Re: SOLVED: 4.0.5 -> 4.7.1 update problem

jayrope wrote #314906:

FIX:
made two empty files, _to_1.0.0.php and _to_4.0.2.php in update folder.
Then ran /textpattern/update/update.php directly.
Backend shows up, errors are gone for now, txp_prefs says 4.7.1

Great! Have you used _to_4.6.0.php from 4.7.1 or 4.7.2, please?

Re: SOLVED: 4.0.5 -> 4.7.1 update problem

Regarding updating to 4.2.0 first: No i didn’t do this. I am aware that this procedure existed, but the update notes for 4.7.1 have put the note into a subpage so that i has escaped my attention.
:(
What kind of possible errors could i get now?

Thanks, you are the first “live” tester! :-) Hopefully, MySQL 5.3 switch headache is gone in 4.7.2.

Re: SOLVED: 4.0.5 -> 4.7.1 update problem

On a minor note diagnostics tell me, that
- the files directory isn’t writable although permissions are 770 (solved, path was wrong in prefs), and
- “The following PHP functions (which may be necessary to run Textpattern) are disabled on your server: syslog.”

Is that problematic?

Frankly, I don’t remember, Stef (Bloke) is the right person here.

Yes for files upload, no for syslog.

Re: SOLVED: 4.0.5 -> 4.7.1 update problem

Worked for me as well!

#314908:

FIX:
— Uploaded Textpattern 4.7.1 to server
— Made two empty files, _to_1.0.0.php and _to_4.0.2.php in update folder
and used _to_4.6.0.php from dev version 4.7.2 @ github
— Then ran /textpattern/update/update.php directly

Frontend and backend are back, languages are updated, yay!

Hmmm, maybe we shouldn’t have removed them. Perhaps the upgrade script from very old versions expects them to exist for reasons I can’t quite fathom right now. It’s no hardship to add those empty files back into Txp 4.7.2 if it helps upgradeability.

Anyone have any insight why this might be necessary? Or if we can work around it?
