Re: After updating to 3.3.1 I have problem with mobile menus

I'm just saying (again) that there have been a few buggy releases in the last few years. This was not so prevalent a decade ago, so it's not a positive change. I'm not sure why it's happening, but the net effect on users is negative. More and more we feel we should delay implementing updates because...

Re: After updating to 3.3.1 I have problem with mobile menus

not sure where you worked in IT but it must not have been in software testing. Spent several years in software QA, mainframe systems. I'm old. just think about microsoft and their release policies in the past to see how software releases very often work out. Why pick one of the worst companies as a...

Re: After updating to 3.3.1 I have problem with mobile menus

The explanation makes sense, it's typical of the sort of thing that happens in IT. Should have been caught, but whatchagonnado?

But guys, if this were a paid software, like vBulletin, heads would have to roll. :shock: The paying customers would make sure of that (ask me how I know, lol)

Re: After updating to 3.3.1 I have problem with mobile menus

And phpBB still does - it's called Release Candidate versions which members are asked to test - anyone can join in Then how did an enormous and obvious bug like this get through? I mean, a few minutes testing this and it's apparent to anyone. How can you call this a tested version? There's been a t...

Re: After updating to 3.3.1 I have problem with mobile menus

Is everyone having this problem, or only some people?

Back when I worked as a systems analyst in IT, we used to do an old-fashioned thing called "testing".

Re: Hostgator temporarily banned my hosting LOL

My CPU problems were caused by an extension. So were the CPU problems of another guy here with CPU spikes. Get rid of all extensions and then add them back one by one all the while watching your cpanel's Resource Usage graphs Oh, and get another host. I recently left Hostgator because they simply su...

Re: Error 3.3.0 ► 3.3.1 database only update

Perhaps if a developer can tell me the exact database changes that need to happen, I can fix this manually? It's a small update, so what's going on in the db, just a version change? Edit: Used WinSCP instead if FileZilla to upload everything again. Emptied cache again, deleted /store contents. Turne...

Re: Error 3.3.0 ► 3.3.1 database only update

Re-uploading the entire full package (sans specified directories) again .....

If that does not work, not sure what I can do. I have nearly 20 years' worth of forum postings and valuable data I cannot afford to lose. Fortunately I backed up before starting this.

Re: Error 3.3.0 ► 3.3.1 database only update

I renamed /install and was able to get back into the acp and cleared cache and checked that language Br Eng, style is prosilver. No extensions other than viglink, which is the extension phpbb installs, right? acp has this message: Your phpBB installation has not been correctly updated. Please read t...

Re: Error 3.3.0 ► 3.3.1 database only update

Perhaps I need to empty cache ... deleted (renamed) folders production and installer in cache, no change, those folders recreated automatically

Maybe this style issue is not the reason for the error

Re: Error 3.3.0 ► 3.3.1 database only update

  1. style_id for prosilver is 1
  2. Made it the default style
  3. changed anon to this style (I was already set to 1 somehow)
  4. deleted the 2 files in /store (there were no migrations files)
Ran the db update, same error

Re: Error 3.3.0 ► 3.3.1 database only update

Because that will take a long time and it's late at night here. I don't have any extensions. I said that above in this thread. There must be an easy way to set the style via the database. Br English is my language. Cache purge should be easy via the database too. PM me the instructions if you are wo...

Re: Error 3.3.0 ► 3.3.1 database only update

How can I get prosilver as the active style? I'd like to do it via phpMyAdmin. I'm very familiar with updating the database directly (used to be my job).

I'm not sure what will happen if I rename the install folder and try to get back into the admin screens ....

Re: Error 3.3.0 ► 3.3.1 database only update

By that reasoning the update/upgrade package doesn't need to include a version of prosilver compatible with the update, nor updated language files. And old versions of extensions should also work with new versions of phpBB, right? Look, if people need to switch back from their style to the prosilve...

Re: Error 3.3.0 ► 3.3.1 database only update

I have tried the database update about 7 times now. So what does the "data corruption" message as seen in the screenshot above mean? Am I corrupting my installation?

Oh god this is the 2nd time I've been burned by being an update guinea pig for this phpBB software. When will I learn!
