I simply love RN. I guess I have been updating sentinel and phpbb over the past year or so. I just now looked and seen RN v2.20.01 is the latest version Embarassed
I would love to upgrade to the latest from my current version (I think) is RN v2.0.02?

Can anyone let me know the best way to attack this? Can I upgrade to the latest RN v2.20.01 from RN v2.00.02, or do I need to upgrade to 2.10 then to 2.20.01? Thanks so much in advance!

No need to upgrade in steps. Just use the latest full package.
If you have any mods or customizations, you may need to reinstall them.

milenko, correct on NS and phpBB. Just follow the instructions on Upgrading that are in the provided HowToInstall manual.

HOWEVER, since you are so far behind - Sad - I would also suggest that you perform a test upgrade first using a copy of your site onto XAMPP on your local PC! Also, do not gloss over the part about taking backups of your database and files BEFORE you upgrade. Wink

thanks montego! Here lies the problem, I have never setup a XAMPP and I just moved to a new server because my last one disapeared 7 months into my hosting. The good news is I have a fresh backup of everything as of right now incase something goes screwy on me.

Would it seem like a good idea to just upload the latest rnuke then just upload my database over it, or are the prefix's different in the latest version?

Nervous now Crying or Very sad

BTW no props for keeping sentinel and phpbb up to date? Wink

I did a quick search on google for XAMPP and found it. Thanks. I have an extra old laptop laying around, and I would like to install Linux on it can you suggest a version of Linux to install as a OS, then I will put XAMPP on it. Thanks again!

Xampp works perfect on windows. Even on my Vista 64b
Linux has it's own apache + php+ mysql + all the toys you need.....
Ubuntu server edition, or Fedora 8 are good linux choice.

You don't need *nix to install XAMPP.
XAMPP will run under windows and give you everything you need.

I'm scared to death about upgrading.

steve_lemaster, the only thing to fear is fear itself.... with a local copy of your site running on XAMPP (actually the components of it), you can try and try and try and try all you want until you get it right. Then you have the process down to apply on your live site.

Don't be afraid my friend... step out of the comfort zone... stretch your limits... blah blah blah blah, but do so locally. Wink

Well, I got XAMPP installed and running. IIRC, don't I have to copy my site into one of the directories in XAMPP?

XAMPP's Apache is "homed" under xampp/htdocs. You can build off of that directory as many sites as you wish. Just give each one a different directory name. I would at least set it up with way even if you currently have only ONE site as you will quickly find a need for more... Wink

Ok. Did that.

Now, I get a MySQL error and that was the issue I have always had, because I don't know how to fix it.

It's the standard error that reoprts not being able to connect to the MySQL database.

I think I may have to make some changes to the confog.php file.

Closing up shop and will get you more accurate description when I get home.

Yes, you'll likely have to change the config.php file. By default the database user under XAMPP is root with no password.

config.php file found!
I was unable to reach your MySQL server using the MySQL connection settings in your nuke config.php file. The exact error message that your MySQL server reported is Access denied for user 'global_nuke1'@'localhost' (using password: YES).


This is the part that I could never get right. Here is what I have in config.php

Code:
$dbhost = "localhost";

$dbuname = "xampp_nuke1";
$dbpass = "";
$dbname = "xampp_nuke1";
$prefix = "xampp";
$user_prefix = "xampp";
$dbtype = "MySQL";
$sitekey = "SwSDsyrrOQu3k7oOkKB2Df/%(-0394·$%/";
$gfx_chk = 0;
$subscription_url = "";
$admin_file = "admin";
$tipath = "images/topics/";

I don't know how to make it connect to the database.

Where is it? Where do I put it? How do I install it?

This part of XAMPP has always caused me to walk away from it.

As per the Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login! manual's instructions, you must first have created a database and user, and then given that user permissions to that database.

With XAMPP, you can use phpMyAdmin to do this. I think you can access it via the following URL:

You should see an option to create a database and then you go to Permissions to create your user.

Did that.

It's the tables that I am having issues with.

When I modify the config.php, I can never get it to connect even though the set up sees it.

So, obviously, I am missing something in the database setup in phpMyAdmin.

I finally got it up and running, however, I receive this line at the top of the page:

Warning: include_once(modules/RWH_WhoIsWhere/includes/RWH_wiw.inc.php) [function.include-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in C:\xampp\htdocs\index.php on line 41

Warning: include_once() [function.include]: Failed opening 'modules/RWH_WhoIsWhere/includes/RWH_wiw.inc.php' for inclusion (include_path='.;C:\xampp\php\pear\') in C:\xampp\htdocs\index.php on line 41


I removed that line and I still receive it.

How do I remove it?

Fixed it.

I love Nuke. I only wish I could code it.

Wow, I step away for awhile and look at the progress! Lesson for me: step away more often. Laughing

Good job steve_lemaster! :clap:
