Upgrade/Installation Problems

I just went through the upgrade instructions located here, http://www.zenphoto.org/news/installation-and-upgrading#2, and when I got to step 6, got many errors in the systems check. I have copy/pasted the results into a text file but don't see a way to attach anything, should I just paste them here?

My host installed the original version, and I renamed the themes and zp-core folders before uploading the latest version in case there was a problem, was hoping I could just delete or rename the new uploaded folders and rename the original ones back if something went wrong. Searched for some of the issues that turned up, for example, it told me to search for 'What is magic_quotes_gpc and why should it be disabled', and though I'm finding some posts regarding it, they don't seem to answer the question. Since I did not install the original, I don't know if these issues were there all along or if only the upgrade caused them. Where should I be looking for assistance, and is there a way to attach a file, or should I paste the results here? Thank you for any help.

    It is not possible to attach files to the forum (for good reasons as you might understand). But you can paste them here.

    Most errors or warnings are explained on setup itself and some may not be explained on our site as they are not Zenphoto specific.

    Why magic quotes should be disabled is explained on our troubleshooting (sic!) amongst other things. Please read there first.
  • Thank you, understand completely about attaching files. I temporarily moved the new folders to another location and renamed the original install folders (themes and zp-core are the new ones I uploaded via FTP after renaming the original install folders to xx_themes and xx_zp-core when first installing the update) and I'm back at the place where the host installed, and everything seems as it was before I tried the update. I will go through the troubleshooting guide for each of the warnings I got and have pasted below (blanked out database name) in case some of the questions are ones my host will need to answer, any tips as to what to ask them would be appreciated.

    Systems Check:

    * Updating current Zenphoto release
    * PHP version 5.3.3
    * PHP Safe Mode
    * PHP magic_quotes_gpc [is enabled]
    Warning! You should consider disabling magic_quotes_gpc. For more information See What is magic_quotes_gpc and why should it be disabled? in the Zenphoto troubleshooting guide.
    * Graphics support: PHP GD library bundled (2.0.34 compatible)
    * PHP gettext() support [is not present]
    Warning! Localization of Zenphoto currently requires native PHP gettext() support
    * PHP mbstring package [Your internal character set is ISO-8859-1]
    Warning! Setting mbstring.internal_encoding to UTF-8 in your php.ini file is recommended to insure accented and multi-byte characters function properly.
    * PHP MySQL support
    * PHP PDO_MySQL support for configured Database
    * PDO_SQLite support (experimental)

    SQLite is a limited database and does not support all Zenphoto functionality. Use of this database is for Database abstraction proof of concept only.

    * zp-config.php file
    * File/Folder Permissions [are strict (0755)] Notice! click for details
    Notice!

    If file and folder permissions are not set to strictor tighter there could be a security risk. However, on some serversZenphoto does not function correctly with tight file/folderpermissions. If Zenphoto has permission errors, run setup again andselect a more relaxed permission.

    You must be logged in to change permissions.

    * Database setup in zp-config.php
    * PDO::MySql version 5.0.77-log
    Warning! Version 5.0 or greater is required. Use a lower version at your own risk.
    Version 5.1 or greater is preferred.
    * Connect to the database
    Warning! Could not access the PDO_MySQL database (d_______). Check the user, password, database name, and Database host.
    Make sure the database has been created and that u_______ has access to it.
    * SQL mode
    * Database access rights
    * SHOW TABLES [found no tables]
    * Database field collations
    * Zenphoto core files [Some files are missing or seem wrong]
    Warning! Perhaps there was a problem with the upload. You should check the following files:

  • I've just recently begun using Zenphoto, and joined here.
    However, I did make a post on upgrading documentation because my host installed it automatically for me, and it was the last release not the latest. But, I've not been able to view any of the page links I've found on here. I need advice, so thought I'd link my post here as well:http://www.zenphoto.org/support/topic.php?id=9091. Since I'm new idk when they'll show up, but I can't find advice anywhere I've looked.
    Also, the page for 'forum rules and resources' (http://www.zenphoto.org/support/topic.php?id=3760) only returned a page stating: Topic not found. Do these issues have anything to do with the migration process from WordPress, mentioning 'broken links, glitches or else we missed (we surely did miss something!) let us know on the forum.', which is located here: http://www.zenphoto.org/news/zenphoto.org-now-zenphoto-only ...?

    Thanks for help/advice in advance. I really like Zenphoto, and I'm basically just using for my wife at the moment as a private subdomain for select family n friends; but, she's a cake decorator and I hope to make it as nice as possible for her, and evolve it into something spectacularly extravagant to display her work, not just photos shes done for/of our children, family, and friends.

    There is a link to the forum rules in the footer:
    http://www.zenphoto.org/support/topic.php?terms-of-service=display

    As said on the othe topic I am not able to reproduce issues with the urls. We did change our site but it is all working for me/us. I have no idea what this could cause for some visitors. I still assume it is a browser cache isseu that maybe stored the old site in case you visited us before.
  • Could also be downstream caching, maybe by the hosting service or some other intermediary.
  • acrylian Administrator
    Well, see my comment on the site change topic. It was indeed my fault.

    The forum rules link was indeed outdated in one place and that is fixed now as well.
  • Thanks guys.
    I can now view both.
    My browser cache had been cleared, but didn't help;
    Waited a day or so and now the pages are visible to me
