Upgrade Error

You have already upgraded Roster
Or you have a newer version than this upgrader

I removed all the roster files stored on the server (except the imgs and conf.php files), left the database alone and tried to upgrade to recieve error above. Dont understand?

I had the same problem as I stated above. I called my hosting company who happens to be Godaddy, they stated that in fact they have register_globals turned on by default. However they said that I could just put my own php.ini in my root directory with the settings that I needed. I did so and it worked like a charm. So if you are having trouble try downloading a standard php.ini template make sure the globals are turned off and stick the ini in your root directory and see if it fixes the problem.

Contact your host, and tell them to turn register_globals off
It is a huge security risk and should be off

If they can't (or won't most likely)
Try using a .htaccess file placed in the root of your httpdocs or www directory
Code: Select all
php_flag register_globals off

if worst comes to worst you can always try using phpnuke as a work around, a howto can be found here:

PHP 5 apparently required for upgrade.php

Postby Jessy » Mon Oct 23, 2006 6:40 pm

Here's something I found that may help out others with a similar problem...

I have roster installed on different subdomains on the same server. The first one I updated was my test site, to make sure everything would upgrade smoothly. This upgrade worked perfect without any problems.

However when I tried it on my live site, I kept getting this error.

Code: Select all
Upgrade Error

You have already upgraded Roster
Or you have a newer version than this upgrader


These subdomains are on the same server, just in different folders. So I doubted that the .htaccess addition would make a difference to one if it didn't to the other. However, I tried it anyway. I still got the same error.

On a hunch, I checked out my settings for both subdomains, to see if there were any differences there. That's when I finally spotted the problem. The test site was set to use PHP 5.1.2 while the live site only used PHP 4.4.2. Setting the live site to use PHP 5, fixed it immediately.

If anyone is still having problems with the upgrade, be sure to upgrade to PHP 5. That should make it work. :thumleft:
