Re: Error 3.3.0 ► 3.3.1 database only update

Yes, I clicked update database, which was the only option I got.

BTW, please don't tell me that instructions are "implicit" when they are not on the page. :roll:

Re: Error 3.3.0 ► 3.3.1 database only update

I see you have the instruction
Deactivate all styles except for prosilver
When updating from 3.2.x to 3.3.x
https://www.phpbb.com/support/docs/en/3 ... upgrade32/

Does this also apply to 3.3.0 ► 3.3.1?

Re: Error 3.3.0 ► 3.3.1 database only update

Okay, turned off Litespeed cache and the problem has changed slightly: phpbb-error.png This was an almost instant result, so no timeout IMO. This makes it more like the previous instances when these error messages were seen, where timeouts occurred. The fact that it changed with cache change is inte...

[SPLIT] Error upgrade 3.3.0 to 3.3.1 with full package

make sure your active style is a 3.3.1 version (also applies to language files).
My active style is proflat, and I am having the problem mentioned in my thread. Is there a requirement to be in a certain style when doing a full update, and if so, why is it not mentioned in the instructions?

Renamed folders production and installer in cache to production0 and installer0 to make them invisible to the update process. Tried again, no change.

Re: Error 3.3.0 ► 3.3.1 database only update

Note I did not have prosilver set as the default style since this was not specified in the linked document at top of this thread. Could this be the problem?

I have switch off Cloudflare, no change

I also have Litespeed cache .... could that be an issue? Have not switched that off yet.

Re: Error 3.3.0 ► 3.3.1 database only update

This was suggested as a fix when this happened last time, in 3.2.2
viewtopic.php?f=556&t=2453611

Still valid?

Re: CPU Usage abuse solution needed

Just a guess, but since your new method is to use permissions to not allow the opening of topics, but just view them. Now with the extension you used prior you were able to open the topic, albeit just one. Now if a bot/s were vising your forum (which I see in your access logs and in fact happens to...

Clear as day here, all I did was remove that extension, no other change, and this is my resource usage now. resource-usage.png ------------------- Here's the "before" ► limited.png And we know the culprit was, in every instance, viewtopic.php And we know the extension modifies viewtopic's ...

Re: Discuss: phpBB 3.3.1 Release

The Release Highlights show zero "Template Events", yet there are template changes (look in the styles folder). Why no mention?

Re: CPU Usage abuse solution needed

Don't see how that's possible. It's the truth, Rich. My CPU graph went from spikes all day to flat as a pancake. BTW Rich, I was also able to engineer a reasonable replacement for the extension, by altering Guest Permissions to allow them to browse the forums and see the topics, but not open the to...

Re: CPU Usage abuse solution needed

Quick update: I can now confirm that the Show First Post Only To Guest extension causes MAJOR PROBLEMS with CPU usage in 3.3.x I only had ONE mod in my forum, this one. I was getting throttled with lots of CPU spikes caused by viewtopic.php Removed it and my CPU usage graph flatlined. My PageSpeed f...
