I was curious about the new features of phpbb Version 3.2.0. So I did a second test-install of the forum, basend on a recent update (actual version 3.1.10) on the web-space. After restore, this 2nd parallel install ran just fine like the original, so I started an update.
All went well (updating files ect), but when it came to the Database update, I saw the following:
i tried several versions:
- First, I used the Automatic update package and started the updater within the /install/ subfolder.
- Then I gave it a 2nd try. Installed the backup once again (tested: phpbb3.1.10 was running) and deleted all except of /images, /files, and .htaccess and config.php file. Uploaded the files from the ppbb 3.2.0 package. After that, I tried the auto-install routine with same result as posted above.
- Then I gave it another (3rd) try. Again, replaced files as descibed before, but now I ran the install/database_update.php command directly. This time, there was no error message and the board was accessible, but when I enter the admin-area I get a message that Update process has not been totally completed yet. Database has still Version status 3.2.0-dev, whereas file system is already on version 3.2.0.
