Beta 2 Site

Post by storming »

Ok,

Muppet i am (and a noob i was in August) but i went live with a Beta 2 version and i would like to up grade.....

I have a 10 meg data file and a 60 meg up load file and over 3000 posts so i dont want to loose my forum... Can i run the version 3 to version 4 script? Will it work?

There must be a way around this so i can get on to Beta 4....

Any suggestions?

You got CVS changelogs, the only way to do that is to create (on your own, obviously) a script to upgrade your version.

Yes, run as far from here as you can before SHS' reads your message and sends his Bertiezilla-troopers to shoot you down. ;)
As drf said, you are on your own. This was stated all throughout the beta phase exactly in order to avoid this. On your own really means on your own (or you rely on some pious soul to read this message and send you a PM). Good luck.

And surely once you've worked out on your own how to transfer across, you'd be better off waiting to do it to RC1 so you'll have a guaranteed proper upgrade path from that point on and never ask these silly questions again?

That would be a sensible move but they are officially offering support for this now i understand...

Also, it may seem silly to you but it is serious to me!

You didn't understand what "Don't use in a live environment" meant?

Eh...he got impatient and decided to try something he probably knew he shouldn't try.

Now he's gotta lay in the bed he made. Simple as that.
