Upgrade 3.0.8 to 3.2.5 without losing content

Hi All. Newbee here.

We have phpBB 3.0.8 and the ISP is upgrading the server to php7.2

I see in the Automatic Update Package appears to only work from 3.1.0 upwards.

How can I upgrade from 3.0.8 and not lose any data / content / settings ?

Regards

Re: VPN discussion: Are they necessary?

the main reason of consumer VPN is to hide what you are doing from your ISP. for instance, if you are downloading things that maybe you shouldn't be. If you are using a good VPN then your ISP has not idea what sites you are visiting or what you are doing. the ...

Re: How To Hide Admin IP For Moderators

I cannot think of any cases where an IP address could divulge any "useful" information If it's just some random IP assigned by your ISP it's largely irrelevant. If it's specific IP assigned to your business, workplace or whatever that is much more specific and information someone may not ...
