Will there be an Auto Update Download for PHPBB 3.2.1 ?

Post by mrix2000 » Tue Nov 07, 2017 9:16 am

Hello all, my site has a fair few extensions installed so I have been waiting on an auto update package to upgrade to phpbb 3.2.1 but whenever I look there never appears to be one :?
I notice there has been a few security fixes so I am very concerned about getting my 3.2 version updated asap.

What is the easiest / best option to update without an auto package ?

Thanks for any feedback all

You only need the auto update if you have made hard coded changes to your site. Extensions don't do that.
I don't think there is going to be another autoupdate until v3.2.2.

Without it, you just upload new files, run the database update and you're done.

Just updated three of my phpbb3.2 forums which all went totally fine and painlessly :D 8-)
Thought it would be so much more difficult without the auto update :shock:

Thanks
