Update 3.0.11 to 3.2?

Post by GonzaloGM »

I know, I know... I should've updated a lot earlier. But is it possible to update 3.0 to 3.2? Or first I have to update to 3.1 and afterwards to 3.2? Thanks in advance.

You can go directly to 3.2

Thank you for the answer. Somewhere I read (two months ago) that I would have to upgrade to 3.1.x first.

I, too, am running 3.0.11 and had been waiting for 3.2 before I "make the move".

Thank you very much! :) I had seen this and this and there was no option for 3.0 to 3.2 so I was afraid it was not possible.

I updated it today directly from 3.0.7-PL1 to 3.2.0

- Do a really functional full backup of files and database (I needed them!). Example:

tar cvpfj forum-3.0.7-PL1.tar.bz2 ./public_html/
mysqldump --host=192.168.0.2 --user=forum --password=myforumuserpass --lock-tables --quick --verbose --databases forum | bzip2 > forum-3.0.7-PL1.sql.bz2


- Required minimum PHP is 5.4 (not 5.3)

- Don't use CLI to update database: php ./public_html/bin/phpbbcli.php --safe-mode db:migrate claims table phpbb_config_text doesn't exist and is unable to update BBDD.

- I required memory 64M and timeout 1200 in php.ini to update BBDD thru web at /install (don't try to go to root), this may vary:
max_execution_time = 1200 ; Maximum execution time of each script, in seconds (30)
memory_limit = 64M ; Maximum amount of memory a script may consume (8MB)


Results:

The database update was successful.

all of that is assuming that you have that kind of access to the server and know how to do all that.

for the rest of us, this is the best/basically the only good way to upgrade ( not update ) from 3.0 to 3.2:

Upgrading from phpbb 3.0.x to phpbb 3.2.x
  • Your server must be running at least PHP 5.4
  • MODs for 3.0.x are incompatible with 3.2.x and their functionality will be removed in the update process.
  • Styles for 3.0.x cannot be installed or used on 3.2.x.
  1. Backup up your board's files and database
  2. Download the Support Toolkit. Install it and run the database cleaner to remove all old MODs from the database.
  3. Deactivate all styles except for prosilver
  4. Ensure that the activated spambot countermeasure is one of the standard phpBB plugins (Simple image, GD image, GD 3D image, Q&A, reCaptacha).
  5. Set British English as the only language pack
  6. Delete all of your phpBB 3.0.x files EXCEPT for the following:
    • The config.php file
    • The /images/ directory
    • The /files/ directory
  7. Download the 3.2.x Full Package to your computer and unzip it.
  8. Delete the blank config.php file from it. (Note: you don't want to overwrite your original config.php file)
  9. Upload all the remaining files/folders to your server where your old board was.
  10. Browse to yourdomain.com/yourphpbb/install/ then click the update tab. Click update. This could take a long time on a large board, maybe hours. Dont give up.Keep clicking the continue button until you get a success message.
  11. Delete the folder named /install/
  12. Hold one foot in the air and spin around in a circle three times saying "I am a phpbb guru".
I'm baaaaaccckkkk. still doing work on donation basis. PM your needs.

[phpBB Debug] "Undefined index: user_email" in file \phpbb\notification\method\email.php on line 62

After updating from 3.0.12 to 3.2. Cheers

My forum is currently on 3.0.5, I want to eventually get it to the latest stable release.

I've tried Lumpy's 3.0 to 3.2 method outlined above several times on two different computers (one Windows, one Ubuntu) and can not get anywhere.

Now I'm going to try going to 3.1.x then to 3.2.x

Does Lumpy's method above work for 3.0.x to 3.1.x as well?

Thanks

You should start your own topic, this one is marked as solved (Image) and it’s over two years old, thanks.
