Re: Migrate data from custom forum

I'm looking to migrate an existing custom-made forum to phpBB 3.2.7. I need to migrate the users, messages and threads. I was thinking about writing a script that reads a row from an existing forum DB table and writes the data to the phpBB table with the fields in their proper format and location. ...

Re: Recommend me a domain & hosting that is cheap and good please

... Anyone cares to leave your number over the bottom of their site to ask why Finnish and Estonians are hated? https://www.ionos.com/ The "hate" part is your interpretation. Perhaps there are specific (new?) rules and regulations. I know 2 Dutch hosting providers that only offer hosting (and domai...

Re: 3.1.5 to 3.2.X Backup and Update

6MB only? You shouldn't really have any problems with upgrading. (in fact it shouldn't take more than a minute or 2) You mentioned you don't know which styles you have in use. That probably means you're only using prosilver. Just in case, check the database: in your 3.1.x remove all other styles (if...

Re: 3.1.5 to 3.2.X Backup and Update

Still that leaves with me two questions: Should I update the forums now or hold off until the primary webmaster can analyze the suppressed php error? What settings should I use for backing up the database? You should always test your backups (and try to update) on localhost before risking anything ...

Re: What comes next after social media?

... Will be the same with brain implants: it's all fine and handy, but exporting data to exchange it or back it up is a case nobody will think of. That would scare the sh*t out of me. What kind of backup would need to be taken? Full Backup? Incremental? Periodicity? What about if I die... Can my ba...

Re: Permission to view profile warnings

??? In the context of this discussion, that remark falls in the category logical fallacy. Your argument for not not implementing this permission was that you don't need it yourself so this was a perfectly appropriate remark to make. That is a false representation of what I wrote (and as such is als...

Re: Permission to view profile warnings

This permission would be off by default. I wrote default feature, not default permission. there are too many rotten users on the board. If that is the case then giving more tools to mitigate such situations only highlights its importance. For me the currently available tools are more than sufficien...

Re: Permission to view profile warnings

My main argument against having this as a default feature is that if it becomes necessary to post public warnings too often, then either the "rules" aren't clear, or there are too many rotten users on the board. I sometimes (seldom) give public warnings and those automatically come with a temporary ...

Re: Permission to view profile warnings

... The permission system was created for a reason. The fact that warning visibility is predefined for a specific acl group goes against common sense. I can understand (and partly agree with) your other statements but this one baffles me. The arguments against making warnings public are a represent...

Re: [SPLIT] Confused by 3.1.X to 3.2 upgrade instructions

May I suggest the TS explains exactly what he has done (and uses the Support Request Template) in order to at least identify the problem and its probable cause, without which a solution can hardly be found.
