Re: [Split] noob question on forum backup

The "PHP Selector" in Cpanel continues to say that my PHP version defaults to 5.6. I contacted support today to verify they had set it to v7.1, as I had requested. Turned out that they had not, but said they've fixed it now. PHP Selector still reports v5.6, but I created a file to check the PHP vers...

Re: Is There A Faster Way To Apply Permissions?

I've been messing around with SSH, trying to figure out what the Linux commands would be to set the permissions that way. Right as I figure it out, you respond and I head back into Filezilla and start examining the program a second time. This time I had no trouble finding exactly what I was looking ...

Re: Is There A Faster Way To Apply Permissions?

You can normally do then recursively With Cpanel, Filezilla, both, or normal with your chosen method? If it is the latter, what is your chosen method? If it is any of the prior, how? How can one even tell something to set all file permissions to 644 throughout an expansive file hierarchy? Wouldn't ...

Is There A Faster Way To Apply Permissions?

On my webhost, when I restore a backup, file permissions are all over the place. My FTP (FileZilla FTP) and Cpanel offer ways to change the permissions of files and folders in the directory I am currently looking at. So setting the permissions of all files will be a time consuming and tedious task. ...

Re: [Split] noob question on forum backup

I have no idea what happened yesterday, but I must have messed up somewhere along the way. I figured out what had happened. In Cpanel, when I enter the PHP Selector tool, it shows the PHP setting for my domain. The account was created in early 2016. I created the subdomain that phpBB is hosted on a...

Re: noob question on forum backup

Yes it should. I'll be happy to have a look for you if you would like me to. Just PM or email me your FTP address and logon details, and I'll see if I can see whats happening (or rather whats not happening) I was all set to PM you the FTP account I had created for you, but I needed to put MySQLDump...

Re: noob question on forum backup

Either ask them how to... ... Once you have the correct php version for that one directory the MySQLDumper should install without error. I just hopped into Cpanel to see if I could set the version of a directory like you mentioned. And I found this bit of information: "The system's default version ...

Re: noob question on forum backup

It might be worth your while asking your hosting company and see if they have something similar. So pretty much follow your guide, and ask them to make the MySQLDumper folder run PHP v5 in that specific folder? If you want a highly configurable script google automysqlbackup, note there is a lot mor...

There can always something go wrong.
I test them by importing the backup into my testboard :)
Is it as simple as trying to load them into Cpanel and seeing if it throws an error or is there more to it?

Re: noob question on forum backup

Yes, I am still using MySQLDumper and it is working correctly on my server. I have it in a separate directory running php 5.6.40 as it will not work on later php versions. I suspect that is the issue you are facing. Crap. Sounds like a good reason for it not to respond when I tried to initiate the ...

Try this extension https://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopic.php?t=2400156 Thank you very much for responding ;) HiFiKabin actually refers to this extension in his article.

[Split] noob question on forum backup

How I do it can be read HERE I found this topic and your response HiFiKabin, and was really excited. I read the guide and grabbed MySQLDumper . Unfortunately, it doesn't start the install process. I looked into it and the project has been dead for three or so years. I'm curious, are you still using...

Re: What Is Your Attitude Towards Styles And Future phpBB Upgrades?

Well, the update from 3.2.6 -> 3.2.7 contained a security update that addressed a vulnerability. Due to the nature of the fix, template changes were needed to add additional form data to the front-end. When I think of "expected issues for a style which hasn't been updated", it's not "the style will...

Re: What Is Your Attitude Towards Styles And Future phpBB Upgrades?

Just curious: which style is it? Basic . Originally created by Arty for 3.1.x, updated by _Vinny_ for 3.2, and updated again by MrGaby for 3.2.7. While there has been an author supporting it for the last five years, I don't imagine this will last forever. I'm thinking the easier way might be to jus...
