Stuck in database update 3.0.12 > 3.1.2

Post by pandelis0512 »

Hi all,

My forum is here: http://www.lexique.org/addons/phpbb3/index.php

I tried to update the phpBB from 3.0.12 to 3.1.2.
I used this method:
https://www.phpbb.com/support/docs/en/3 ... /upgrade3/

I stuck on the "Updating database" step. I thought that I was going to make my forum in English and to be sure that it was in prosilver before trying again the update.

So I tried to come back to the old version.
I restored the database and the phpbb3.0.12 files and I receive the error:
"NO_STYLE_DATA"

Would you have any idea?

Best regards,

You have 3.0.12 files.

You need to put the 3.1.2 files on the server and run the install/database_update.php file.

Thanks for your answer !
I just put the 3.1.2 files on the server and run the install/database_update.php file.
Then I get stuck to the following screen:
"Updating database to latest stable release

Database type :: mysql4
Previous version :: 3.0.12"

Any idea?

If I understand the question, I had a similar problem, php on the server kept timing out. I just hit reload (or the "next step" button if you get there) repeatedly. It eventually worked, but I was on pins and needles until it did.

I never get to the "next step" button.
Nevertheless I tried I hitting reload more than 10 times and nothing happens. I keep being on the "Updating database" page...

I think a solution could be to go back to 3.0.12 and then set my forum to British_English and prosilver and then go again to 3.1.2 but I have the
""NO_STYLE_DATA" error...

Make sure the /store folder is writeable.

Many thanks ! Now the database has been updated successfully.

Unfortunately I have a new problem when I try to go on the forum:
"Language file ./language/fr_x_strict/common.php couldn't be opened."

So I tried to install the French language pack but the problem remains... (I think because the folder fr_x_strict does not exist)

That's because you used to have a language pack installed which you now don't have on 3.1.

There is a French language pack for 3.1.2 but you might have to change the folder name to the one you had to get in and then uninstall that and rename it back to what it should be

So everything is working now. Thank you sooo much !

I'm trying to uninstall the french laguage in order to reinstall it with the good name but it refuses because it is the "default language"... I tried to change this but did not find where...

Language folders tend to have very specific names so they shouldn't really be changed.

Try switching the default to British English. Then you can uninstall the French one.

Thanks,
Everything is ok now... (except that all my users do have not the French language but the British English now but I guess that there is no solution to that)

Best

Once you've set the french folder name to the one you used to have you would need to uninstall that and then change the folder name on the server back to what it should be /fr
Then you can reinstall it and your users will have French buttons and common text.

But once I do that, French is not their default language anymore is it?

You can set the default language in the board settings.

Perhaps that I misunderstood something or that I was not completely clear.
I deleted British English and now I reinstalled it and finally I have again:
578 users for French
and 0 users for British English

Thank you again for your support!
