I just made the database name phpbb3_1 and it works fine.steve59 wrote:You seem to have a script which tests phpbb-database names, would you be so kind to test a
name with an underscore _ sign in it?
My test board happened to be 3.1.4 which I updated to 3.1.6 before I started to test and that involved running the database_update.php which ran perfectly.steve59 wrote:Besides that we got the error when we were running an update (install/database_update.php). Might that give other results?
(because this file is not a part of an operational phpbb-forum)
I think it's a server side redirection of some sort (anything added to an htaccess file you've forgotten about?). The config.php file basically says this is the information I need to connect to the database, so that's where I'm going to look. If that is then being redirected to a different location, that sounds very much like it's something outside of phpBB that's doing it.
