Re: Trying to prep migrated 3.0 forum for 3.2 upgrade, but stuck

We are on 3.2! I just got into the ACP! Thanks everyone. 8-) 8-) 8-) We have some error messages, so we are trying to work out what phpBB is telling us is wrong and see if we can fix it ourselves. EDIT: Looks like there might be several things wrong. I need to coordinate with the others, do some tes...

It can be done with SQL. The following will set the CAPTCHA to the installation default. After running it, delete all the files in the /cache folder EXCEPT .htaccess and index.htm. Also, if your table pre fix is not phpbb_ , change accordingly. UPDATE phpbb_config SET config_value = 1 WHERE config_...

Re: Trying to prep migrated 3.0 forum for 3.2 upgrade, but stuck

My other admin (who goes by Chimpman) has made a checklist of the things we have to do. He has got back into the STK now (I'm staying away from it in case something I did locked it up) and has gone through many of the steps we need to do to get ready for an upgrade. He is having problems with this s...

Re: Trying to prep migrated 3.0 forum for 3.2 upgrade, but stuck

if you have access to the database you can manually go in and reset the style to prosilver and set it to override user and that should let you at least upgrade and then fix the other issues. If you can't clean up the old database before you try to upgrade it , it will be a problem but not impossibl...

Re: Trying to prep migrated 3.0 forum for 3.2 upgrade, but stuck

your cookies should be fine but you can run that cookie.php script mentioned in the post linked above and remove the dot from the front just to see if that helps. Thanks. We are going to give that full stop thing a go. It's worth trying anything that might work. :) and, yes you can upgrade without ...

Thanks for a highly detailed response KevC. I've seen you help lots of other people, and I've always been impressed with how much work you put into it. So WinHost bless em' have an 'app installer' in the CP where you can install phpBB to a folder of your choice Do not do this. We do not support host...

Re: Trying to prep migrated 3.0 forum for 3.2 upgrade, but stuck

There’s no reason to be messing with the database, apart from making backups, PHP and mysql. First you have to back up your files and database. Read the relevant parts (backup) of Knowledge Base - Transferring Your Board to a New Host or Domain . If you have to move the board to the new host yourse...

Re: Trying to prep migrated 3.0 forum for 3.2 upgrade, but stuck

I've tried getting back into the STK Admin Panel today, but I can't get in. Do you get a error message? It's weird. I get a similar thing with the STK, that I get with the ACP. I log in and get to a page that says: "Information: You have been successfully logged in." Then I get kicked back to the l...

Trying to prep migrated 3.0 forum for 3.2 upgrade, but stuck

Hi, A friend set up a phpBB forum, called The Piazza , just under 10 years ago, but has not had so much time for it lately. I've been trying to help out by doing admin, but we were getting problems with access to her server. (Then the forum got so large that the hosting company threatened to shut it...

Re: Can I go from 3.012 directly to 3.2.x?

He is helping me through this process. We are both learning how to do this. The new hosting company offe...

Can I go from 3.012 directly to 3.2.x?

Hi, A friend who set up a phpBB forum back in 2008 doesn't have enough time to look after it, and I am going to take it over. I've got several issues, and I'm trying to work out what order to do everything in. It's on a hosting company that wants it removed, so I've got to get it imported onto anoth...

Re: Resynchronize

You can't. The Increment Post Counter flag is in permissions -- the forum permissions of the author. The resych would time-out if it had to look up every single post's author's permissions to see if the flag should be set. Does the Resync option in the MCP do what TheDani was asking about? The desc...

Getting forum icons onto the server

Hi, I'm a Junior Administrator on a phpBB forum and, at the moment, I have to bother the Owner of the forum, every single time I create a new forum, to get the forum icon uploaded onto the server, so that I can link to it from the ACP. I've tried uploading images into forum posts and then linking to...

I can't get Styles database to work

Hi, I can't get the Styles Database or Styles Demo for phpBB links on the Styles page to work. I looked around but could not find an announcement about this. Are these pages offline while being upgraded to 3.1.2 or is there a bug that needs reporting? (And where do we report bugs with the phpBB webs...
