Unable to upgrade from 1.5.22 to 1.6

Post by ahtasham82 » Tue Feb 01, 2011 2:01 pm


I am trying to upgrade my installation of 1.5 to 1.6. I installed the jupgrade and it said all setup but...I am trying to run it and its not showing anything...It suppose to create a new db but I checked and there is no new db...i downloaded the configuration file and it has the db access information to my original db that I wanted to upgrade...even if so I cant access the administration part via my username/password...

this all means that its not setup right ???

I guess that the installation process couldnt create the new db for some permission and now its not working so any guess how to fix it...

Looking for a quick response.

Do you 'need' to upgrade to 1.6? That seems to be the standard answer now. If you don't need to upgrade to 1.6 then don't, wait for 1.8.

If you don't ask....
Help yourself, use Firebug with Firefox
