Updating help please, used hostgator 1 click install

Post by Xj5178 » Sat Apr 07, 2018 3:43 pm

Hey all, I recently set up a phpBB forum and used the 1 click install within Hostgator's cPanel.

It installed 3.0.12 for some reason. I told hostgator that was an extremely outdated version to be using, and they directed me here.

My question is which version should I be updating to? I checked the download page (https://www.phpbb.com/downloads/) but unsure of which version to use. Is it okay to go from 3.0.12 directly to 3.2.2? I have no mods installed or anything. It's a fresh install.

Thanks!

If it's a fresh forum with no posts and so on, then why not just install latest 3.2.2?

I got ahead of myself and opened the forum already. So, there's already 150 members and posts now.

Perfect, thank you! I just wanted to make sure it was OK to jump versions like that. Wasn't sure if I had to upgrade to 3.1, and then to 3.2.
