UpGrading to 2.5 ...

Well, years of sticking to 1.3 are over.
My server has not answered my questions about 2
of my scripts stopping. 2 versions of yabb 1.3 ...
Hundreds of other scripts still running as designed.

I wondered if there is any advice on importing the messages and
member list into a YaBB 2.5.

I doubt i can run an upgrade, so i will have to do a fresh install ...
Then write a tool or something to import all of the stuff.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.


Off Topic ...

After 11 years of intense study ...
I now have 5 different servers.

The one that i say is a good value, but treats their clients
like chumps, is catalog.com now known as webhero.

I know, i know, they are the oldest and the longest
at virtual servers.  Blah, Blah, Blah ...

None of my other servers treat me like a chump.

Webhero's staff has way too much attitude to recommend.
Bruce is a jerk.
Their staff lies and pokes fun at their clients.

I have been an engineer for over 30 years and
have never been treated like a chump every time
i contact tech support at webhero.
I have been with catalog.com/webhero for over 10 years
and the only one that ever helped, is with their accounting..
Melba or something like that.

My suggestion would be to first try to upgrade the normal way. which would involve installing a new, clean copy of YaBB 2, and getting it set up properly, then putting all of your current member files into the Convert folder and running setup a second time, so it can change some of the text files which are now set up in different ways.

Most of the time, the convert process is pretty darn smooth.

Full details, both on the regular installation and the conversion process are included in the html quick guide inside the install package.

Now up and running again, with an accurate link.

I guess someone told them of my post and
they said they are taking care of the problem. ..  ...

Yep, bruce handled it himself and my server has been
down all day...


Talk, Talk Talk. ..  ...

I can't imagine running a business like that.
