2018 Site Update.
« on: February 08, 2018, 06:46:02 PM »
Hello.

I have tried to update the forum software but will need to update my database server first. Since I have clients on that machine, I can't do so without risking major outages, so I will have to wait for the appropriate time... I reverted to the previous version of the software. Hopefully there won't be any glitches. Let me know if you notice anything weird. My avatar had disappeared but I reuploaded it. You might have to do the same.

Now the YouTube channel is on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/radioprepper

Sorry, I haven't posted much here lately but the YouTube channel takes a lot of my time ???

Future projects include finishing boxing up the MFT-40 and QCX, as well as a few improvements to my Soda-Pop. I have a couple ideas for antenna builds and evaluations. What is needed IMHO are more operating videos. Another couple months and the weather should improve...

Gil.

I am an administrator of a large SMF. For several years, I easily updated the whole thing myself every time SMF posted an update, but I was unable to update from SMF 2.0.13 to 2.0.14, however much I tried.

Now the latest version is already 2.0.15, and I am at a loss how to get there from 2.0.13. Any advice appreciated.

Hi Sparks.

I suspect the upgrade.php script won't let me because the MYSQL version is too old. I might need to modify it to skip that check or use the sql file to update the DB...
