Hiya again fellaz. Im actually writing to see how hard it will be to upgrade from 2.02.02 to the latest version of rnuke?

Im currently downloading the package now, and wanted to make sure I go about this the right way before uploading and overwriting all of my current files.

Would it be better for me to just do a fresh install of the latest version, then just import my tables through phpmyadmin to keep my users, and forum posts intact? Are there any changes in the tables from v2.02.02 to the latest rnuke version?

I believe there's an upgrade script in the latest packaging that should upgrade from 2.02.02. I think the upgrade says to clear out the old files before applying the new ones... it's a good practice to do.

Are you talking about the patch in \UtilityFiles?

It says that its for 2.10.00 to 2.10.01 ONLY!

Couldnt I just install the new rnuke in a subdirectory untill i get it installed, and just import my nuke_users, and bb tables or would that not work.

Thx, I did read that, and I think my best bet will be to do a fresh install then slowly move everything over. I have modded our phpbb (with simple subforums mod) and alot of changes to our vwar, and im afraid im gonna lose some of the changes ive made.

Now, if I just create a new db username, and pass and do a clean install in a subfolder, how hard will it be to convert the tables in phpmyadmin (of my old db) to work with this new release of ravenuke. All im interested in is my nuke users, and all of our forum posts.

If I do it this way then once I run into a change that I have personally made (like simple subforums) i should be able to add each change one at a time as I run into them. Then I can just move the subfolder to my public HTML and it should all by fine and dandy right?

So far so good, imported nuke users with no issues (hopefully).

Doing all the bb stuff now, will update.

OK, forums have been imported, and so far everything looks good.

However I am noticing when I try to use our old theme (called Phoenix) none of the images show. I tried to "View Background Image" from my brother, and this is what it says:
You don't have permission to access /cgrnuke/themes/Phoenix/images/header/header_05.jpg on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

Any ideas?

Sounds like a .htaccess file that images/header directory or above it (since Apache "inherits" from above too). You might have a file which has "deny from all" or something like that.

well in the .htaccess installed by rnuke i have this:
Code:
<Files .ftaccess>

  deny from all
</Files>

<Files .staccess>
  deny from all
</Files>

No, you need to start in the /cgrnuke/themes/Phoenix/images/header/ directory and look at each and every .htaccess file from that directory on up.

This might not be it, but this is usually the problem, so need to rule it out first.

Well, so far, i still have no clue.


I even moved the old site completely, and replaced it with the cgrnuke folder (renamed it to public_html, and changed it in the admin preferences)

This is what happens once I do that. . .

With the default .htaccess file in there. . . it does the same thing (doesnt load any images, not even the RN logo on the default install in the News). If I rename .htaccess, it does see the theme, but still does not load any images whatsoever.

Im lost. . . dunno what I did, but at one point it seemed to work, and now its not again.

If you want me to take a look at it, PM me an admin id (don't forget the NukeSentinel part) as well as an FTP id to the root of your nuke so I can check your files and structure.

I think i figured it out. . . was a permissions issue on the folders in the themes folder.

Now, I went ahead and deleted that install, and did an install into my root directory.
Just wanted to verify there are no changes to the nuke_users tables, and the bb tables before I import everything.

ciph3r, the HowToInstall manual's one page on upgrading walks you through this.

If memory serves me, you will need to execute a few steps within installSQL.php for new modules and I know for a fact that the Resend Email add-on mucks with nuke_users_temp, but not nuke_users.

Ok, ive had alotta poo hit the fan here, and havent had time to try jack shiot.

This is what im wanting to do.

Make a new DB, and a new user.
Install my current theme/modules into the new DB.
Install my Simple Subforum mod into the new install.

Convert/downgrade/upgrade my rnuke v2.02.02 to the latest version.
Import it into the new DB, so I dont risk having any downtime at all.

Is this possible?

ciph3r, how you avoid "downtime" is to test your process from start to finish on a locally running version of your site. Get yourself XAMPP and set up your existing site to run on it (its fairly easy to do).

The problem that I see is possibly in the "simple Subforum" piece. Does this require a DB change? If not, then you should be ok.

Test the process out as many times as you need on your PC until you are comfortable that everything will work just fine, then back your production site up and "go for it"!
