I'm using 2.1.7, although have active licensing for IPB.
My 2.1.7 is not Unicode and it's not English forum.
What should be the upgrade path to get to 4.0? I've tried to use 4.0 on top of 2.1.7, but seems it's not supported.
You would need to upgrade to 3.4.7 first. The 4.0 upgrade libraries do not go back that far.
What about changing to Unicode? When do I need to do that? (If I need to do it by myself at all)
Upgrade to 3.4.7, then 4.0, the utf8 converter is built into 4.0. (No need to do that as an extra step. )
Just a sidenote before (if you've not already done the upgrade) decide if you want to keep either avatars or profile pictures as there's only one image per member in later 3x versions compared to 2x.
Full backup recommended then simply as indicated upgrade to 347 then if you wanted to, upgrade to 4
Upgraded to 3.4.7 successfully. But when tried to convert to utf8 as first step to upgrade to 4.0 B2 - all text dissapeared....
Please posts bugs in the Bug Tracker:
Im assuming this was a test database you were trying to upgrade and not your live one?
Of course. What's strange, I was not able to reproduce. On next try it looks it was translated good, but another issue appeared - I opened a bug for this.
