Upgrade 3.0.RC7 to 3.0.7-PL1

Post by playacofi »

I have a 7500 member forum and database in version 3.0.RC7. I would like to upgrade to 3.0.7-PL1, but cannot find an upgrade package to go from one to the other.

What is the best way to make the transition, and where can I find the upgrade package to use?

Do you have any MODs or extra styles?

No Mods, but I do have a few Google Ads which are easy to recreate.

First, update to 3.0.0 by doing this:
  • Upload all new files from a download of the full 3.0.0 ( http://sourceforge.net/projects/phpbb/f ... p/download )version, except for config.php, the /images and /files folders.
  • Go to yoursite.com/forumfolder/install/database_update.php
  • Let that run and then delete the install folder.
Then:
  • Upload all new files from a download of the full 3.0.6 version, except for config.php, the /images and /files folders.
  • Go to yoursite.com/forumfolder/install/database_update.php
  • Let that run and then delete the install folder.
  • You now have a new up to date board containing all your users and posts but without any MODs that you might have had installed.
