Re: Updating 3.2 to 3.2.1 - Database size reduced, all topic content missing.

I just remembered this which could explain why we had a 550 MB size DB. My old forum PHPBB3.0 had 253 MB DB (except being an older version with no updates, the forum had no major issues forum usage wise) and when we upgraded (Feb 2017) that to PHPBB3.2.0 the DB suddenly grew to 550 MB. I'm wonderin...

Re: Updating 3.2 to 3.2.1 - Database size reduced, all topic content missing.

I don't know, might just be optimization but it's a heck of a lot! Give it a go and see what happens. You can always restore it afterwards. Still deleting the cache and vendor folders. I just remembered this which could explain why we had a 550 MB size DB. My old forum PHPBB3.0 had 253 MB DB (excep...

Re: Updating 3.2 to 3.2.1 - Database size reduced, all topic content missing.

All of your users and posts are in the database, not in the files. If the files are correct and the config.php file is looking at the right database, the site will show up again. Thanks. But the database did reduce from 560 MB to 150 MB post the database update. Also the backedup database (backup p...

Just upload what it says.

You can recover an entire board with no original files at all so the existing versions don't matter that much.
Thanks so much. Do you mean there wouldn't be any data loss? It would be awesome if that happens. Will perform as suggested and shall update you. Thanks.

Also all the files on the primary folder (except modisson_rest, mchat, config files) and few folders (stor...

Re: Updating 3.2 to 3.2.1 - Database size reduced, all topic content missing.

Saw board telling just to upload vendors and install folders. That's where you've gone wrong. That method is only for use with the auto update. You haven't done that so you have a mixture of a 3.2.1 vendor folder and 3.2.0 for everything else. Do this Knowledge Base - Updating 3.2.x Thanks for your...

Re: Updating 3.2 to 3.2.1 - Database size reduced, all topic content missing.

Coming from 3.0 you have to go to 3.0.14 first So install your full backup first to go back to 3.0.B1 Where does it say or where have i mentioned its 3.0? Please check the first post on this thread, the update if from 3.2.0 to 3.2.1. Everything was fine with 3.2.0 now its struck in-between. Thanks.
