    To follow up on my last post. I had even better results when I deleted EVERYTHING in my kiwitrees folder EXCEPT /data and then uploaded 3.0.0 The reason, I guess, is that I had not cleaned out the kiwitrees folder for YEARS and there were certainly old unused folders and files possibly even going back to my webtrees days. I must be the 1% where a re-upload worked.

    Thank you, Nigel, for all your continuing hard work in getting this major update released. Anything that leads to code simplification, increased functionality, and easier maintenance is worth any delays or hassel getting to work.

    Best regards

    I deleted my existing /kiwitrees/modules folder and uploaded again.

    I wish you had given me a little more time to view your site. Then I could easily have told you which precise module(s) were causing the problem. The fact that deleting everything from modules worked confirms my earlier guess that you had in place one or more old modules, most likely simpl_menu/simple_menu2. This is exactly as described in the upgrade instructions (as linked to in the announcement news email) and could better have been fixed in the manner described there. Then all the settings you had for those old modules could have been methodically transferred to their new replacements.

    There is no reason why that should ever be necessary, so I would love to know what changes it has resulted in (what is not there now that was before or vice versa).

    When files are removed from the system they are listed in admin.php. The first time you visit the admin area after an upgrade all / any of those files it finds are automatically deleted for you. If your server is configured in such a way to prevent that happening, then instead a list of those files is created and displayed in a ‘accordion’ drop-down on the admin front page, titled “Old files found” and with the explanatory text “Files have been found from a previous version of webtrees. Old files can sometimes be a security risk. You should delete them.”. You could of course have been ignoring that list, but you shouldn’t.

    Guess I still have “L-plates” on because I never even knew it was there 🙁

    It means what it says. My guess is that the user you have set up in your ‘sandbox’ is not fully set up. Does it have a default individual and an individual record established? With this version kiwitrees when you login the system will take you directly to your individual record.

    I have no idea! It is just test data made for the danish group to play/test with!
    What should I do? Delete the standard person?

    At my historic database I get this issue when I try to manage modules:

    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare class user_favorites_WT_Module in /home/h/o/ftp_host-sidendk/webtrees/modules_v3/widget_favorites/module.php on line 330

    Also got it at the test database – but it suddenly worked. I have no idea how

    Do you have time to look at the installation?

    It seems okay as visitor except I can not define the modules! http://www.host-siden.dk/webtrees

    I can email you access for a test admin!
