The code is up to date as far as I can see although it's not really needed with version 2.4.x of the Advanced Guestbook.

I am still on 2.3.1 at topcatlive. Is there an update only zip that I can run and still hang on to my settings, style, and entries? I will search for it, I am just asking in case I don't find it or am not comfortable with it. Plus the main thing is keeping my settings, style, and entries. Top

Settings, style, entries etc are all stored in your database. You just ned to download 2.4.2, copy the database information from your 2.3.1 config.inc.php file to the 2.4.2 config.inc.php file then upload 2.4.2 and visit misc/update_db.php in your web browser.

Let me make sure I am clear on this. I got the copy confi.ini.php part. All I do is upload to the same folder and the 2.4 will overwrite the 2.3? Will I have to delete files after it updates? I had to delete a couple of files after it was installed (I think... it was a while ago). Never heard of misc/update. Will it be easy to follow? Top

I copied config.inc.php, overwrote 2.3 with 2.4, reloaded config with the one from 2.3, then dialed in the misc/update_db.php, and received a "Please update the config.inc.php file" first. Am clueless. Top

No yo ucopy the database information FROM your current config.inc.php file TO the one in 2.4.2 as it has some new stuff in it.

As I look at it, I am thinking that you are saying that I should copy the stuff the has GB_DB. And the scary part is it makes sense to me. Top

This mod is not needed for AG versions 2.4 and over as it has captha. Replace all your files except config.inc.php with the new ones.

I do not believe this is a case. Advanced Guestook I am using is 2.3.1.

I tried to upgrade to latest version, but I was getting some errors

"1146 Table 'guestbook.book_captcha' doesn't exist"

and after running updadet_db.php another error

"1044 Access denied for user 'yscr_gbuAj7'@'localhost' to database 'guestbook'"

which does not make any sense since I updated config file with databse info, and guestbook connects to the right table

version 2.4.3

Once you update you need to visit the misc/update_db.php file in your web browser.

I tried that, and I still get errors. At this point, I think, is easier to modify code. Can please, someone take a look at it and tell me what is wrong

http://www.nowy-jork.com/Ksiega3/TempCode.html

and this is how form looks
