Re: Going from 3.0.x to 3.1.x to 3.2.x to 3.3.x (eventually)

I tried 3.0.5 to 3.2.0 a few times but it didn't work. Tried it on a Windows 10 machine and on a Ubuntu machine. Just didn't work. kept running into snags. Does you 3.0.5 have any mods? What size is the database? Which snags? No mods. Database is 5 MB Sometimes completely blank screen. Sometimes Co...

Hi Steve, I tried 3.0.5 to 3.2.0 a few times but it didn't work. Tried it on a Windows 10 machine and on a Ubuntu machine. Just didn't work. kept running into snags.

Going from 3.0.x to 3.1.x to 3.2.x to 3.3.x (eventually)

My forum is currently on 3.0.5, I want to eventually get it to the latest stable release.

Re: Converting from Vb3.x to phpbb 3.0.5

Mick,
Good to hear from you. Thanks.

Yes, I will. But I may have had a breakthrough by going back to an old, retired server that was in storage but that fortunately still booted, and I'm trying to do the conversion on that old server.

SFSG.

Re: Getting SQL Injection Attack warnings when people use PhotoBucket

â?? I ended up exporting the entire forum database, then opened it in NotePad ++ next, I search for and removed ALL occurrences of the above character in the entire database. Mostly I found them in place of apostrophes. Finally, I re-imported the "cleaned-up" database back into MySQL. Everything se...

Re: Getting SQL Injection Attack warnings when people use PhotoBucket

The term "magic quotes" is wrong. I don't understand? Isn't that what it was called? Magic quotes. Magic quotes was a feature of the PHP scripting language, wherein strings are automatically escaped—special characters are prefixed with a backslash—before being passed on. It was introduced to help n...

Re: Getting SQL Injection Attack warnings when people use PhotoBucket

I'm finding a lot of these (thousands (make that 10's of thousands) of them) in the old vBulletin posts..... â?? in this context.... For me itâ??s a fine line, So, maybe Magic Quotes was escaping apostrophes with â?? Unless I'm mistaken, these characters are not compatible with phpBB ? And I think M...

Re: Getting SQL Injection Attack warnings when people use PhotoBucket

Most likely \\x22 was the trigger - phpBB stores this as HTML entity ( " ). So yes: the data stored in your database tables (not only post texts) might be improper. You always write "upgrade", but you needed to convert to phpBB first. Maybe a fault of the converter which just is not that caref...

Re: Getting SQL Injection Attack warnings when people use PhotoBucket

One other thing.... My current 3.2.5 install was upgraded originally from vBulletin 3.6.10 In that version of vBulletin they used MAGIC QUOTES. Which as since been deprecated and is no longer used. But, all those posts were copied verbatim into 3.2.5 during the upgrade. I have over 225,000 posts and...

Modsecurity is typically matching something in post text to a known malicious pattern.
Since phpBB's post text is escaped before it is stored, there is no known pattern that could possibly be malicious.
Ok, that's what I was looking for.

Thanks again

Re: Getting SQL Injection Attack warnings when people use PhotoBucket

modsecurity is set by your web host. You would have to ask them to turn off that rule. Of course. (I'm the host :-) I was just wondering if anyone else with phpBB has had this same problem and if it "could" be an issue with phpBB's interaction with PhotoBucket or if it definitely is not anything to...
