Update 3.0.12 to 3.1.10

Post by niconeo »

Dear guys,

I have my own server and I install manually phpBB 3.0.12 by sftp (I have no ftp server, automatic update is not possible).
I would like to know if it is exist a way to update my old version to the last version without losing data.
I searched on the forum but I think each version as different ?

Thanks for your help.

Upgrading from phpbb 3.0.x to phpbb 3.1.x
  • Your server must be running at least PHP 5.3.3 and less than PHP 7
  • Most MODs for 3.0.x are incompatible with 3.1.x and their functionality will be removed in the update process.
  • Styles for 3.0.x cannot be installed or used on 3.1.x.
  1. Backup up your board's files and database
  2. Download the Support Toolkit. Install it and run the database cleaner to remove all old MODs from the database.
  3. Deactivate all styles except for prosilver
  4. Ensure that the activated spambot countermeasure is one of the standard phpBB plugins (Simple image, GD image, GD 3D image, Q&A, reCaptacha).
  5. Set British English as the only language pack
  6. Delete all of your phpBB 3.0.x files EXCEPT for the following:
    • The config.php file
    • The /images/ directory
    • The /files/ directory
  7. Upload the contents of the phpBB3 directory from the uncompressed 3.1.x Full Package (EXCEPT for config.php) into your forum's directory (Note: you don't want to overwrite your original config.php file)
  8. Browse to yourdomain.com/yourphpbb/install/database_update.php and keep clicking the continue button until it says it is finished. This will take a long time on a large board, maybe hours. Dont give up.
  9. Delete the folder named /install/
  10. Hold one foot in the air and spin around in a circle three times saying "I am a phpbb guru".
if you can install using sftp then you do have a ftp server, you just access it using sftp.
either way, the instructions above is what you need to do.

luck,
robert

I saw in source code that folder "store", "phpbb" and "cache" need to 777. Problem fixed. I continue ;)

Hi there,

also trying to upgrade from 10.0.14 to 3.1

In step 8, I don't see any button just a blank page :( I kept refreshing the page endlessly but nothing happened .

Any ideas?

don't refresh, just wait. it sometimes takes a long time for it to finish that step before you get a continue button.

Thanks, Robert. Unfortunately, that does not help either. Anyway, I've been asked to open a new topic by the admins and will do so. However, I'm trying out a couple of things before i do that.

OK, I got it 8-) Seems that the upload did not work correctly, I repeated the upload and then everything went fine.
