mxBB 2.7.7 is out

Postby dcz » Tue Jul 04, 2006 10:09 pm

Just to remind all mxBB user that mxBB 2.7.7 was just released.

I strongly recommend you to upgrade as soon as possible, as always.

No DB changes besides the version number.

The update is as easy as always.

The full mxBB 2.7.7 package

To upgrade, check the install/mx_upgrade_changes_between_2.7.6-pl2_and_2.7.7.html file.

If you have modded those file, winmerge is you friend, if not, just overwrite the listed files.

Well this one is not that hard.

If you did not mod the files, as easy as uploading files.

I don't know about the cache, to my reminds there was a problem with the news_suite module with it, and it was working without.

So the news_suite was not updated so far, you'll have to check, but I think as well something was written about how to use cache with the news_suite at www.mx-system.com as ask there if you don't find.

Did you run the upgrade script ?

For the hacking attempt, is your phpBB up to date ?

I edit my files with winmerge (thanks for that tool) and then I follow
Changed/Added/Removed files between 2.7.6-pl2 and 2.7.7

Note: The following instructions are part of our global upgrade procedure described in the Release Notes! Please make backups before attempting an upgrade!



Using your FTP client of choice (or File Manager, if your webserver is local), point yourself into the directory where your mxBB-Portal is installed and remove the following files:

* WARNING: Do NOT confuse with the same/similar files/folders in the phpBB directory !!!

DELETE common.php
DELETE login.php
DELETE mx_announce.php
DELETE mx_forum.php
DELETE mx_menu_nav.php
DELETE mx_multiple_blocks.php
DELETE mx_online.php
DELETE admin/admin_mx_chkobjs.php
DELETE admin/admin_mx_menu.php
DELETE admin/index.php
DELETE admin/page_header_admin.php
DELETE cache/.htaccess
DELETE includes/mx_form.php
DELETE includes/mx_functions.php
DELETE includes/mx_functions_ch.php
DELETE includes/page_header.php
DELETE modules/mx_last_msg/mx_last_msg.php
DELETE modules/mx_last_msg/admin/admin_mx_last_msg.php
DELETE modules/mx_statistics/mx_statistics.php
DELETE modules/mx_textblocks/mx_textblock_bbcode.php
DELETE modules/mx_textblocks/mx_textblock_html.php
DELETE modules/mx_textblocks/mx_textblocks_multi.php


Now extract the latest distributed ZIP and copy/upload into place the following new/changed files:

DELETE common.php
COPY login.php
COPY mx_announce.php
COPY mx_forum.php
COPY mx_menu_nav.php
COPY mx_multiple_blocks.php
COPY mx_online.php
COPY admin/admin_mx_chkobjs.php
COPY admin/admin_mx_menu.php
COPY admin/index.php
COPY admin/page_header_admin.php
COPY cache/.htaccess
COPY includes/.htaccess
COPY includes/mx_form.php
COPY includes/mx_functions.php
COPY includes/mx_functions_ch.php
COPY includes/page_header.php
COPY modules/mx_last_msg/mx_last_msg.php
COPY modules/mx_last_msg/admin/admin_mx_last_msg.php
COPY modules/mx_statistics/mx_statistics.php
COPY modules/mx_textblocks/mx_textblock_bbcode.php
COPY modules/mx_textblocks/mx_textblock_html.php
COPY modules/mx_textblocks/mx_textblocks_multi.php



Now, upload the install/ folder into your root mxBB folder, and run http://www.yourdomain.com/mxbbroot/inst ... nstall.php to finish the upgrade process by making the necessary changes (if any) to your DB!


The red one not :? I copy common.php :wink:
if I run http://www.yourdomain.com/mxbbroot/inst ... nstall.php I get message hacking attempt
phpbb is up to date....

Very strange, have you tested MH solution ?

Actually, I had no problem at all upgrading.

Let's continue this where peter77 suggested ;)

No
the thred on mx-system.com doesn´t help me.

I get the hacking attemp message after I click on Link under the installer text
Welcome to the mxBB-Portal Installation Wizard mxBB-Portal
v. 2.7.7

mxBB-Portal is already installed. Please, make backups of your database now !

The next step will modify the structure of your database (please note mxBB-Portal does not modify your phpBB database in any way). If for whatever reason this upgrade procedure fails, there would be no other way to return to your current state. Please, make backups of your database BEFORE proceeding !

Once done, click the button below to start the upgrade procedure.

Well, it's no big deal, the only change performed by the upgrade script is the version number, so you could just edit you db manually to fix this as long as you updated the code ;)

I´m a little confused :P ,
forget to delete
Code: Select all
while (list($var,) = @each($input))
   {
      if (in_array($var, $not_unset))
      {
         die('Hacking attempt!');
      }
      unset($$var);
   }

Now it works :wink:

I am not sure to understand well here, do you use this code or not ?

It should be part of mxBB 2.7.7 ;)

Hello dcz
MHobbit wrote on the thread at mx-system
Removing that code in mx_install.php isn't too wise as it's actually a hacking prevention measure. Better mx_install.php than common.php I guess (doing it to the latter would be stupid actually ).


So I delete it and it works

Well you should keep this code an try to find out what var is causing you trouble, must be because of some mod you implemented.

Look for the used HTTP, GET, POST and COOKIE var in those mod's code, to see if some don't use the register Globals properties a bit too much ;)

Since this is becoming a bit technical, I think we'd rather continue support for this at the mxBB website, where all the team will be able to assist you.

I really think you should at least try to put back the 2.7.6-pl2 method for this part instead of nothing, and work a bit on finding out how to upgrade this part as well.
