I am trying to do an upgrade from 2.1 to 2.11.1. I have followed the instructions here https://docs.expressionengine.com/v2/installation/update.html. My issue when i go through the wizard I get to the portion where it is supposed to start the update and it never finishes or errors out. It just refreshes every 2 seconds but never gets past that. I let it sit for a couple of hours and never got past that screen.
I then went in to try and get the login page but I get this error.
Unable to load requested field type file: ft.rel.php.
Confirm the fieldtype file is located in the expressionengine/third_party/ directory
I noticed a change with the filetype folder where each file type is now in its own folder and also rel went to relationship. I made sure I copied /system/expressionengine/fieldtypes/relationship/ft.relationship.php and saved it to /system/expressionengine/fieldtypes/ft.rel.php and /system/expressionengine/third_party/ft.rel.php. This did not make the error go away.
Any advice on what to try next would be appreciated.
I have gotten past this point now. I went in and manually changed a couple of things in the database. First I changed rel to relationship in exp_fieldtypes table. Second I changed all references to rel to relationship in exp_channel_fields.
I am now able to see the login page but I am not able to login. I get the following error.
The following errors were encountered
This form has expired. Please refresh and try again.
So again I am stuck as the issue is the upgrade wizard does not do what it is supposed to do.
Wondering if anyone else has had a similar issue with the upgrade wizard from any version of 2 past 2.6 which is where I believe csrf tokens were implemented. Any tips would be appreciated.
