Re: 3.3 upgrade successes

I needed to migrate 3.2.8 databases from live forums on one server into new 3.3.0 forums on another. I noticed during the oriiginal auto-update there was an option to just update the database so that seemed ideal. Sadly the Install program won't play if the core files have already been updated so I ...

Also the NotifyAdmin extension threw an error and had to be disabled in the ACP 'Customise' tab. Reported in the Ext forum section.

3.3 upgrade successes

Inevitably this forum is going to see a fair few failures for various reasons which can be offputting so I thought I would start a topic recording successes (or near successes) so folks can see what works and possible potholes we have managed to step over. I've done two forums so far from 3.2.8 to 3...

Re: Discuss: phpBB 3.3.0-RC1 Release

I'd like to remind everyone that this topic is about discussion the release of 3.3.0-RC1. Please be respectful to others in this community. Paradoxically a post that deserves a core based 'like'. Stereotyping (inaccurately) people because of their views is unhelpful here and in their moderator capa...

Re: 3.1 --> 3.2 database upgrade failed

SUCCESS!! The missing link was the STK DB clean. Though on the first attempt it removed phpbb_config_text which caused the CLI program to fail. A second run allowing it to stay worked after a long wait. The upgraded website page then threw a SQL error - but it was a simple permission issue because I...

Re: 3.1 --> 3.2 database upgrade failed

I wouldn't risk that upgrade on a production forum - so I am working on a clone on another server. Reverting everything is what I've done several times already. So no damage done. I think I will sleep (or rather celebrate Hogmanay) and try again tomorrow via your suggested route with a clearer head....

Re: 3.1 --> 3.2 database upgrade failed

Yes you are right. 3.0.14. The instructions from 3.0 appear identical. Are you saying I have to replace the existing dev.php file with the github one?

TIA and cheers for 2019.

Re: Registration Form - Adding existing profile fields

I have just applied the codes to prosilver/3.0.2 using PFE.

The input field appears in the reg form, I do not get an error but nothing appears in the user_from field in the database.

PHPBB 2.0.23 causing Apache problem?

I had a WHM/cPanel dedicated server with around a hundred domains. It ran perfectly up to a couple of months ago. Then Apache started failing. Didn't affect anything else so a restart sorted. Could not work out what might be the cause. Then, for other reasons, I transferred my two main PHPBB fora to...

Re: Linked Image Copyright

ChrisG - with greatest respect this is the area of non-specific phpBB discussion. The questions affects most Forums whether phpBB or other. However, it is relevant to most phpBB moderators because they run phpBB and the way phpBB integrates third party images. Where else would be a better fit? Re le...

Re: Linked Image Copyright

You misunderstand. The images are usually on the server of the poster so he has given himself permission to link. And what if it is just expressed as a normal hyperlink? Two people claim copyright. The image is not on our servers - only the link. Does the copyright holder (whoever that may be) have ...

Linked Image Copyright

Like most phpBB sys admins I allow (nay encourage) posters to include links to their images to illustrate their posts. These appear inline and to the casual observer appear to be part of the Forum although, of course they are being downloaded from another server. I have had two recent cases where th...

nofollow is a snake-oil concept that relies on all search engines not following the links that have this in the tag. If a spammer can get listed in one, then that is more than good enough for them Do you have evidence for this? http://www.homelandstupidity.us/2005/05/23/nofollow-revisited/ Negative...

Absolutely. Even Microsoft accept their responsibility by now building in defaults so the average joe's system gets updated automatically. All I asked for was that in future versions there was a default inactivation when it was a couple of versions out of date. All capable of being overidden of cou...
