This is a full step by step tutorial showing how to upgrade from TP 0.9.8 to TP 1.0.X. This is the simplest most effective way to upgrade, and makes sure there is no leftover TP codes.
I take NO RESPONSIBILITY
if you do something incorrectly and something wrong happens to your forum.
I recommend reading the entire tutorial before beginning just to make sure you understand each step before you proceed. In addition, a full backup of your DATABASE and your SMF installation would be a wise decision. As you can't downgrade TP 1.0.X back to TP 0.9.8WARNING:
Using this method to upgrade will remove all modifications you have currently, but reinstalling your mods should leave whatever settings you previously had.STEP 1
Download TP 1.0.X from TinyPortalSTEP 2
Download the LARGE UPGRADE
Now you have all the necessary scripts needed to upgrade your forum.STEP 3
What you need to do next is unzip the LARGE UPGRADE package that you previously downloaded from SMF.
Many of the files in the LARGE UPGRADE package are NOT
needed so lets clean up the folders before FTPing them to your server.
DO NOT DELETE ANYTHING FROM YOUR SERVER!!! WHERE IT SAYS DELETE, THAT MEANS FROM THE UPGRADE PACKAGE YOU DOWNLOAD FROM SMF, NOT YOUR SERVER!!!
In the main directory of the SMF LARGE UPGRADE that you just unzipped you should see these files and folders
DELETE these FOLDERS
DELETE these FILES
Now the main directory of the unzipped SMF Upgrade should have this left over
Now you are ready to proceed to the next step.STEP 4
Upload all the remaining files and folders from the smf_1-1-X_upgrade folder and overwrite the files that you currently have on your server. STEP 5
On your server in the Packages directory, delete the installed.list file.
The installed.list contains all your previous mod installations, and this will make your package manager show that your mods are installed when in actuality they are not because you overwrote all the SMF files with clean unmodified files.STEP 6
Upload the latest TinyPortal using the package manager and install!STEP 7
