I apologize for a question that I know has been asked and answered. However, I don't have enough reputation to reply to the answer, just to provide another "answer", which I don't have. Instead I have a complication.
I've grabbed my v3 files from this post, which I began following last year when I upgraded from 1 to 2. I've procrastinated upgrading to 5, but would like to do so within the next day or two if possible. The error I'm running into can be found in this post, which is where the problem arises: that's not what my config file looks like.
$config['app_version'] = '2.10.1'; $config['license_contact'] = ""; $config['license_number'] = ''; $config['debug'] = '1'; $config['cp_url'] = ''; $config['doc_url'] = 'http://ellislab.com/expressionengine/user-guide/'; $config['is_system_on'] = 'y'; $config['allow_extensions'] = 'y'; $config['cache_driver'] = ""; $config['install_lock'] = '1'; $config['db_hostname'] = ''; $config['db_username'] = ''; $config['db_password'] = ''; $config['db_name'] = ''; $config['db_type'] = 'mysql'; $config['db_prefix'] = 'exp'; $config['db_conntype'] = '0'; $config['system_folder'] = 'system'; $config['cookie_prefix'] = ''; $config['multiple_sites_enabled'] = 'n';
That's a blank example of what my config.php file in the user folder looks like. I followed the official instructions and yet hit this error. Is this an outdated config file? Could my database.php file also be outdated? Is there an empty config file I can use that's more up-to-date and in line with the answer from the other post?
I'm sorry to create a new question for something that's been answered, but that answer only provided more questions and StackExchange won't let me address that person's reply directly. Any assistance on this matter is appreciated.
Oh, and for what it's worth, I'm not using any 3rd party add-ons, so my step-by-step upgrade shouldn't be that much of a hassle. Shouldn't be. Sadly, it seems to be.
Thank you for any assistance.
