I was attempting to update a site from version 1.6 to 2.8 and i followed all the instructions from:
the updating wizard installed and ran fine up until the update processing just froze. So i left it for a few hours, but it was still stuck at the same update progress, so I stopped it and tried again, same issue. So now I reverted back to version 1, while i figure out alternate ways to upgrade.
But after deleting the ver 2 admin.php, index.php, system and themes folders and renaming the ‘_old’ files back to active ones, Im getting this error when loading any page of the website:
“Site Error: Unable to Load Site Preferences; Invalid Preference Data”
All of my files are version 1 files, so now im stuck and don’t really know how to revert back to the version 1 EE and have the original website load
Any help would be great!
