I have a few "internal server errors" on the category page. It occurs on those fields which require choice as value type. I'm using WAMP on windows. I guess this is an issue because I am using an internal server. Will it be different when I host with elief?

I'm wondering about the "sign in" box. It looks different on the admin page than it should if it would be present to the outside world. I don't have a password textarea etc. Again I assume this will be resolved when the site is hosted externally?

Also, I'm getting the external server ready. Is it easy to transfer my work done so far from WAMP to Elief?

Sorry for all these questions.

This was fixed in 4.1.8.

This sounds like a corrupt file. The 'integrity check' tool in the upgrader should find it.

Thanks Chris. You're a star.

One easy question though. How do I upgrade from 4.1.6 to 4.1.8 without downloading the whole lot again and risk wiping out what I ahve already done? Do I just install a couple of files form the new download in my www folder in wamp?

Much appreciated.

Al.

Look at the bottom of this screen, see '4.1.8 released' (scrolling past), click, follow instructions.

Chris,

I've upgraded and the bugs have been fixed. Thank you.

I clicked on the integrity check tool in the upgrader but it only found this file which needs to be updated: sources/version.php

Mmmm. I don't know if this will show up, but my login box looks like this (without the applicable css of course):

sources/version.php shouldn't come up, and I've worked out why it does – so this will be fixed.

I don't know what you're saying about the login box. If you're confused by the appearance of 'Username', it's because you are logged in as an administrator and can use this field to masquerade as other users.

Chris,

That's fine. I thought it looked different because I was admin. I wasn't sure until I have it up hosted externally and pretend to be someone else.

One problem came up with the upgrade perhaps. My search option in the admin zone is down.

When I type a word in search it says:

An error has occurred

A critical parameter, search_content, was missing.
It's not a critical error for me though. Just thought you'd like to know.

Did you clear the caches after upgrading?
We made a change to this to fix a problem on Internet Explorer. I can imagine this error happening due to that (on any browser) if the template cache wasn't cleared.
