BACKUP EVERYTHING !!!!!
Move 3.4.7 files outside your public_html-folder (or delete them, if you are sure you created a working backup :tongue:), except
/uploads
/downloads
/public
/screenshots
conf-global.php

Uploiad all 4.x files to public_html.

chmod -R 777 datastore
chmod -R 777 plugins
chmod -R 777 uploads

Point your browser to <yourdomain.com>/admin/upgrade and follow the upgrader in your browser
-> DONE -> Welcome to the world of IPS 4.x :)

Ive done this now but its saying "Your PHP memory limit is set to 64 MB but should be set to 128M or more. You should contact your hosting provider or system administrator to ask for this to be changed"

 

I manually added a php5.ini file into my root which worked under 3.4.7?

​I used a .htaccess file with:

php_value memory_limit 128M

To fix that.

Is the 347 you're upgrading a test one or the real one ? , only asking as the directories etc need to match.

If not sure: Ensure that the 347 board you're upgrading works ie the images are all present. Check in Settings > General Config that the upload URL/Paths are correct (descriptor is right in 95% of cases)

Test copy although it's on a different domain, I changed the url in the config_global before running the upgrade script. Found that it was pulling the css files from my other domain, downloaded and search replaced the live site domain with the test site domain and that fixed it.

Problem is now I'm getting a Error code: EX1267 when clicking into a forum and Error code: 2S100/1 when clicking view new content

I can click the latest post on the homepage and get taken to the thread

Are the themes still broken ?

I would suggest you also need to change the upload URL/path as well as the setting in conf_global, I think this is why its breaking the design. This would not happen on a real upgrade as the path / URL would be exactly the same.

The one way around is to restore your 347 site somewhere then ensure the paths / settings are all correct (try a test upload into a topic) then upgrade that.

Tried 3 or 4 times now to upgrade from 3.4.7 yet the admin and front end themes are broken, fresh install no problems at all

​This happens if you do not set the correct location of the "upload" folder to the path on the test install before upgrading. Check the upload folder of your live site - i guess you will find there the "css_built_x" folders amd mot om the test install.. The upgrader saved them there and the upgraded test forum is shown like it´s on your screenshots.

Theme isn't broken now, upload path is fine, just can't open up a forum or view new content. Can open threads, PM's, profiles etc. fine

2daveoh: i had the same problem. After database creation from the backup i just edit some cells with OLD forum URL in table `ipb_core_sys_conf_settings`... And start upgrade script just afer that.

"Your PHP memory limit is set to 64 MB but should be set to 128M or more. You should contact your hosting provider or system administrator to ask for this to be changed"

 

Create a new text file in your site’s root folder named .user.ini (yes… with the dot first!)

Add this to the file content and save

memory_limit = 128M

That would only apply in some cases as it's dependent on your specific hosting setup. Not all hosts will support a user.ini file though. 

To work around this on an IPS level, you can add the following to your conf_global.php file though.

 

ini_set( 'memory_limit', '128M' );
