Re: Saving the info without the forum

Thanks for the replies and thoughts.
For now, the freeze posts and registrations works.
If anyone has other ideas, please feel free to share. I'll be checking back periodically.

Re: Saving the info without the forum

If I understand correctly, those "archived" areas are essentially what we've done for now, i.e., set permissions to allow no further posts or registrations. As I understand the forum software, they need to be maintained/updated to keep security up to date. I'm really looking for a way to allow them ...

Saving the info without the forum

Probably not the best title but not sure how better to describe. We have a series of related phpBB forums (actually 5) that were used as an interactive discussion of almost open source product development over a number of years. The product has reached the point where it has stabilized and any furth...

Re: PHP Version 7.3.5

Thanks. I admit that my eyes kind of glazed over before I had read down that far. But now I know and have learned. Thanks.

(By the way, my 3.2.5 is reinstalled and working fine, thank goodness for following the directions and pulling the backups first!)

Thanks again.

Re: PHP Version 7.3.5

Disappointing. My first 5 install/upgrade to 3.2.6 went uneventful and I decided to push it and install the 6th which is on a different server. Luckily, I did my backups and should be able to re-install 3.2.5 soon. Accepting that this is my responsibility to check, I have missed any notice of the ph...

Re: 3.2.2 Update Problem with updating database

I had put this aside and figured to just wait for the 3.2.3 update and the problem reappeared. Steve (@sburns90) had my solution but I had to go "around the barn" to implement. Following the trail he left for us, I went into the ACP Styles menu. I only have one installed style (prosilver) but it was...

Re: 3.2.2 Update Problem with updating database

I've not found any progress in "why" or how to fix. As noted above, I've just gone back to 3.2.1 for now.

Re: 3.2.2 Update Problem with updating database

Thanks to each of you who took the time to read and/or comment. I created a new 3.2.1 installation and restored my database to there so that I am operational again. I still don't know why this didn't work. I am surprised as I've been using phpbb since 2005, sometimes as many 9 different installation...

Re: 3.2.2 Update Problem with updating database

Starting from a clean slate, I have been able to create a new installation complete with an empty database with no problems noted. So I'm trying now to rebuild based on my backup files. Can someone point me to the information of what exactly is to be accomplished with the "update database" routine? ...

Re: 3.2.2 Update Problem with updating database

Thinking there might be some unseen problem with my database, I created a copy of the database with a different name and made the config.php point to the new database. Results were the same as described in the first message in this thread.

Re: 3.2.2 Update Problem with updating database

A bit of a long shot to try, clear the cache via ACP. Some configuration values are cached. I found this out during some offline testing with a database restore on a local testbed that I knew was from a 3.2.2 system. I got the same ACP output as you are seeing, claiming that my database was at 3.2....
