I just did a new virgin phpbb2 v2.0.21 install, then installed EasyMod and ran the installation file from the installation package, downloaded from the link in the first post. I had not done this for v2.0.21 as I'm now working on Restrict Username v1.1.7.
The changes from v1.1.6a to v1.1.7 are very important and dosen't allow me an upgrade path, so in answer to your question it's better to wait... unless you have a demo board with EayMOD then it becomes easy to install, de-install and reinstall as need be. Again, do not install v1.1.6 on a live board, as there will be no upgrade instruction file.
Installation with EasyMod v0.3.0 was flawless
including processing of database modifications. Then I manually deleted all new database entries created by EasyMod and launched the installer file for those not using EM.
This file --> update_restrict_username_config_v1_1_6a.php
, which was dropped in a newly created "install" folder off the root of my forum. I then launched it in my browser url field by typing the following:
http://mywebsite/phpbb/install/update_r ... 1_1_6a.php
which returned a successful confirmation screen. To make sure, I then reviewed database changes with phpMyAdmin, and all was modified according to the install file.
I can confirm that Restrict Username v1.1.6a [BETA] will install flawlessly using EasyMod, and I can also confirm that the installer file included in the download package to help those installing this mod manually will also modify the database accurately.
As I have mentionned to Makc666 one post above yours, I certainly hope you are not installing on a live board, and even more noteworthy, is that I will not be providing an upgrade path from v1.1.6a to v1.1.7 as changes are too extensive for me to contemplate doing this.
If you are looking to test it out on a test board, then by all means be specific as to the error message you received and what installation method you have used. A brief descriptioin of your forum environment (PHP and MySQL versions) would also be very helpful in identifying what may be stopping you from installing this mod successfully.
Let me know,
: I know I've been promising v1.1.7 to be released soon and haven't delivered yet. I really am trying, but time constraints make it very difficult for me to put enough time aside to complete it at this moment. I am trying and certainly haven't given up on it. It will be released if it's the last thing I do.
I apologize for the delay...
