Installing 3.1.10, new host, new install...issues

Sort of a repost but I have a new objective... I had big plans but they exceed my grasp currently so I'm just trying to get a bare bones forum up and running for now. I'm entirely too rusty in linux and website stuff. Host: BlueHost / New Install: phpBB 3.1.10 / cPanel-2.2.31 / Apache-2.2.31 / PHP-5...

Re: New Host, auto-install 3.1.x and upgrade question

I would have used phpMyAdmin already but it doesn't see the database for whatever reasons. Doesn't see any databases at the old site. I'm not going to worry about it. I can just disable but leave that site up for a bit. I have placed the expanded 3.1.10 zip into a folder under my website public root...

I'm ready to start this and having spent some time on what might be best process, I'm going to update my current install of 3.0.12 at the old site to the current version of 3.1.10. Then move the ...

Re: New Host, auto-install 3.1.x and upgrade question

Why huh, well... The forum I care take is about 20 years old and is very small, everyone currently posting have been members for over a decade and most of us have met at one time or another.

Inherited a 3.0.12 forum wanting to upgrade

Hello, I've recently taken over all operation functions of a small forum (very small) and it needs some love and attention. Running version 3.0.12 currently and the email functions seem to have stopped working. People are unable to reset account passwords, I don't think the registration email is wor...
