  • IPS 4 Upgrade

    • Start Date: 08/02/2018
      Completion Date: 11/22/2018
      Expected Completion Date: 08/19/2018

    We're going to be upgrading IPS 4 to the latest version which includes new and improved features.


    We first have to copy the current database and files over to a test website to ensure the upgrade will most likely go smoothly. As of right now, there are a few bugs with our current theme using the upgraded IPS 4. We will have to fix these first and then do a test installation.


    Afterwards, we can upgrade the live website.


    I will be leading this project and doing mostly everything.

    I have replicated the current website onto a separate install. I was investigating an error for an hour with this. However, I've fixed it.


    I am now moving over our uploads folder which is 35+ GBs. Afterwards, I will upgrade the test installation and see how it goes.

    Known issues with upgrade on test move:




    Search bar in the top-right window is broken. There is also a problem with the donations system.

    More work is going to have to go into this upgrade than I thought. We have to upgrade Steam's login plugin to an application for the 4.3 upgrade:




    When I did this on the test installation, it didn't import the old Steam logins to the application. This is a big concern. However, I didn't follow the upgrade instructions exactly. Therefore, I am going to try getting everything back to the plugin and upgrading it correctly.


    Also, our Discord integration addon will NOT work with 4.3:




    These are big concerns and will take time to test. I will be pushing back the expected completion date. Though, it is a possibility this can be tested and completed before the weekend ends. We will have to see.


    P.S. The Steam login system upgrade fixed the donations system issue mentioned earlier.
