Re: MySQL Update from 5.6 to 5.7

... Curious, WHEN does it become a support issue? After I attempt it and it fails?! The point was (and is) that it's not a phpBB support issue. General discussion seems a better place (it doesn't really make a difference whether it's a phpBB database or something else.) So far, I'm not getting anyt...

Re: MySQL Update from 5.6 to 5.7

Sorry but, all of this it doesn't looks to me as a support's ticket / request. There has been a general relaxation of the rules for this but clearly not a phpBB support issue. https://www.phpbb.com/rules/#server-support Although we are happy to help if possible, problems with server configuration (...

Re: MySQL Update from 5.6 to 5.7

So far, I'm not getting anything more than I already had folks. The idea was someone who has done this process comment, instead I'm getting people second guessing my understanding of the situation. Please only bother to reply if you have something useful to input. That being said, I know I will have...

Re: MySQL Update from 5.6 to 5.7

The transfer of databases between different versions of MySQL or MariaDB should be performed by EXPORT / IMPORT of SQL files using phpMyAdmin or a similiar tools of your choice. And by similar tools, will a mysqldump work as a backup to import into MariaDB ? I'm reading also that I must go to versi...

Re: MySQL Update from 5.6 to 5.7

I'm in the same position too I have been putting it off for this reason although I suspect everything will go fine and if not my host will be able to bail me out :lol: I have also contemplated on upgrading to Maria DB too! Ya, I have Maria DB on my devserver and it works fine, so I might upgrade to...

Re: MySQL Update from 5.6 to 5.7

I'm surprised this hasn't come up with anyone yet ... I would have figured someone would have backed up their db and bit the proverbial bullet and upgraded their mysql by now. I've been waiting just because I have to take my website(s) offline to do this update and I hate taking the website(s) offli...

Re: MySQL Update from 5.6 to 5.7

According to the specs it’s ok https://www.phpbb.com/support/docs/en/3.2/ug/quickstart/ Make backups of everything just in case. Thanks, but I was hoping for someone with experience in this update (IE: have done this update), to see if there are nuances that may cause an issue. While I can see from...

MySQL Update from 5.6 to 5.7

Has anyone had any issues upgrading to MySQL 5.7 while using phpBB 3.2.x ?? I am trying to avoid potential MySQL vulnerabilities, without breaking the forum. I would prefer to know in advance if there will be any "hangups" during this process. Please let me know if you need more information to give...

Re: [3.2][RC] Thanks for posts (and optional Tapatalk integration)

I PMd this to you as well and you've already responded, so I'm eager and hopeful that it's a quick simple fix, but for others who may have not even noticed (as it took me a few days to notice) ... My issue on phpBB v3.2.7 is that the toplist icons are not displaying correctly and I'm getting the wor...
