ensure you upload the update file to phpBB2/install not phpBB2 root directory :)

Many thanks to the phpBB2 team. Flawless and painless on a multi-modded board (5 minutes). I'm going to become lazy because of youz! :wink:

update script methodology they decided on I guess - the links in the file tell the script to ascend into the phpBB2 root directory:

eg:

Code: Select all

'./../extension.inc' 
which says begin : ./ (this directory) ../ ascend into the directory above and open extension.inc

HTH

Why so many frequent upgrades? It seems like there's an upgrade about every month.

It's simply not possible to design, implement and release a perfect, fully secure and immutable product. Commercial products usually lag well behind the discovery of exploits not only in the implementation of the software but the underlying architecture they are built on. Like in our case php, apache, mysql et al

In the open source world we have the benefit of being able to stay abreast of exploits as they occur - or as soon as practicable. The open nature of the code makes the fix faster to develop and distribute.

You have to stay ahead of the crackers, script kiddies and viruses etc because new ways of exploiting software is invented every day and it can't be defended against until it is identified (and that needn't be as a direct result of an attack or successful exploit.)

These guys are incredible in their commitment to refining and improving the distro as often as possible given the nature of the task - not just to provide a new vanilla release of the phpBB2 but easy way of upgrading a heavily modified one.

2c anyway

As expected, the 2.0.16 update went smoothly on my board using EasyMod. Good job as usual Acyd Burn & Meik Sievertsen...

Maybe because phpbb is a LOT more poplar there it was a few years ago? & because of this there more security issue, & I guess you don’t what your forum to be hacked do you?
It seems like there's an upgrade about every month.


Between phpBB 2.0.14& phpBB 2.0.15 there was 22 days between upgrades & between phpbb 2.0.15 & 2.0.16 it was 51 days between upgrades.

Keep up the good work phpBB :) & Good work Acyd Burn on this mod, it will be very useful in updating the 20+ forum I help look after.

I get the same problem. I tried undoing the single change in viewtopic.php but to no avail. The error must be somewhere else. I double-checked all changes but could not find the error so far.

This database update drops and creates some tables, adds and modifies fields and indexes, and updates some of the data in the tables, including the version number. You really need to get the update_to_latest.php file to work...

Where do you have the install folder stored? It has to be in the phpBB2 root. The URL in your browser will look something like this:

http://yourdomain.com/phpBB2/install/up ... latest.php

I hope that helps...

yes it is in the root directory inside the install directory and gave me an error while running, it would be better if you could tell me which tables to drop, create and update so that I can use phpmyadmin on my server to do it. plz post the syntax for the same.

What you are asking for isn't a small task. It would be better to find out why this update file isn't working for you. Almost every update has one, so it would be better to fix this now...

Code: Select all

		$avatar_sql = user_avatar_delete($userdata['user_avatar_type'], $userdata['user_avatar']);
	}

#
#-----[ AFTER, ADD ]---------------------------------------------
# 
	else


# 
#-----[ OPEN ]--------------------------------------------- 
# 
modcp.php


Any update on this? I've just come across this one too, and don't want to progress further. Seems weird that the if statement isn't being closed off and there's no actual "else" statement - or is that just a PHP thing?

Cheers,
