I downloaded the Automatic Update Package phpBB-3.0.6_to_3.0.7-PL1.zip
to upgrade from 3.0.6. I extract the contents and push it up to phpBB's root directory via FileZilla (called "forum"). I rename the install folder whilst I read some installation notes so users can still browse prior the upgrade. I rename back to installl and point my browser to the directory. I click on the Update tab and it goes through the database update phase; all comforting thus far (as per below image I stole from another post).
When I continue with the installation I get hit with the following error;
Now, my database is heavily MOD'd so please don't ask me to do a clean re-install - out of the question
. I did read other threads where I had to use the adm/style/install_update.html
file from the full download package as well as clearing the cache folder manually. I copied the adm/style/install_update.html
(from the full update package) to both the "phpBB-3.0.6_to_3.0.7-PL1.zip" extracted directory (then pushing it up to the appropriate path in the install foler), as well as in my current live forum structure. I guess I have several questions;
1. What is the root cause of this?
2. Why is the phpBB-3.0.6_to_3.0.7-PL1.zip still "broken", i.e; needing the adm/style/install_update.html
from the full package?
3. How do I resolve this?
Thanks in advance.
