Trying to upgrade from an OLD version of b2e from around 2007. I have not been able to get the software to respond since moving all my content from an old server to a new server. The domain has not changed or the location of the files within the directory structure.

Site address

Directory structure

I uploaded the files and started the upgrade process, but I get an error right away.

So I deleted the database, then restored it from the backup I had from before the upgrade, and then I tried again but with different baseurl info in the _basic_config.php file,

$baseurl = '';

Did you Continue Installation ?
And watch out for http | https option (see screenshot)
Did you check the .htaccess for an http directive?

When I did try to continue, I got an error about the skins table.

Here is the .htaccess that is in my /public_html directory.

RewriteEngine On

RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
RewriteRule ^ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]

There is no .htaccess file in the /public_html/blog directory where I have the software installed.

So I reset the database from the backup and tried again,

I'm not that familiar with .htaccess and not sure it's relevant
b2evo uploads it's own .htaccess in its root folder which you can read.

But the issue seems to be a problem with the skin recognition.

The database is very old and the updates should be automatically incremented DB v.9407 to DB v13070 will be a bit slow maybe, so you could just try again and see if it gets past the skin issue.

The problem with a field not existing in database implies a jump in updating with parameters that are not available.
I think you'll have to wait for one of the developers like @fplanque to shed some light on this :(

By the way is this an ftp upload or an automatic upgrade.?
