Re: Make the pbpBB update process faster and easier

(after all, the board knows which version you are running, and the last version available right?) No it doesn't, it just blindly accepts some info in a few lines in a field or file. It's the admin who knows (should know) exactly which version and whether there have been file or database changes, an...

Re: Deleting accounts by the administrator - info to the user

I never delete accounts, but instead either ban or deactivate them. Reason is: multiple accounts belonging to one person are not allowed, and preserving their names and e-mail addresses is one of many steps to recognize re-registration(attempt)s. Also this has the advantage of being able to reactiv...

Re: users manual wanted, on database backup file.

Is this an idea?
MY idea is: you've installed phpBB3.2.2 which means you've got a working forum. Make a category, add a forum, make 2 or 3 groups and assign them different roles. Play around with all settiings and read https://www.phpbb.com/support/docs/en/3.2/ug/

Re: How to install multiple boards under same domain ?

I tried what I suggested .. and basically ... it works (more or less) There are some problems though: e.g. anything linked from board1, is relative to board1 and clicking on it in board 2 will redirect to board1. I'm quite confident that this 'problem' (and other problems which I haven't discovered ...

Re: How to install multiple boards under same domain ?

As stevemaury said, It should be possible using 1 database. I'm not even sure if all tables have to be repeated with a different prefix. includes/constants.php has a line @define('CONFIG_TABLE', $table_prefix . 'config'); I suspect that if you have 2 forums, you could copy the config_table and renam...

Re: Upgrading from 3.0.11 to 3.2.2 The installer detected a timeout

Since a new 3.0.11 upgrades without any problems, but your 85MB one times out, there must be something in the 85MB hampering the upgrade, and it's not the size (85 MB is nothing exceptional). The messages you posted mention something about update filesystem which makes me wonder whether you are usin...
