Post by hp_solomon » Thu Feb 26, 2009 3:45 pm

Hi,

Before, i was able to download update changed files only packages on the download section of phpbb.com. Now, i can't find it. My site is highly modified and i need to make changes by hand to update it from 3.0.2 => 3.0.3 then 3.0.3 => 3.0.4

i've been doing manual updates since RC.

pls provide link/file. thank you.

hi.

thank you for the link but i can't find the 3.0.2 => to 3.0.3. Should i go manual updates from 3.0.2 => 3.0.4 or should i go 3.0.2 = > 3.0.3 then do 3.0.3 => 3.0.4?

there are also multiply packages for 3.0.2 => 3.0.4. why?

phpBB-3.0.2_to_3.0.4.zip
phpBB-3.0.2-RC1_to_3.0.4.zip
phpBB-3.0.2-RC2_to_3.0.4.zip

again, im doing manual updates "changed files only". It seems the packages include "all phpbb files" not the "changed files only" from previous version.

thanks in advance

If you have the 3.0.2 to 3.0.4, why do you need to go to 3.0.3 in between?

to make sure that changes from 3.0.2 to 3.0.3 are applied. then changes from 3.0.3 to 3.0.4. im not sure if they are the same as 3.0.2 to 3.0.4, that's why im asking if it safe to change manual updates from 3.0.2 to 3.0.4.

It also seems the packages include "all phpbb files" not the "changed files only" from previous version.

thanks!

4.ii. Changed files only

This package is meant for those wanting to only replace changed files from a previous version to the latest version. This package normally contains the changed files from up to five previous versions.

This package contains a number of archives, each contains the files changed from a given release to the latest version. You should select the appropriate archive for your current version, e.g. if you currently have 3.0.3 you should select the phpBB-3.0.3_to_3.0.4.zip/tar.gz file.

The directory structure has been preserved enabling you (if you wish) to simply upload the contents of the archive to the appropriate location on your server, i.e. simply overwrite the existing files with the new versions. Do not forget that if you have installed any MODs these files will overwrite the originals possibly destroying them in the process. You will need to re-add MODs to any affected file before uploading.

As for the other update procedures you should run install/database_update.php after you have finished updating the files. This will update your database schema and increment the version number.
got this from the install.html . this is what im looking for. changed files only from 3.0.2 to 3.0.3 and 3.0.3 to 3.0.4
