3.1.10 to 3.2 did not update?

Post by ScottyPC » Fri Feb 10, 2017 4:16 pm

I did the auto update package method
https://www.phpbb.com/support/documents ... pdate_auto

Everything seemed to work as expected...followed the prompts till it said it completed successfully. HOWEVER,
Upon returning to my ACP after deleting the install directory - it still insists I have 3.1.10 . I re-checked 3 times.

Strange right?

Everything on my forums is still working- but how to I get to 3.2?
Myphp is version 5.5.38 so that is not the issue.

ok - tried that it did update however it displayed all kinds of (topic) images in my list of forums. So I re-uploaded my backups (webpages and database). Everything back to square one and OK.

I'm assuming there was a glitch with an extension...SO - If I "disable" all 7 of my extensions and THEN try to update as suggested will that work? I can then upload the current phpbb 3.2 versions of needed extensions.

- or do I have to actually disable and then "delete" all the extensions prior to updating to 3.2?

Current Enabled Extensions (on phpbb 3.1.10)
Background Forum 1.0.4 - (says it works with 3.2)
Custom Header Logo 1.0.3 - (no longer needed with 3.2)
External Links Open in New Window 1.0.2 ( I have newer version for 3.2)
Forum Icons 1.0.2 ( I have newer version for 3.2)
Pages 1.0.4 ( I have newer version for 3.2)
Pages: TinyMCE WYSIWYG Add-on 3.1.0 (unknown - will deal with it later)
Username Colour Changer 1.0.2 ( I have newer version for 3.2)

Did it look something like viewtopic.php?p=14629311#p14629311?

If so, it is a known problem due to CSS changes in phpBB 3.2 not being detected by your browser. Press Ctrl + F5 in your browser and the problem will clear.

To make sure you users are not impacted the workaround is as follows:

Open up styles/prosilver/theme/stylesheet.css
Replace the contents with:

Code: Select all

/*  phpBB3 Style Sheet
    --------------------------------------------------------------
	Style name:			prosilver (the default phpBB 3.1.x style)
	Based on style:

	Modified by:		phpBB Limited ( https://www.phpbb.com/ )
    --------------------------------------------------------------
*/

@import url("normalize.css?v=3.2");
@import url("base.css?v=3.2");
@import url("utilities.css?v=3.2");
@import url("common.css?v=3.2");
@import url("links.css?v=3.2");
@import url("content.css?v=3.2");
@import url("buttons.css?v=3.2");
@import url("cp.css?v=3.2");
@import url("forms.css?v=3.2");
@import url("icons.css?v=3.2");
@import url("colours.css?v=3.2");
@import url("responsive.css?v=3.2");
Then also purge the forum cache and see if that helps your users.

Thank you so very much! This worked perfectly! :D

I drove myself nuts for 5 hours yesterday for no reason...the fix with accompanied suggestions was so simple!

Yeah! phpBB 3.2 is up and running!

Thank you DavidIQ and P_I - VERY helpful and spot on!
