phpBB 3.1 and 3.0 with same users

Post by Whispere » Fri Jul 29, 2016 9:07 am

Hello,
I have 2 boards, both on version 3.0. And I want to update one of them to 3.1.x and second leave on 3.0 (its heavily modified). But when I tested install phpBB 3.1 and 3.0 in one database and merged by this tutorial https://deconf.com/two-phpbb-forums-with-same-users/ I checked, that phpBB 3.1 used different auth system.

So is any option how to solve it?

Solve what? Are you saying that the third party software you used is the problem?

To upgrade 3.0 to 3.1 you need to follow this.

I have 2 projects:
1) phpBB with mods
2) phpBB fully moded (I removed discussion and using phpBB as framework)

I want to convert only 1) to phpBB 3.1 and I need to keep compactibility.

Let me see if I have this right.

You have Board A and Board B currently both running phpBB 3.0.x but accessing the same database.

You want to upgrade, say, Board A to run on phpBB 3.1.x but still use the same database as Board B which is still on phpBB 3.0.x

If that is what you are trying to do then no it will not work as there are some significant changes to the database between 3.0 and 3.1. A 3.0 board will not run on a 3.1 database and neither will a 31. board run on a 3.0 database.

You will either have to upgrade them both or leave them on 3.0 - but note that 3.0 is EOL and support for it will cease at the end of the year.
