I reverted back to .9 version. I think I will have to incrementally upgrade. My question is what versions do I use to upgrade incrementally?
I am slowly making my way through this. Upgraded one forum from .9, to .9.07, to 1.1, keeping all the data. Then on the next forum from .9 to .9.07, keeping all the data. But when I tried to upgrade 1.1, it lost all the data. It thought it was an clean install, asked for more information than the other forum upgrade. So I reverted back to .9.07 where it found all the data. Then I uploaded 1.1 again, keeping the old config file, made sure I put in bb-admin/upgrade.php. It asked for a new config, so I put it in, then I reloaded bb-admin/upgrade.php. It said there was nothing left to upgrade; all my data was missing. So I deleted again, back to .9.07 where it found my data. I checked my config file, the table prefix is correct. What did I do in the first forum that it did an actual upgrade to 1.1?
Would I have to go into the database to delete the new entries so it will see the old entries? What am I looking for exactly?
Or can I delete something in the bbpress files?
It’s the htaccess file, I have to delete and reinstall the old version, isn’t! I feel like I’m the only one on this damn board!!! If someone could have only told me this sooner. Now school is out, and the internet hub for our area is overloaded, slower than molasses.
It not that either. Can someone please give a suggestion?
You can try forumconverter plugin…some people have had some luck with it…downgrade to v2 or RC before importing, though…you can upgrade to latest version after the import…
