3.0.0 RC2 Released
Version 3.0.0RC2 is available. This is a "release candidate", not an official final release. Be sure to read all upgrade instructions, including the post install instructions. Note that the post install instructions do not apply if upgrading from RC1 to RC2, and you have already performed any needed changes. This release fixes several bugs that were found in RC1, see linked release notes below for more information on bugs fixed.
Release Candidate 2(RC2) Info: On new releases that add a substantial amount of new features, we will be making at least 1 release candidate prior to the official main release. All release candidates are extensively tested in-house prior to release, and we feel it is ready for "prime time", however we like to give it at least a week in client's hands just to be sure.
Refer to this post, look for the info on RC special releases near the bottom, for more info on Release Candidates.
Read the release notes for information on new features and bug fixes on the linked page.
Files changed between RC1 & RC2:
- Removed Addon:addons/example
- 3rd party library upgraded: classes/adodb
- Removed: classes/module_display_php_#.php (files replaced with single file):
- Added: module_display_php.php
- 3rd party library upgraded: classes/tiny_mce/
- Added: docs/post_upgrade_instructions.html
- robot_list.php (added new robots to list)
- Most files in: upgrade/
Files changed in RC1:
This is a major feature release, and is the first to be capable of running Premier and Basic levels using the same code base. Because of this, almost all files have been altered.
- / (entire directory)
If you are already in the new shopping cart/license system, you should already be able to download the new version in the Client Area. We will NOT be sending out an automatic release announcement through the cart system, since this is a Release Candidate and not a main release. We will make a release announcement sent to all current users in the new cart system once the official 3.0.0 is released.
Upgrade Wizard Issues:
Firefox, and potentially other browsers, seems to add .gz or similar to the install/upgrade executable when downloaded from the client area of our site. If your download ends in anything besides .exe when downloading a wizard package, remove it so that it ends in .exe. Also, if you have problems when you use the wizard, see this post.
Post Upgrade Instructions:
See the linked instructions.
Note: Post Upgrade Instructions are also found in the docs folder of RC2. If upgrading from RC1, the post upgrade instructions are not necessary.
The example addon has been removed from the main package to avoid confusion. You can get the example addon (instructions may change):
- Purchase the example addon (for free) in the cart, by logging into the client area, and viewing the details of an enterprise order, find the link that says "Buy new addons, support and upgrade packages" and click on it.
- Go to the order details page for the order you just purchased.
- There should be a download for the example addon on this page.
If you have any problems, start a support ticket, or post a reply to this thread.

Guess I'll be first with a problem
I tried to install the RC2 tonight on my laptop running XAMPP (Apache). Everything went well up to the point that I needed to click on the link to my admin page during the very last step of the setup. I got the congratulations message that I successfully installed the software. Then, I get the following error when I click on the admin link for my site:
Fatal error: Cannot redeclare class Config in C:\xampp\php\pear\Config.php on line 43
I don't really want to take up too much of any one's time on this because obviously this isn't even my "real" install -- just a test environment. But, is there a quick answer to this?
I should mention that I have a previous version running successfully. (just can't chmod my user_images folder properly on windows )
Edit: This was installed with the full windows installer version on a new database, in a new directory.

You might try this:
- Open the file config.default.php
- Fine the line that says:
- Change it to:Code:
- Save the file and see if it works.
IMPORTANT: (info about config.default.php) The top of the file config.default.php says this at the top:
# DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE!!! Edit config.php instead!!!! # DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE!!! Edit config.php instead!!!! # DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE!!! Edit config.php instead!!!! # DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE!!! Edit config.php instead!!!! # DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE!!! Edit config.php instead!!!!
The config.default.php file is used to set up default values for anything that can be set in the main config.php. It is designed, so that you can keep using your "old" config.php, and not have to worry about adding any new required settings when you upgrade. As long as you have the 4 database settings set in config.php, the rest of the settings will be set to default values for you in the config.default.php.
