I was trying to update to the latest release (3.0.2) I used the "Changed Files Only" package, everything is done and triple checked however when I try to run /install/database_update.php it loads for a while then it gives a server error (connection closed / no response error).
At first I thought its a time out problem so I contacted my host they've tried everything nothing worked so they told me I should open a support ticket.
This is the message from my host:
Anyone have any idea why this is happening? I'm basically stuck, all PHP files are updated, I just need to update the database. (database_update.php)I have tried to proceed with the update process and it is failing with sometimes multiple non-related errors and sometimes just failing of execution, I have tried to listen to the PHP requests coming and going over this process can't figure out what is exactly causing this failure so as phpBB is a free board software I suggest you open a community support ticket with phpBB http://www.phpbb.com/community/ asking them of how to proceed.
Last question, do I have to use database_update.php? where can I find the SQL queries to run it directly in phpmyadmin, or is that even possible?
