Content not found when converting from SP 1.3.1 Goldo to 2.5
G'day guys Cool...
I want to put alive again my old BB which was on Yabb 1.3.1 Gold (actually is nor working anymore..I dunno why..meyab it has been hacked?!)..
I installed a new version of YABB 2.5 which is correctly working..
than I uploaded the contents of /Boards, /Members, /Messages and /Variables to /cgi-bin/yabb2/Convert

The issue is that when I run Setup.pl, it ask for the Directory..and either I put ./Convert or /Convert it shows me these messages..
(if I put ./Convert):

An Error Has Occurred!
Directory: ./Convert/Members No such file or directory

(if I put /Convert):
An Error Has Occurred!
Directory: /Convert/Boards No such file or directory


This is wierd as I can see these directories on the FTP..



I've CHMOD all contents of /Boards, /Members and Messages at 777 while /Variables is it just wiht the file cat.txt at 666


Any ideas or suggestions?! Maybe the original files are corrupted? Embarrassed

Thanks for any kind support or help..
CHeers and have a wonderfule week.

Simo

Hi pacchiosa
to update from 1.3.1 to 2.5 you will have to update to 2.3.1 then to 2.5
as 2.4 and 2.5 have a problem with setup Converting
there is a beta 2.5.2 will be on the download page here soon where setup is fixed for for 1x to 2.5.2 with no need for the "2.3.1 fix" the link to the beta 2.5.2 is http://testbed.dandello.net/downloads/index.shtml with all info you need  Wink

as to
Quote:
An Error Has Occurred!
Directory: ./Convert/Members No such file or directory

(if I put /Convert):
An Error Has Occurred!
Directory: /Convert/Boards No such file or directory


if i remember correctly this will be down to a .htaccess in the dir for them or a missing file
if you need i can resetup your 1.3.1 forum on your host that will let you have a look at it also fix anything you need then it can be upgraded for you.

Re: Content not found when converting from SP 1.3.1 Goldo to 2.5
Dear xnoddyx  Cool

thank you so much for your suport..
we installed 2.5.2 without any issues.. Smiley

However while uploading the 1.3.1 old /Members dirctory in the new /Convert folder we noticed that 15,000 files were there..(3,5 Mb contents)..pls see below for content example..

So we think that as the old 1.3.1 was still online and never got updated since logtime someone HACKED the board...actually now is impossibile to get access to the board..also if we register a new user , after having inserted the correct credentials it is impossible to get access.only the sign in page always shows up

Please let us now how we can do the conversion, as we are just interested in retrievieng the old posts and messages in the new board without granting access to the former members...

Maybe a backup could help, but we are not sure if we could find it...
cheers and have a nice week  Cool  Wink

Re: Content not found when converting from SP 1.3.1 Goldo to 2.5
the 1.3.1 forum was in need of repair and missing the main admin account fixed all this then run full maintenance for the forum then made the upgrade to 2.5.2 forum now running good.  Cool
