  • Patching 3.8.7 PL1 to 3.8.7 PL6 question

    Hi all, firstly no groans please because I am so late in patching up , I have uploaded all the patches with overwrite apart from the ones in the install folder, I am unable to do that as I don't have an install folder, do I need the 3 xml's installed if so how do I go about it?

    Kind regards,
    Simon

    Some of the patches between 1 and 6 may require you to run the upgrade.php script. You should upload the entire install folder from your 3.8.7 download package and then upload the files from your patch download. Once that is done run upgrade.php.

    Ultimately, you should plan on a full upgrade to 3.8.11.

      Thanks Wayne, I'm guessing that I couldn't skip straight from PL1 to PL6 then? doing a full upgrade will be a massive headache as I have a few core files that have been modified to allow some modifications to work and I can't go to 3.8.11 as my license only allows up to 3.8.7 PL6

          Those issues would be fixed in later versions of vBulletin. 3.8.7 should run on the version of PHP that you have. Turn off Display Errors within PHP for general use and these will disappear. They are only warnings that the code won't necessarily work in future versions of vBulletin.

            Wayne, thanks for your support, I have turned the errors off in PHP and it's all good, no PHP or MySQL errors
