Re: Is it essential that the Vendor folder & files are uploaded?

Be careful with decompressing on the server-side. I hear that sometimes doesn't work properly.

Do you have tethering on your cell phone? It's a rather small upload even umcompressed.

Re: Is it essential that the Vendor folder & files are uploaded?

Or maybe just drive to a nearby library/McDonalds/etc where they have faster internet. Luckily phpBB is small in size.

Re: The selected file to backup is invalid.

It's on line 219 on the default v3.2.7 file, but the text you have in your post is not the same file.

Make sure you have the correct version of phpbb, and then just follow the directions that people have posted here like 5 times in a row in different ways.

Re: phpbb 3.2.7 no backup download radio button

I agree that the select button should be removed, or ideally replaced with text indicating what folder it will be stored.

Re: Automatic Update broke my forum

Oh,... How do you plan to restore any attached files as that information is stored on the server with the rest of the phpbb files and not the database?

Re: Automatic Update broke my forum

Do you still have the original backup of the database and board files from v3.2.4 when the boarding was running fine (and before you started this "update process")?

Re: Automatic Update broke my forum

rommeltje,
I'm having difficulty following all the things that you have done.

Have you tried to simply restore your functioning v3.2.4 board (and making sure it works) and then applying the update per the knowledge base article update instructions?

Re: Automatic Update broke my forum

Well, couple of problems with that. Most of the files have by now already been overwritten by newer versions, including config.php, so a backup of those is not going to happen anymore. I do still have an old config.php, but that's from before I upgraded to 3.2 (from 3.0). Either way, I'm now deleti...

Re: Newly Registered Users able to send PM's? Why?

Ok, I think I got it. New members are both in the "newly registered" and "registered" groups. Then, when they get their first post approved, they are removed from the "newly registered" and are only in the "registered" group. So basically all the "nevers" in the "newly registered" group override the...

Newly Registered Users able to send PM's? Why?

I have my board set up that people who register have to get their first post approved. Once they do, they have the ability to post and send PM's without restriction. Once this approval process is done they are moved out of the "Newly Registered" group and into the "Registered group" that does not ha...

Re: DB backup size much smaller in v3.2.7 vs 3.2.5

I have no idea why v3.2.5 was saving the files uncompressed with a ".gz" file extension? I bet you have used Chrome as your browser when you downloaded the files via acp ;) There is a know issue (Google may callsit a feature) that Chrome uncompresses .gz files automatically when storing them on dow...
