Re: Problems attempting forum updates

If you already replaced the files, you could simply run the following command from your board root , not from the install/ directory: php bin/phpbbcli.php db:migrate --safe-mode Which should fix it, since it won't try to use the ftp class. Ok, so do I need to move the phpbbcli.php file out of the i...

Re: Problems attempting forum updates

Well ... as expected no joy - exactly the same problems even with the search tables truncated. Installer method times out, CLI throws up the same error. phpbbFAIL.jpg Now where is that smashing my head against the wall emoticon ... On the upside, I've got very quick at restoring this website. :roll:

Re: Problems attempting forum updates

DB size is 128Mb which is pretty small compared to our 'large forum' at 680Mb which we have no chance of updating if this one won't work. Search table I presume is phpbb_search_wordmatch, it is about half at 67Mb and phpbb_search_wordlist is 10.9 Mb. So you reckon I should empty these tables and try...

Re: Problems attempting forum updates

@warmweer - massive thanks for the offer, I may take you up on it! I think the problem is updating the database but nobody seems to know how to fix it. Server is running MariaDB 10.2.32, PHP 7.2. Yes - trying to update from 3.2.2 to 3.2.9 on a smaller board before I attempt it on the larger ones (wh...

Re: Problems attempting forum updates

You might want to use type: db_only instead of type: all in your upgrade YML configuration file, however (as the documentation says) you will need to replace some folders and files manually, either though SSH (scp, rsync) or with FTP. Yes, I did exactly that - and uploaded the full 3.2.9 package ma...

Re: Problems attempting forum updates

So no suggestions on the CLI failure? I'm coming to the conclusion this software cant be updated (or nobody knows how to) so we're stuck on an old version or need to convert it into forum software that is easier to manage. I know the server will be blamed, but we've just migrated to a brand new one ...

Re: Problems attempting forum upgrades.

The CLI method also failed. I followed these instructions: https://area51.phpbb.com/docs/dev/3.2.x/cli/getting_started.html And got this error when trying to update the DB only: Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined method ftp::transfer() in /home/davos/public_html/includes/functions_transf...

Re: Problems attempting forum upgrades.

I don't want to update to 3.3 ... does the user guide apply for 3.2.9? Yes Well, more errors - I tried again today, following that guide to the letter - it doesn't allow me to skip to the update database only - it just jumps to the update files section then this happens: update.jpg phpbb .jpg Now I...

Re: Problems attempting forum upgrades.

I don't want to update to 3.3 ... does the user guide apply for 3.2.9? Apologies for all the q's but everytime I try to upgrade it screws up. I wish phpBB would be like Wordpress with one click and its done - upgrading this software has been a bloody nightmare over the years and it NEVER goes smooth...

Re: Problems attempting forum upgrades.

So, the question remains - can I update 3.2.2 to 3.2.9 using the full package?

What folders do I need to replace? Will it automatically update the database?

Re: Problems attempting forum upgrades.

No, there was no way to 'go back' and try another method, it kept skipping to the fourth stage and timed out every time I tried to update the files.

This is why I'd like to do it in stages and go to the last 3.2 version first - but that also threw up errors (as posted above).

Go to advanced search
