Let me first say that I am unfortunately having to stick with phpBB2 because the current server doesn't support v3 yet. Also, Yahoo Small Business hosting supplies phpBB 2.0.18 and trying to find .23 is next to impossible.
So if my version is the problem, let me know. If not, this is what I do:
I uploaded the index directory onto the root directory that has all the .php files (including the config.php).
I then went to the URL of my forum adding /index/SQ_update.php
My forum page came up with a message to remind me to remove the index/ and contrib/ directories.
By the way, I never uploaded the contrib folder to begin with.
The directions did not sya to do anything more but I feel I need to do something else. Since nothing has happened, obviously something is wrong. Is there something more I need to do?
What about the security_question_1.1.0.mod file. Was I suppose to do something with that.
Can someone supply specific install directions?
Firstly you can update to 2.0.23 or even 3.0.2 yourself without using the files Yahoo give you. Just download them from here.
To install my MOD open the mod file with a text editor (I recommend the one linked from my website) and you will see its a set of instructions. Just edit the files as listed, upload them, and the mods installed
