So I have a larger community.
We're currently on 3.0.14
Our Database is about 1.1 GB
I'm well aware of this guide: https://www.phpbb.com/support/docs/en/3 ... /upgrade3/
But. Before I commit to the update process, and risk screwing up the database (and naturally just throwing back up the backup that would've been made before any changes would have been committed.)
I do not have access to any commands, as the guide explains for larger boards as I use One.com :
Is there any risks, or results I can expect from going through the regular process (visiting /install/database_update.php)For large boards, you may wish to update via the command line. From your board's root, execute the following command: php ./bin/phpbbcli.php db:migrate --safe-mode
Will it work? Or is it a fruitless endevor?
Is there another way to do it with a large database?
I've been attempting to back up the database, and import it onto a different database (I have a few) and copy over the site files. In order to test it out myself. But so far the entire process on that project to test it out has been fruitless (yes I updated the config file to read the other database name and password, etc. Although I'll admit I unsure what I did wrong, and will continue to test it out. Hopefully finding a solution sometime soon..)
