I can't go that way, as both PhpBB's core files and the template's files are "contaminated" by old mods either adding new files, or modifying files, adding required calls, classes (I got a new bug since the update to .14, yet another additional class not found in the server's error logs breaking a new part of the admin CP, I lost two hours trying to understand why oh god why), cross-references, a whole mess.Lumpy Burgertushie wrote:however, before you upgrade to 3.1 you still need to remove all the old MODs from your 3.0 database. you do that by installing the STK as mentioned above. run the database cleaner.
BACKUP EVERYTHING FIRST
once you have done that, test your 3.0 board to see if there are any errors based on old MODs. if not, then simply remove all the old 3.0 files/folders except for the config.php file and upload all new 3.1 files/folders except for the config.php file .
then, run the install/database_update.php file ( if you are upgrading to 3.1 ).
then, upload your backups of your files folder and images folder.
after that , if you have errors related to old MODs you will have to remove their modules from the admin panel manually.
That reminds me of the wordpress support forums where I'd eventually recommend to delete everything save the wp-upload and wp-config folders, huhu.3Di wrote:In fact, that's not your case.

Hey, nice tool! I may use that, as one of the "broken" features of my current forum is that there's a crash upon registering a new account, and I wanted to test with a new fresh admin account.3Di wrote:1 - delete all but .htaccess and index.htm from your cache folder.

a new founder/admin is provided for you to use and see.. there is a version for 3.0.x and one for 3.1.x.

I may give that one a go. Among the tests I ran there was the renaming of the forum cookie so that there would be no "competition", but that didn't change things.3Di wrote:4 - check you cookies: file to fix them, 3.0.x. and 3.1.x compatible
