Because that's simply not how copyrights work. Not all template authors are up to speed on copyright matters as well, hence some templates say 2005.

The instructions clearly say to run it from within the install folder. (http://{your_domain}/{root_path}/install/update_to_latest.php)


okay, sorry and thanks to you and Jim_UK

What are you trying to do? If it is add the bit that Marshal said you could add it to overall_footer.tpl

can i just say a MASSIVE thanks to phpbb for making the upgrade so easy, i was dreading an update as my board is heavily modified and couldnt contemplate a possible way of upgrading, however providing the code changes in manual form was a life saver and it went smoothly without a hitch

thank you

Roger that - I have a heavily MOD'ed board; using the manual update has shown zero problems so far.

It's still missing the database related changes, yes i know, update_to_latest.php, but i'm one of those free forum service providers, and i can't use update_to_latest.php every time you release a new version.

a plain text file where all queries are listed, so i can
a) modify the base installation queries and
b) feed my updateallboards script with those queries.

also in respect to phpbb3, should it have production quality.

does your service use a different set of phpbb files for every board, ?

if so, why, most of the free providers only use one set of files and different table prefixes in one database , etc.

that way, you only have to update one set of files .

anyway, you can take the update to latest.php file and take the SQL out of it and use it however you want.

I run a free hosting company, I open up a file called forum2.php and go down and change the version number for whatever comes out, and it automatically upgrades all the new forums. I hadn't had to worry about old forums until today :OGlobally edited all forum files, replaces .21 with .22 and it was updated. Me so good :P

sorry, but that is not how to update. It looks like all you did was update the version number in the database. That does nothing.

could you post a link to a text version of the forum2.php file so we can see what it really does?

thanks

Except break update_to_latest so it will not update the database at all... That makes me wonder if that is why the advice we give others to run update_to_latest, and it updates nothing, has been happening...

I don't have this

Post by Grandma » Sun Dec 24, 2006 12:49 am

The first code change is:

Code: Select all

#-----[ OPEN ]--------------------------------------------- 
# admin/admin_board.php

#
#-----[ FIND ]---------------------------------------------
# Line 55
		// Attempt to prevent a common mistake with this value,	// http:// is the 

protocol and not part of the server name		if ($config_name == 'server_name')	

	{			$new['server_name'] = str_replace('http://', '', 

$new['server_name']);		}

#
#-----[ AFTER, ADD ]---------------------------------------------
#		// Attempt to prevent a mistake with this value.		if 

($config_name == 'avatar_path')		{			$new['avatar_path'] = 

trim($new['avatar_path']);			if (strstr($new['avatar_path'], "\0") || 

!is_dir($phpbb_root_path . $new['avatar_path']) || !is_writable($phpbb_root_path . 

$new['avatar_path']))			{				$new['avatar_path'] 

= $default_config['avatar_path'];
well I don't have anything that says

Code: Select all

$new['server_name'] = str_replace('http://', '', 
so now what?

I can't even start this thing.

that means that you missed this update from .19 to .20
that is where that was made.

you should probably go back and do the update from .19 to .22 to be sure you have everything done properly.
