Greetings All!

First off, great site, and great work you do here. I've searched around, but this is all still new to me, and I guess asking myself might help me better understand? Sorry.

Currently I'm running a site with php-nuke 6.5, with a few little mods, nothing fancy. I want to redo the site with raven7.6. I'm going to do a fresh "install" as far as files go, but I would like to save posts/users/etc. I've seen people touch on this subject once or twice, but I have a few questions to make it clearer in my own head (which I guess is extra foggy):

1. How do I run a copy on my "local" machine to make sure things work (this may sound lame, but I'm sorta newbish to all these database/php action)?

2. I saw Raven post this elsewhere:

<This is based on a standard 6.5 to 7.0 upgrade. The way I recommend is to

- install my custom database somewhere
- clone your 6.5 database
- run the individual upgrade scripts from FB to bring your database up to 7.0
- backup your clone so that you don't have to go through these steps again in the event of a problem.
- compare tables between the 2 databases (clone and mine) and export any table that is in my custom and not in your clone and import it into your clone.
- export my blocks and modules tables and import them into yours, erasing yours.
- ftp the custom files to your clone site>


Silly questions to this:
1. Custom database? Is this included in the 7.6 pack? Or is it somewhere else?

2. Upgrade scripts from FB? What is FB and such?

Thanks hope I haven't been too much of a bother.


Thank you ahead of time!

Hey Dravin, good to see you here Smile

1) I assume the custom database is what you are running currently
2) FB is the creator of phpNuke. The upgrade scripts are included in your phpNuke package in the upgrades folder. In the RavenNuke package, thats's phpNuke7.6_Docs/upgrades

Morning Evaders/All -

Thanks for the reply.

1) I'm not using anything special for the database. It's just a normal one, I guess you could call it. So I guess like Raven said in that copied post above. I should clone mine/back mine up/upgrade it, and then compare the two? Any suggestions or recommendations for that process? (and where do I find the custom one he mentions).

2) Ah, doi I guess. I found em, I'll run those, one at a time = lots of fun!


Thanks again!

Well I think this is my plan for the weekend:

Let me know if I'm wrong in some steps:

1. I'm going to backup my db (once or twice).

2. Since its a standard php-nuke db (does that matter?), upgrade step by step from 6.5-6.6 to 7.6 and then add in the Raven patches as found in the download section. Or am I missing something? Do I need to do anything between upgrade steps? Log into anything etc?

3. Remove all the server files - then upload the Raven76 package.

Did I miss anything, or does this make sense?

Thanks

Makes sense to me - backups are always helpful.

Good luck, just message me if you need any help
