Re: Upgrading software and database

Re: Upgrading software and database

Presumably this would also mean that if I set up a completely new forum - latest version, obviously - I could then import the 3.2.2 database via phpmyadmin and update it via the ACP?

Re: Upgrading software and database

Losing the existing data wouldn't be a problem - it would just be an earlier version of the database I wanted to update to. So would I import the database in phpmyadmin and then run an update from the ACP?

Copying images and files wouldn't be a problem.

Upgrading software and database

I have a 3.2.2 forum that I am currently unable to update (it's complicated... :roll: ) I am copying it to a different domain, where I will be able to update it. However, the forum will continue to function on the old domain, and at some point in the future I will want to import the database from th...

Re: Blank Page on Starting New Topic

I haven't - we have shared hosting and I have to go all around the houses to get to them, but in any case I would have thought that any change would have affected all of the forums in the Category, if not the whole board. It is just one out of 6 forums in the Category, and the other 4 Categories are...

Re: Blank Page on Starting New Topic

I have a feeling I did this at some point in the past, but I have completely forgotten how I did it. Do you have a link to an idiot's guide? I do have a full, up-to-date backup on my PC.

Great I did that stuff saved it, now I can not login to ACP as admin nor can I go to my own UCP, what do I do now mate
If you're on Firefox this is a known issue (and one that I have had when updating phpBB).

Clearing history is the bit that sorted it out for me.

Set "Force privacy acceptance" to Yes

Where is that in the ACP if I may ask. All I see is enable the extension, can not find any where to modify, edit or make changes.

Peace
Go to the 'Extensions' tab in the ACP and scroll down the menu on the left to 'Privacy policy settings'.

Re: New GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and phpBB

There's some sound advice from a lawyer on the BBC News website . She said small organisations should relax and apply a simple test: would a person expect to get a message from you? She gives as an example a swimming club. You would expect to get a newsletter about opening times at the pool or meeti...

You need the link to the actual image (right click on the image and choose 'view image', then copy the url from that) and put the img tags around that.

Re: New GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and phpBB

I think the organisations that are responsible for policing the GDPR (the ICO in the UK) will only ever visit a forum if a complaint has been made. They're vanishingly unlikely to ever go out looking for infringements from forum owners who are not big businesses. If you can demonstrate that you have...
