I don't know. How do I find out? I know it wasn't updated correctly. I would like to know how to update it correctly, even if I have to do it manually. EDIT: if you mean the version value in the phpbb_config table, it is ".0.21" (without the quotes.) But as I said, even when I updated and ...

Clean *and complete* database?

I had a heavily-modded board using pphBB 2.0.17 that I needed to upgrade and finally attempted to. Because of the mods that I didn't want to reinstall, it was suggested to me to upload the code changes for each version release with EasyMOD, to .18, .19, .20, .21. I did so (running /install/update_to...

Are you running update_to_latest.php when you update your board? That script alters your database, and I think when upgrading to 2.0.19 it added the table _sessions_keys. When I ran the script I noticed that it couldn't add that table for some reason, but I didn't know what to do, so I ignored it. B...

You said some of your users were getting this error? This is because their browsers have disabled cookies, they are not accepting them. So phpBB tries to send them a session ID which looks like this in their address bar: http://www.domainname.com/phpbb/index.php?sid=7663c1c18d50360c087819e4a45ea7de ...

I edited my post above. I believe it is caused when you disable cookies and phpBB tries to use session IDs to track who is logged in. It uses that missing table for that purpose.

I updated last night and I just got this same error. Using phpMyAdmin I can tell that I have a phpbb_sessions table but not a phpbb_sessions_keys table. cybrid23, you might remember me from another topic where I asked how I could update a heavily modded board. I used EasyMOD as you recommended but I...

Okay. I have installed EasyMOD before. I've found it only seems to work some of the time, and then the mods it successfully installs only appear to work some of the time. But I'm afraid I still don't understand :oops: Is he recommending I use EasyMOD to reinstall my mods after replacing my forum wit...

Yep...You could use easy Mod. What does this mean? I could easily add my mods again? If only it were easy to add mods in the first place! Are my only options what I mentioned in the post above and to hunt down and reinstall all the mods I am using? If I were to attempt this how would I go about upd...

I have a similar problem, however I have to update from 2.017, and I noticed that the total estimated time is 195+ minutes. That's astounding! Isn't there a faster way for me to safely update my modded forum than spend three and a half hours cutting and pasting code, and praying I don't screw up eve...

I must agree with the original poster. I have gotten over the fact that months ago I was forced to learn how to modify my forum, and I resent the fact that I am too scared to update my version from 2.0.17 to 2.0.20 for fear of breaking any of my mods. Your users are not all programmers! (Thanks for ...

If he's so paranoid that he fears registering, tell him that he should disconnect from internet in a hurry and go to hide himself under his bed :P :lol: 'cause every action he did can be tracked by servers owners and by his ISP. That's actually a debate with him that I'm more afraid of winning than...

Deleting all users with no posts

A large number of these are bots that are cluttering up my forums, the rest are obviously useless, but deleting all these bots individually is a lot of work. I'm thinking my job would be immeasurably easier if I could prune users with no posts. Is there a mod that does that? I can't find this in the...
