Upgrading from 2.3 to 2.5 Issues
Aug 23rd, 2010 at 5:29am
Post Tools
I am upgrading from 2.3 to 2.5 and I have uploaded all the files and changed all permissions but I have 2 issues:

1) When I go to the AdminIndex I am asked to update my session, which I do, but it keeps sending me back to this page.

2) At the top of the page I see:

"No Masterkey was set in the Security Settings/Validation Image section of the Admin Center
Now using default value which is less safe!!"

Any help on these issues is greatly appreciated.

Another issue is that I do not see any list of styles in the default drop-down on the Forum Settings page.

In Admin Center - Security Settings - Validation tab
Quote:
Set a masterkey for encryption
A random text string (> 8 and < 24 characters long)

  Not understood ?  On Forum Settings page the only selection is the Template Setting.  2 to choose from

This helped Thank!

One other minor issue. At the op I get the message:

There are 2 validated Registrants awaiting approval.

I go to the admin and see only 1 registrant. I validate him, and use the clean up method, so there are no more entries on the admin page, but the top of the forum page still says there is 1 registrant awaiting approval.

How do I correct this count?

You probably have a user that registered, but never validated in your Y2.3 forum.  Simply access your ./Members folder and delete any *.pre files.
