Hi, sorry if this has been asked before but I couldn't find an answer with a forum search.
I am running b2evolution version 1.10.2 on a private Intranet and would like to upgrade to version 5.0.7.
I followed all the standard upgrade instructions, but when I run the install script the web page only returns:
Nothing after that. There are no messages in the Apache error log. I am running this on Linux/Apache.
Is this upgrade possible, or is it too big a version step? I could just install 5.0.7 fresh, but I'd like to keep all the existing posts (there are no custom skins), is there a way to import them?

Perhaps it was related to permissions.
I restored from backup and started a fresh upgrade install. I hadn't chown'd the new installation before, this time I did to apache:apache as well as chmod 777 conf.
The upgrader still only reported the same two lines:
but, the blog URL responds now and it seems to be working! Thanks for your help!

Excellent news @cwestbye! You're welcome.
@cwestbye sites running 1.10 should be perfectly upgraded to 5.0.7 (I just did it a couple of days ago). Please, check your environment meets the system requirements (http://b2evolution.net/man/installation-upgrade/system_requirements).
Your upgrade seems to be stopped at the .htaccess install step, did you check the permissions on the folder are well configured?
