We have a long-standing phpBB message board that I am trying to migrate to a new host. The old phpBB is version 3.0.8 -- if I do a 1-click install of phpBB on the new host I get version 3.0.13.
I was able to follow the knowledge base article "Transferring Your Board to a New Host or Domain" almost all the way to the end, having successfully transferred all the files, backed up the database, restored the database with bigdump, restored the files, edited config.php, but ran into problems with the section called "Updating your database". The instructions in this section are vague. Where do I get the install folder to upload. I tried the one from 3.0.14 but it gave errors not finding include/startup.php.
What is the best way to proceed?
Thanks in advance,
