This was fixed in 3.2.2 - https://github.com/phpbb/phpbb/blob/mas ... 1838-L1842
Thanks! The bug tracker was marked as "RESOLUTION: WON'T FIX" so I assumed that it was not fixed.

You have simplified my life a little :D

Re: Discuss: phpBB 3.2.2 Release

Okay, I managed to update successfully to 3.2.2 using the method described above. Basically, if you have essential core file edits, it's best to keep a document describing them, then download the "changed files only" package, update the affected files, upload them, go to the /install/app.php/update,...

Re: Automatic Update Package Not Working for Me.

The so-called "automatic update" pathway should be removed immediately since it is no longer reliable.

You don't need auto updater to update your board. Yes, I do. I have bespoke code in ucp.php (text changes only ... and btw there are TWO files called ucp.php in this software, which is dumb) functions_messenger.php (because of this bug ) overall_header.html (because I have a special slider in the h...

Re: What Happened to the Automatic Update package?

Why on Earth the auto-updater will work for 3.2.0 → 3.2.2 and not for 3.2.0 → 3.2.1 is something that has not been clearly explained. There is nothing to explain. There is a bug in the 3.2.1 Auto updater which will probably be fixed in the 3.2.2 updater. Did not happen. Bug still there, apparently.

Re: Discuss: phpBB 3.2.2 Release

About auto-updater i can say only one thing, use full package to update and no auto. Extensions are simple if you start developing those. Sigh.... I don't think they are "simple", after looking at the documentation, but it looks like I have 2 choices: install a new forum software (e.g. vBulletin or...

Re: Discuss: phpBB 3.2.2 Release

I did not back up the vendor folder, only folders containing content I have created or modified, as well as the mysql db. So I have re-downloaded 3.2.0 and I am uploading the old vendor folder. This is so incredibly frustrating and annoying. It's starting to feel as if I will never update phpbb agai...

Re: Discuss: phpBB 3.2.2 Release

Now during my abort of the auto-update, I can simply delete the INSTALL folder but the VENDOR folder was half-way updated by uploads when I aborted. Will that be a problem? Should I re-download the full installation of my current version, 3.2.0, and then re-upload the matching vendor folder to overw...

Re: Discuss: phpBB 3.2.2 Release

the answer to your question is no, the auto updater is not fixed for 3.2.2 Oh great, aborting upgrade now.... I don't remember there being any problems with it for 3.2.0 to 3.2.1 but there are definitely problems with the 3.2.1 to the 3.2.2 Um, there was extensive discussion about the problems with...

Re: Discuss: phpBB 3.2.2 Release

Hi, I am still on 3.2.0 because 3.2.1 had a broken auto-updater that wiped out lots of modded code, and the advice I received back then was to wait to 3.2.2 because by then the auto-updater would be fixed. So, is it fixed now? On another issue, I was criticised for having a lot of hand-modded change...

Re: Firefox's BBCodeXtra add-on discontinued. Replacement?

And that is better than an enhanced bbcode editor how?

Looks like while I am "whining" others want to boast
