While upgrading from v5.0.3 to 6, I received the following fatal error:

   "A language file for language EN is missing: points (lang/EN/points.ini or an overridden equivalent to this path) (version: 6.0, PHP version: 5.2.9, URL: /cms/index.php?keep_safe_mode=1&keep_theme=default)"

I had previously uninstalled the points system as I have no use for it, but it looks like the upgrade could not handle the fact that the points.ini file was missing.

When I copied the ini file from a test environment and reinstalled the error went away.

I also received the following error diring step 5:

  "Upgraded core tables. Database query failed: CREATE TABLE ocpo_f_group_member_timeouts ( member_id integer NOT NULL, group_id integer NOT NULL, timeout integer unsigned NOT NULL, PRIMARY KEY (member_id, group_id) ) engine=MyISAM; [Table 'ocpo_f_group_member_timeouts' already exists]"

After completing the install, this error no longer appears.

Thanks for the info.

  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
