Upgrade problem



I can't believe I did it, but I overlooked the path that is in lib-common.php when I did the upgrade. I got an error, then fixed the path. When I tried the upgrade again, I get this error: "1050: Table 'gl_syndication' already exists".

The site seems to work, but how can I know if there is not a DB problem deep down? How can I find out if the upgrade completed? What does success look like?

You should be fine. The last step on both the original install and on an upgrade is to display the success.php - and only then would you get an error if you forgot to set the path in lib-common.php.

Of course, you could always restore your database backup and do the upgrade again ...

bye, Dirk


Just to be sure I did restore the db backup and did the upgrade again, this time it worked fine, and I got the success page. Thanks for the help and the super-rapido response!
