upgrade.php.

Same result.

With the v7.7.4 installer index file (install/index.php) it should display:
Quote
Welcome to the Upgrade/Install Utility for UBB.threads
Upgrade UBB.threads from a previous version

Version checks:
• Database structure version: 7.7.4
• Script version from database: 7.7.4
• Script version from filesystem: 7.7.4

Continuing will perform the following tasks:
• Upgrade your current version of UBB.threads to UBB.threads 7.7.4.
• Retain your current forum threads, posts, users and other information.
It should not display v7.7.3 in the version checks unless you're on 7.7.3, and v7.7.4 should display for "with the..." heading and "upgrade yoru current version to 7.7.4"

Gizmo

The https://www.ubbcentral.com/doc_upgrade7.php under "Performing the Upgrade" says to go to /install/upgrade.php

Above you referenced running /install/index.php.

Can you please confirm that I should be running /install/index.php and not /upgrade.php before I take that step?

Thanks!

/install/index.php will tell you what task you need to complete; if it sees an existing install it'll direct you to the upgrade steps, and in any case it'll give you feedback about your current/new version... So yes, please access /install/index.php as requested to share the information from that page.

Gizmo,

I ran /install/index.php

I did nothing else (I did not click "Continue"). It says it will upgrade to 7.7.3, which is the version I'm at. So I'm missing something.

Thanks!

some commentary:

/install/install.php will dump you right in to the install without performing and of the pre-check items.
/install/upgrade.php will dump you right in to the upgrade script without performing any of the pre-check items.
/install/index.php will perform and display the pre-checks and will take you to the correct path based on those checks

* If you visit install.php or upgrade.php directly, and the process is not correct for you, then you will be told that its not correct, but you will not get a summery of your current environment .
* If you visit index.php, you will get a summary of your current environment before proceeding to what is correct for you.

This is new as of version 7.6.2 (2018-09-18), I do believe that the text of UBBCentral's version upgrade docs were neglected to reflect that installer/upgrader improvement.

I am updating those online right now.
Thank you for pointing this out to us


edit: fixed
again, thank you thumbsup

Well, the system is saying that you're running the v7.7.3 installer if this line says v7.7.3:

Thanks Gizmo and Isaac,

What do you recommend? Should I re-upload everything and try again?

I'd download a fresh copy of the v7.7.4 upgrade archive from UBBCentral and then delete the install folder on your server and upload the fresh installer files from that new archive (FYI, I always upload the language files from the archive)...

My upgrade instructions are available on UBBWiki here and can differ from the instructions available at UBBCentral.

Gizmo,

You were correct.

That worked perfectly.

Congratulations. You have successfully updated to UBB.threads 7.7.4.
For security, please remove the entire install directory.

Thanks!
