Can't Update Database

Post by Cassie396 » Mon Oct 09, 2017 2:34 am

I just ran the upgrade for my forum to 3.2.1. The files were successful but the database was not - I'm trying to update via command line and it does it successfully. But the ACP says the install is incomplete and the database is only on version 3.2.0 dev.

If I rename the install file, the board displays fine, but I get a 500 error when trying to post.

Any thoughts? Already searched this board for hours... :?

And if you update the "normal" way => going to the install/ folder?

Unfortunately I get timeouts. I've tried several times and even had the host add time to my limit, but to no avail. :oops:

Is it the same board as this post?
viewtopic.php?f=556&t=2441851&p=14842111#p14842111

Did you edit your config.php?
from myqsl
naar $dbms = 'phpbb\\db\\driver\\mysqli';

If no change it and delete the folders in the cache directory

Sorry for the delay... work got super busy.

So I tried changing the config.php line and clearing the cache. I still couldn't post. Dumped the DB and imported a fresh copy. Changed config.php to the line you suggested and still no success. And I'm still getting timeouts if I try using /install to update the DB.

I just don't get it - I have other installations that work just fine. I'm beginning to wonder if maybe I could just import the users and posts into a fresh install... any other ideas?

You can't import users and posts into a other database.

Are the other installations on the same server?

Yes, the other installations are on the same server, same account even.

Just tried to clean the database and eliminate some 'extra' tables from a merge I did awhile back. I thought that might help, but it didn't.

I can't get the database updated past 3.2.0-dev!
