"Can't upgrade that kind of scalar" errors during installation [updated]
We've had many reports of the following error during installation:
Can't upgrade that kind of scalar at lib/MT/App/Upgrader.pm line 153.
If you've been blocked from installation by this error we'd like to hear from since we are gathering data on the issue. When reporting the bug it would be very helpful for us to know:
* Platform OS (Linux, Windows, FreeBSD, etc.)
* Database you are using and version (MySQL 4.1 for example)
* Whether your server/hosting provider are running any technologies such as FastCGI or cgiwrap.
* And, as always, a link to your mt-check.cgi (or a copy and paste to email) are very, very helpful.
And, of course, if you have encountered this bug, please accept our apologies--we know how annoying it is to get psyched about a new piece of software and then not be able to try it out.
Update: Brad Choate has now checked in a fix for the issue, which I have verified. If you have experienced this bug and would like to try out the fix, please get in touch with me via the feedback form and I will make it available to you.
