That is a question for support and would be an update seeing as how you’re on 3.2 already but Knowledge Base - Updating 3.2.x

What are you struggling with, how far did you get?

  1. You have to start by having the correct tools and some knowledge in their use - see Knowledge Base - Tools needed to set up and customise phpBB.
  2. You will need to be able to use FTP, see above for suggestions.
  3. It would be advantageous to be able to use a plain text editor but not 100% necessary to start.
  4. A working knowledge of cPanel or whatever your host supplies for file manipulation would be good.
  5. A working knowledge of phpMyAdmin could help.
  6. You will need ALL the information supplied by the host for your domain.
Armed with the above have another read of the KB I posted a link to earlier and follow it exactly. For items 2-5 there are plenty of tutorials available on the internet.

Please note: It is not recommended to use host supplied one-click installers and updaters as they’re known to cause issues.

For spam protection see Preventing Spam in phpBB3. I recommend you use the built in Q&A to control spam and how to use it Knowledge Base - How to configure Q&A CAPTCHA.
