Update from old version 3.0.11

Post by rulehs » Tue Jun 19, 2018 5:12 pm

How can I update board from old version of 3.0.11 without affecting the style ? Every download package I look to download does not list 3.0.11 as a from version I suppose since it is old.
Can I get the previous updates to get it up to date ?

What do you mean by affecting the style? 3.0 style theme wont work on 3.1/3.2 & 3.1 wont work on 3.2. You need 3.2-3.2.2 to get it up to date. If you have mods installed you need to use STK to clean your db & Upgrade to 3.2 + you may need to edit some lines in 3.2.2 package Known issues in 3.2.2.

if you give us a link to your current board we can give you more specific details about what the upgrade will require and what you can and can not keep from your old board.

mainly just the colors.
I used an old style mod called Iconic Orange if I remember correctly.

Seems not that hard to style the 3.2 prosilver to your current style.
Just a few colour changes..

But I can't go straight from 3.0.11 to 3.2 can I ? At least I didn't see a package for that.

sometimes that works, but quite often it does not.

I suggest you upgrade from 3.0.11 to 3.1.12 first.

get the files here: https://download.phpbb.com/pub/release/ ... 3.1.12.zip
instructions here: https://www.phpbb.com/support/docs/en/3 ... /upgrade3/
once you have that working then make a database backup.


then follow the instructsions to upgrade from 3.1 to 3.2.1
files here: https://download.phpbb.com/pub/release/ ... -3.2.1.zip
instructions here: https://www.phpbb.com/support/docs/en/3 ... upgrade31/
then make a database backup.

then follow the instructions to update from 3.2.1 to 3.2.2
files here: https://www.phpbb.com/files/release/phpBB-3.2.2.zip
instructions here: https://www.phpbb.com/support/docs/en/3 ... ating-32x/
then make a new b ackup of the database.

this takes a little time but always works for me.


remember, backup, backup, backup the database at each step. that way if things go wrong you do not have to start over at the beginning.

luck,
robert
