FORUM UPGRADE (MAYBE) TODAY 8:00AM EST TO NOON EST

Post by solarchat » Fri Jan 24, 2014 1:03 pm

Well, it seems that all the work I did getting the new forum ready on the latest version of Joomla and Kunena was a waste of 4 days of coding. You have to go through the intermediate version upgrade process to the latest version in order to save the users and posts. There was a major database restructure in the intermediate version....geeesh!

So, today we are going to try and do the three step upgrade and see if it works...

It may work great, it may not work at all and crash the forum for a couple hours or it may upgrade the forum and some posts between 8 and noon may be lost. I don't know. I can assure you that I will treat every post in here like it is the most important post in the world...(except Jim/Joe's of course) and try and do a full save of everything.

If you can't log on for a little bit, please bare with me and understand that as Dr. McCoy might say..."Dang'it Jim, Im an astronomer not a web designer!"

Keep pedalling.
I feel your pain!!!
Negative comments welcome to aid learning, as competing with Alexandra on her old borrowed equipment means I will always be 3 steps behind.
