Update from 2.1.10 to 2.2b1 Problem
OK, lets make a new entry for this...
As described here, I have some update Issues with the new 2.2b1 Version:
I did the steps as told by @Linc in the above discussion:
- Made a working copy of my Forum (changed also the database connection in config.php to the database copy)
- Backup database, .htaccess and conf/config.php
- Upload the new release's files so they overwrite the old ones.
But on step 4: "Go to yourforum.com/utility/update to force any updates needed."
I get an Browser error: "This webpage has a redirect loop"...
And there I'm stuck...
I did not post this on Github, it's most certainly my error somehow...
I also have to mention, the Copy is on the same Website as the working Forum, but in an other Folder... maybe Cookie Problems?? (p.s.: I did clear the Cookies)
The link to the Copy is http://www.caba.de/tmp/copyforum/
I am updating from Version 2.1.10,
Opera, Firefox and Iron as Browser
PHP Version 5.4.36-0+deb7u3
MySQL Server Version: 5.5.41-0+wheezy1
as @Linc sugested, I'll look into the php error log.... when I find out where it is...
## BUT HERE IS ANOTHER IDEA:
To checkout the new Forum, I did a clean Install of it to play around... and it works flawlessly...
Could I just EXPORT my Database and then IMPORT it in the new Forum?? I tried that with the SQL Exportfile from phpmyadmin but thats not working.. Should I use the Porter?
That could be a second and maybe easy solution?
Thanks in advance...
