getting 'Invalid classname.' error after installing tbupdater

  • Im getting ‘Invalid classname.’ error message in admin modules page after installing the tbupdater module. Didi anyone faced the same and any suggestion to fix this?


  • If you cant get to your BO>Modules anymore then ftp to your site, and delete /modules/tbupdater.

  • @slick_303 but i want to update to latest TB, thanks for your suggestion.

  • can you get to BO>Modules and Services still?

  • either way it doesnt matter, if you delete it, the option to install it will be back again.

  • @slick_303 yes loads the module page after removing the tbupdater module folder

  • if you removed it, then try installing again…

  • @slick_303 the message comes once the module is uploaded,!!0_1515436051449_Screen Shot 2018-01-08 at 11.57.07 PM.png

  • what version of tb are you on?

  • @slick_303 1.0.1

  • It sounds like the newest version of the updater isn’t compatible with 1.0.1, this is a job for @mdekker… I would delete it for now, so you can get to your Modules and Services and then wait for a developer to help ya

  • you can try manually d/l and installing an older version of it via github…

  • @slick_303 could you please guide me upgrading manually, i know replace the controllers and classes folder, what about the db structure changes if any ?



    I don’t believe there are any db changes, you ‘should’ just be able to copy all tb1.0.3 files over your existing site. If you using the default theme, and you’ve modified it, then don’t copy over the theme. I would try this first. If that fails then try this…

    Step 1) Backup your files and DB before doing this!! ALL of your files, and your datebase via phpMyAdmin, a FULL backup!!

    1. Delete all folder except:
      /modules (except the modules you have installed. In other words delete all core modules)
      /overrides (which is probably your problem so i dunno)

    2. Unzip the tb1.0.3 file to your computer, and delete /install and /img folders. Then rename admin to your old admin name.

    3. Upload the rest to your site, coping over anything that may exist, which shouldnt be much

    4. Edit your /config/ file, change the “define(‘TB_VERSION’, ‘1.0.1’);” to “define(‘TB_VERSION’, ‘1.0.3’);”

    5. using phpMyAdmin, modify your tb_configuration table changing PS_VERSION_DB to 1.0.3 and PS_INSTALL_VERSION to 1.0.3 (they both should say 1.0.1)

    6. goto you admin url, login, and check your settings just for fun, they should all be the same.

    7. enjoy 1.0.3

    I have to say though, that doing a clean install of 1.0.3 is the better way to go, then you start nice and fresh. All you do is copy over your theme, and your img folder, and install any of your modules you need again. You can ‘try’ the first way, but this way is better in the long run. Of course you would need to import your customer info, all your product info, ect, but it can be done (and is out of the scope of this writing)

  • Do you have a lot of data inside your installation? Otherwise you should install 1.0.3 directly!

  • I agree @wakabayashi
