  • Patch your mainfile.php.

How to patch your mainfile.php? It's very easy. Modify your mainfile.php as the following with a text editor like notepad.

if (!isset($xoopsOption['nocommon']) && XOOPS_ROOT_PATH != '') {
  include XOOPS_ROOT_PATH."/include/common.php";

if (!defined('_LEGACY_PREVENT_LOAD_CORE_') && XOOPS_ROOT_PATH != '') {
  @include_once XOOPS_ROOT_PATH."/include/cubecore_init.php";
  if (!isset($xoopsOption['nocommon']) && !defined('_LEGACY_PREVENT_EXEC_COMMON_')) {
    include XOOPS_ROOT_PATH."/include/common.php";

If you use XOOPS Protector, you have to adjust your mainfile.php more. Read 'About mainfile.php' in this document.

  • Go to your Homepage and install required modules in the automatically started 2nd installer.
  • Go to the module management, and update all of your modules.
