Re: Connecting to multiple databases

That was moved to it's own class. See the \phpbb\db\driver\driver_interface.php file, specifically the sql_connect() function. That should get you started.

I guess phpBB 3.3.0 is not yet compatible with PHP 7.3 (change my mind :D ).
Gladly! :D

Re: Extension tab gives internal server error

What do the server error logs say? If you can't access them, you need to get your host to provide them?

Re: upgrade from 3.2.5 to 3.3

From the information on that page, you have PHP 7.2 and MySQLi support enabled.

Re: Viewing attachments by extension group: is this possible?

Ah, I see now. You're right, there's not a way to sort them by group in a default installation. It appears you would either need an extension or create some sort of custom coding.

Re: Unapproved therefore inactive members receive post notifications via email - is this right?

Possibly related. Have you tried running the SQL query provided to see if that stops it?

Code: Select all

UPDATE phpbb_users SET user_notify = 0 WHERE user_type = 1

Re: Problem with fresh install of 3.3

That's a lot of steps for something so simple. If they can install phpBB on localhost, why not just SQL dump the DB, upload the files (including config.php) and import the DB? Then you only need to change the values in config.php to the correct ones for the host.

I want to go through the attachments and delete any which are no longer required
No longer required how? If you're referring to attachments from topics/posts that are no longer available, 3.2.x does have the "orphaned attachments" section in the ACP.

A blank page is often indicative of a suppressed PHP error, check your server error logs for a clue to the issue.

Re: Looking for recomendations: should i stay with Godaaddy or is there something better?

I would definitely move away from GoDaddy when you can. As HiFiKabin noted, a search will pull up multiple topics/posts about trouble with their hosting.

Any reason you can't use Let's Encrypt? It's free.

Re: Inactive Users Manual Activation Message

If account activation is set to "by admin", then users will get an e-mail when an administrator approves the account. For any other account activation setting, you will need an extension.
