You'll have much better luck posting under phpBB Support, not phpBB Discussion. As far as I know Support questions in the Discussion area is frowned upon.

I like phpBB's stance on installations: If you can't install this thing yourself, you're probably not going to be able to maintain it anyway.

I have a question. It was relatively easy installing PHP on my web server. I want to know, what are the consequences of not updating to .18? I just got it installed and really don't feel like breaking it. Is the software updated often or just on occasion?

7.iii. Patch file

The patch file is probably the best solution for those with many Mods or other changes who do not want to re-add them back to all the changed files. To use this you will need command line access to a standard UNIX type patch application.

A number of patch files are provided to allow you to upgrade from previous stable releases. Select the correct patch, e.g. if your current version is 2.0.17 you need the phpBB-2.0.17_to_2.0.18.patch. Place the correct patch in the parent directory containing the phpBB 2 core files (i.e. index.php, viewforum.php, etc.). With this done you should run the following command: patch -cl -d [PHPBB DIRECTORY] -p1 < [PATCH NAME] (where PHPBB DIRECTORY is the directory name your phpBB Installation resides in, for example phpBB2, and where PATCH NAME is the relevant filename of the selected patch file). This should complete quickly, hopefully without any HUNK FAILED comments.


This is exactly what I want to do, upgrading 2.0.17 to 2.0.18 without re-MOD. However, I am too dumb to understand this instruction. I've downloaded the phpBB-2.0.18-patch, and upload the file phpBB-2.0.17_to_2.0.18.patch to the phpbb folder. However, I don't know what to do next??? Should I type on the address bar: http://www.myhost.com/phpbb/patch -cl -d [phpbb] -p1 < [phpBB-2.0.17_to_2.0.18.patch] or what?

Can anyone let me know?

Thanks.

It's very simple:

• Upload the new patched or changed files to your server
• Run the script. http://www.yourdomain.com/phpbb/install ... latest.php

Delete the /install and /contrib folders from your server.

Done.
