my forum has fallen and it won't get up
Seriously people, how hard can it be to upgrade Vanilla. I downloaded the zip onto my webserver, unpacked it, removed the /conf/ and /extensions/ folders and tried to copy it over the top of my old installation. But the file system wouldn't let me... giving "directory is not empty" as its reason. How annoying. So.. I proceed to copy the my /conf/ and /extensions/ folders over into the unpacked Vanilla.1.0.1 directory, renamed the old /forum/ to /old_forum/ and renamed /Vanilla.1.0.1/ to /forum/. With me so far? I should now have a 1.0.1 install in the same place as my old one with all my old settings and extensions. I try and browse the forum, slap, "403 Forbidden". Ah ok, it's a permissions thing - [reads documentation] - chmod 666 the forum/conf/ folder and it's contents, try to browse forum, slap, "403 Forbidden", try to up the permissions on the conf files - "access denied". Try to "ls -al forum/conf" - "access denied".... WTF... So now I have two broken installations of Vanilla, neither of which I can access the conf folder to recover my settings.... :( Why can't the "check for upgrades" button actually do the bloody upgrade! It's going to take me hours of mucking around with a slow SSH prompt to fix this :( grump grump grump
