Need to Update

Post by pondrocket » Tue Nov 21, 2017 9:49 pm

I have never update my forum and need to. I'm currently on 3.1.3 and would like to update to the latest model. I would like to use the Automatic update. I need some guidance on this . Also when updating should I shut the site down until done or just update and go from there?

There is no automatic update for a upgrade from 3.1 to 3.2

See viewtopic.php?f=556&t=2376856#convert3
for the How to.

And yes you have to set the forum offline before the backup and set it online after the update and test.
Sorry! My English is bat ;) !!!

FWIW - You’re upgrading not updating and there is no “auto upgrade path”. The upgrade from 3.1 to 3.2 requires a file replacement.

There are no ‘threads’ in phpBB, they are topics.
