When did your problem begin? today
Please describe your problem. Not a problem with my install per se, but I am struggling to find installs for migration from 3.0.8 to 3.1.0 (or even from 3.0.8 to 3.0.12)
When I go to https://www.phpbb.com/downloads/3.0/ select the 'automatic update' tab, and then select phpBB 3.0.8 from the dropdown I am redirected to the 'Download phpBB 3.1' page (https://www.phpbb.com/downloads/?mode=u ... sion=3.0.8) where the only option to to reselect from another dropdown that doesn't have version 3.0.8 in the dropdown list!

So how do I get automatic update download(s) to get me from 3.0.8 to 3.1.0 (or even via 3.0.12)? (I suspect this is a bug on the downloads page)

Thanks

Updating to 3.0.10, which is already 2 years out of date, seems pointless.

Update packages to 3.0.12 are here: https://download.phpbb.com/pub/release/ ... to_3.0.12/

and if you want to update to 3.1 you don't need to update to 3.0.12 first.



also, if you do update to 3.1 you will lose all your MODs and extra styles etc.

none of them will work in 3.1

this may be a good time to evaluate what MODs you have and decide if you really need all that for your members.

Thanks Oyabun1. That's exactly what I needed. And I was planning in heading to 3.0.12
And thanks to Lumpy Burgertushie for the response ... is that really true that all the mods will fail to work in 3.1.0? The one that my members are really attached to is 'phpBB Calendar'. So I might just have to stop at 3.0.12 if I can't find a suitable alternative

3.1 uses extensions instead of MODs. they are completely different.

however, many of the most popular MODs either have been or are going to be converted into extensions.

keep a check on the extensions forums here to see if and when a calendar extension becomes available.


luck,
