Problem Upgrading from Joomla 1.6 Beta to Stable

Post by ayame » Sat Jan 29, 2011 8:57 pm

I have 2 Systems, which I made since the beta of Joomla 1.6

The first is Joomla 1.6 Beta 6,
the second is Joomla 1.6 Beta 7.

The Problem is, that after uploading Joomla 1.6 stable there is an "404" failure. I can login into the Admin Control Panel, but not visit my site.

Is it not possible to upgrade?

Did you also run the database diff SQL's? Changes were made to the structure of the database throughout the beta phase, so you need to apply those changes as well.
