HTTP Error 500 when upgrade to phpbb 3.2 from 3.1.6

Post by samalvorio » Thu May 25, 2017 11:19 pm

What version of phpBB are you using? phpBB 3.1.6
What is your board's URL? http://tuxnews.it/forum/
Who do you host your board with? ovh
What is your php version? 7.0
How did you install your board? I used the download package from phpBB.com
Is registration required to reproduce this issue? No
Do you have any MODs installed? No
Do you have any extensions installed? No
What styles do you currently have installed? we_universal
What language(s) is your board currently using? Italian
Which database type/version are you using? MySQL 5
What is your level of experience? Basic. Not so much.

What actions did you take (updating your board; installing a MOD, style or extension; etc.) prior to this problem becoming noticeable? I simply downloaded the auto-update package from here https://www.phpbb.com/downloads/, selected from 3.1.6 (my currently phpbb board) to 3.2.0.
I Extracted the .zip file and paste install, vendor and docs folder inside the root of the forum (where config file is).
After that, i followed the link to update contained inside Forum-->PCA-->System and...error 500 appeared.
I tryed also to follow index.html link contained inside install folder manually, but that's not the problem.
I also tryed to set ALL files permissions contained in forum to 777 but nothing changed. Same error.

What i can do?

Thanks.

That guide said:

" 6. Set British English as the only language pack" but i can't, because when i try to set as primary language, board write:

"The followed language files were not founds inside British English folder:
» LICENSE
» VERSION
» email/short/index.htm
» AUTHORS

i tried to upload again British English language pack, but nothing changes (btw, there aren't this files inside that language pack :roll:).

Check your .htaccess file.

Yes. Copy the file somewhere, then delete it from your hosting. See if a new one is created on the host and check again if it works. Otherwise place the old one back.

You tried to upload the 3.1 language pack? https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/download/131901

Because those files are most certainly in the zip.

DongAngelo: i tryied, but don't work. And there aren't new .htaccess created automatically, so i simply uploaded the old one again.

RMcGirr83: yes, i tried that file. I need to try to find them with the full .zip package of 3.1? Ok, i'll try this.

Try replacing your current .htaccess file content with the following:

Code: Select all

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine on

#
# Uncomment the statement below if URL rewriting doesn't
# work properly. If you installed phpBB in a subdirectory
# of your site, properly set the argument for the statement.
# e.g.: if your domain is test.com and you installed phpBB
# in http://www.test.com/phpBB/index.php you have to set
# the statement RewriteBase /phpBB/
#
#RewriteBase /

#
# Uncomment the statement below if you want to make use of
# HTTP authentication and it does not already work.
# This could be required if you are for example using PHP via Apache CGI.
#
#RewriteRule .* - [E=HTTP_AUTHORIZATION:%{HTTP:Authorization},L]

#
# The following 3 lines will rewrite URLs passed through the front controller
# to not require app.php in the actual URL. In other words, a controller is
# by default accessed at /app.php/my/controller, but can also be accessed at
# /my/controller
#
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ app.php [QSA,L]

#
# If symbolic links are not already being followed,
# uncomment the line below.
# http://anothersysadmin.wordpress.com/2008/06/10/mod_rewrite-forbidden-403-with-apache-228/
#
#Options +FollowSymLinks
</IfModule>

# With Apache 2.4 the "Order, Deny" syntax has been deprecated and moved from
# module mod_authz_host to a new module called mod_access_compat (which may be
# disabled) and a new "Require" syntax has been introduced to mod_authz_host.
# We could just conditionally provide both versions, but unfortunately Apache
# does not explicitly tell us its version if the module mod_version is not
# available. In this case, we check for the availability of module
# mod_authz_core (which should be on 2.4 or higher only) as a best guess.
<IfModule mod_version.c>
	<IfVersion < 2.4>
		<Files "config.php">
			Order Allow,Deny
			Deny from All
		</Files>
		<Files "common.php">
			Order Allow,Deny
			Deny from All
		</Files>
	</IfVersion>
	<IfVersion >= 2.4>
		<Files "config.php">
			Require all denied
		</Files>
		<Files "common.php">
			Require all denied
		</Files>
	</IfVersion>
</IfModule>
<IfModule !mod_version.c>
	<IfModule !mod_authz_core.c>
		<Files "config.php">
			Order Allow,Deny
			Deny from All
		</Files>
		<Files "common.php">
			Order Allow,Deny

		</Files>

	<IfModule mod_authz_core.c>

			Require all denied
		</Files>
		<Files "common.php">
			Require all denied
		</Files>
	</IfModule>
</IfModule>

I tried to upload the British Language pack (that i take from phpbb 3.1 full .zip) but those files are not there too.
I Replaced my .htaccess with a new one containing that strings, but same problem (btw, my old .htaccess was very similar).
I can't follow that guide if i can't set British Language pack as primary language.

Why have you not got the default British English installed? All sites should have the en language pack and prosilver style installed whether they are used or not.
