The problem I have, is I want to upgrade to the latest version. So I downloaded my site files and database to do a trial upgrade using xampp.

But I get an error
Quote:

A clean 2.20.01 works fine which makes me think the xampp server is ok. But I can't find any cgi scripts either. Shocked

So I was thinking of a clean install of v2.02.02 then use winmerge to find differences.

Unless anyone has an easier or quicker solution.

Nothing too complicated though. I've picked up bits of knowledge but am no expert. Very Happy

Thanks

rebelt, when do you get this error? Also, is that the complete error text or was there more?

You may also have a corrupt file from your transfer or maybe there is some directive in your .htaccess XAMPP isn't liking.

Sorry, at this time, not sure and I don't think getting a clean install of 2.02.02 is going to help you any.

That is a completely different error than the original one you posted. For this new one, what was the full URL that you were attempting to access?

What URL? Do you get it just going to index.php?

If so, try renaming the .htaccess file under your root of this web site to something else and try again and let us know what happens then.

Renamed the .htaccess file (this actually had no name, just HTACCESS file as the type)

I now get a header and left blocks only

Actually, ".htaccess" is its full name, but that is only semantics. You have gotten further along now.

Ok, lets try this. You are going to have to modify your apache configuration file. Find your XAMPP installation directory, and the the file:

apache/conf/httpd.conf

Open that file with a good text editor, such as Notepad++ (do NOT use just windows Notepad - EVER!).

Make sure you have these directives and values within this file. Do NOT just add them. You need to find if the statements already exist (you are trying to find the section of the conf file where these are at - closest match). Do make sure to save off your file prior to editing!

Code:



<Directory />
    Options FollowSymLinks
    AllowOverride All
</Directory>

<FilesMatch "^\.ht">
    Order allow,deny
    Deny from all
</FilesMatch>


Once this file is saved, you will need to restart apache.

If you still only get the header and left blocks, you will need to set within the config.php file of your nuke install $display_errors = true;. Then see if a PHP error is shown. If so, report back with the complete text.

Sorted.

The $display_errors setting told me there was a problem in a custom block which was calling to the site database not the localhost one.

It then pulled up the same errors in other custom blocks.

Also noticed that phpmyadmin wasn't happy with the database size when imported. Missed a couple of tables as well as some data in tables.

Have to use bigdump next time.

I now have a site which I can press on with the upgrade attempt.

Many thanks for your help montego.

Well the upgrade went smoothly.

Time to do it again before I upgrade the live site.

Thanks again to montego for his help.
