Re: Updating from 3.2.9 to 3.3 ->The file differ failed to open Array

With regards to changing the instructions, suggested by Lumpy Burgertushie, I would like to state that the following advice given by brf, earlier in this thread: "Do not click the update button. Link the "Update Database" link, like the instructions tell you." But as I have responded to this, the "U...

Re: Updating from 3.2.9 to 3.3 ->The file differ failed to open Array

Just in case: before starting a new upgrade (with the full package), always check your /store and remove install_config.php, io_lock.lock and the migrationsxxx if these are present. And for good measure also empty the /cache (leaving index.htm and .htaccess). I suspect something is lingering and st...

Re: Updating from 3.2.9 to 3.3 ->The file differ failed to open Array

make sure that your admin account is also in the registered user group. and is NOT in the newly registered user group. creating a topic is not an administrator permission. being an admin only gives you access to the admin panel, it does not give you permission to see forums or post in them etc. rob...

Lumpy Burgertushie, warmweer, david63, thank you all for your advices and inputs.

Administrator has full access to the aforementioned forum in which "New Topic" button does not show up.

Re: Updating from 3.2.9 to 3.3 ->The file differ failed to open Array

I have searched for this error, and I get a lot of links in this forum for this problem. But the advice for each one is different and I don't know which one applies to me.

Re: Updating from 3.2.9 to 3.3 ->The file differ failed to open Array

I put the top-level forum inside a Category, but still no sign of "New Topic" button.

Re: Updating from 3.2.9 to 3.3 ->The file differ failed to open Array

But now when I create a new forum, I am not getting the New Topic button itself!

Is it because every forum should exist within a category?

Re: Updating from 3.2.9 to 3.3 ->The file differ failed to open Array

You are using the Automatic Update package. That is why you get that message. The instructions say to download the Full package, replace the files and then update the database. (The first "Link" in Brf's response should be "Click") No, I did download the full package and replaced the files and then...

Re: Updating from 3.2.9 to 3.3 ->The file differ failed to open Array

I assume if I follow the instructions in this page and download the package from here , everything is likely to go smoothly without the scary "The file differ failed to open Array" error message. Yes, should be fine. Just remember to 2. Make a backup of the original files and 3. Make a backup of th...

That page tells you to use "Update Database". Your image shows you are are using "Update Files", which is wrong.
I clicked on this Update Button and then everything happened as displayed in the images

Re: Updating from 3.2.9 to 3.3 ->The file differ failed to open Array

The reason I asked the question is because I plan to upgrade another of my forums, which has a lot more posts than this one, from 3.2.7 to 3.3 and I don't want to run into similar problems. I assume if I follow the instructions in this page and download the package from here , everything is likely t...

Re: Updating from 3.2.9 to 3.3 ->The file differ failed to open Array

It looks to me like you downloaded the wrong package. 7. Download the phpBB 3.3 full package archive. If you’d followed the instructions you linked to you would have done a file replacement and there would be no need for diffing. Hi Mick, I clicked on the orange button and downloaded the full packa...
