Help - upgraded to 3.0 and i might have lost everything - error says can't find directories

posts: 41

i was runinng version 2.1 and i wanted to upgrade to 3.0

I upgraded to 2.4 without any issue (as it said to first upgrade to the latest 2.x) I then upgraded to 3.0 and everything in the install process seem to go fine as i followed the steps from here:

http://doc.tikiwiki.org/tiki-index.php?page=Upgrade+2.x+to+3.x&bl=y

But once i logged in after it said the upgrade was successful, i get this error below.

Tiki is not properly set up:
The directory 'c:\hosting\webhost4life\member\mikekantro/backups/' does not exist.
The directory 'c:\hosting\webhost4life\member\mikekantro/dump/' does not exist.
The directory 'c:\hosting\webhost4life\member\mikekantro/img/wiki/' does not exist.
The directory 'c:\hosting\webhost4life\member\mikekantro/img/wiki_up/' does not exist.
The directory 'c:\hosting\webhost4life\member\mikekantro/modules/cache/' does not exist.
The directory 'c:\hosting\webhost4life\member\mikekantro/temp/' does not exist.
The directory 'c:\hosting\webhost4life\member\mikekantro/templates_c/' does not exist.

Note that the directories do exist but they are in a different place. For example "backups" is in:

'c:\hosting\webhost4life\member\mikekantro/WIKI/backups/'
instead of
'c:\hosting\webhost4life\member\mikekantro/backups/'

where its looking it for:

i saw a few mails that said to change the tikisetup.class.php but that just leads to a blank line being shown.

any help would be appreciated.

As far as I know, Tiki doesn't create directories in the install process; these need to be in place before the install script is run (and this script just updates the database). Are you sure the files for the Tiki 3.0 install were put in the same place as the previous Tiki installation's?

if your tiki installation is inside the WIKI subdir, then you need to create your directories under that subdirectory.
