Re: CConverting BB2 to BB3 and no errors and no conversion

Hello, I will ask if php 7x is possible. While I was waiting for another idea from the members I installed phpBB 3.2.5 on the host server. I then imported the DB from my backup (exported under phpBB 3.0.8 table configuration). I renamed the install folder and went to the pgpBB login page. That page ...

Re: CConverting BB2 to BB3 and no errors and no conversion

Hello, Having a little confusion with your suggestion, janus_zonstraal. phpBB 3.0.8 is not installed due to compatibility issues (see my earlier post). Are you suggesting I update an uninstalled phpBB board that has not been configured for its DB? Please confirm this. I would have thought the phpBB ...

Re: CConverting BB2 to BB3 and no errors and no conversion

Hello, A little further clarification. Since the original hosting company closed the board has been nonoperational. Thinking the phpBB version was 2.0.23 (please read again my previous posts) I installed phpBB 2.0.23 on HostGator's server. I imported the SQL (now known to be based on phpBB 3.0.8 and...

Re: CConverting BB2 to BB3 and no errors and no conversion

Hello, I was writing my last post prior to reading, David63's post. On submitting my post I then saw David63's post. Thank you David63, I again opened the backup and searched "version" and found: ('upload_path', 'files', 0), ('version', '3.0.8', 0), ('warnings_expire_days', '90', 0), There it is, ('...

Re: CConverting BB2 to BB3 and no errors and no conversion

Hello, My saga continues... Prior to the closing of the original hosting company I had made a copy of the phpBB installed files. I have been looking at various .php files to find a version number.

Re: CConverting BB2 to BB3 and no errors and no conversion

Hello, Bottom line: As I look at my challenge, I must get the proper phpBB version running. Import my backup and then upgrade to the current phpBB software.

Re: CConverting BB2 to BB3 and no errors and no conversion

Hello, Well, where do I place these folders & files, on the server in the /phpbb2 path? I looked at the red me file and it indicates, cd phpBB php ../composer.phar. So, cd refers to a DOS command to change directories. phpBB refers to a folder in phpBB2Mx-2.0.24-A2. Can't find if this is a localhost...
