Why is this

Post by NCllns »

Hello,

My friend had the 2.0.1 version of phpBB and he backed up his database, to send a copy of it to me (our forums are similer), when I ran the restore database utility it worked correctly, however the version number at the bottom says 2.0.1 when I am only running 2.0.0. How do I get the version number back to 2.0.0?
Best Wishes,
Nigel

I'm honestly not sure atm, although I will look it over. I do highly suggest that you do upgrade though becuase it is important as some changes were made. This may be the problem also. You are running different versions of phpBB and you are sharing the same sql file. I suggest you upgrade. :)

Part of the version number is stored in the config table in the database. If you didn't update your files or the database, then you're still running 2.0.0. Caution - using somebody else's database, especially from a different version, may cause undesired side effects. There were a few minor changes in the database between 2.0.0 and 2.0.1.

Yes, that is why I suggested upgrading to 2.0.1. You should have the same version if you use the same database. Bear is right, it can cause undesired side-effects. :)

Hello,

I understand that is is advisable to upgrade, however there are 2 reasons why, the fist is that I have seen quite a few bugs posted and, secondly (the most inportent one) I have tons of mods on my site and upgrading would take hours, some of them arnt compatible with 2.0.1. SO is their anyway I can change the version number?

I gave that clue already. Look for version.

If you do run into any problems, be advised that it is probably due to using a database from a newer version.
