What actions did you take (updating your board)?
Backed up all files, MySQL database. Used auto update zip files/ uploaded changed files and updated database. Removed install folder.
Users can upload attachments
fine, but if they preview or submit the post, all but 1 attachment has vanished and it says the attachment "name of file" cannot be found (or similar). Only the first attachment uploaded is displayed and remains in the attachment list and showing inline.
Things I've tried to fix this:
I restored previous backed up files and reverted back to previous database backup. Checked it was working. Tried installing phpbb3 3.2.2 update again. I had to add mysqli to the config file to prevent the timeout error. All appeared to go well. Checked permissions of files folder (777), checked cookie settings, checked htaccess files were the same as previously, Still not working. So I overwrote phpbb3 files with a fresh download of full package (keeping original config.php, files, images and vendor folders). Carried out install again. Deleted install and cleared cache. Tested again, still has problem.
I have turned off attachments
until I can find a fix. Deleted all attachments
in files folder and removed all attachments
listed in Manage Attachments
in ACP. Did test again after clearing everything, but still occurring, so left attachments
Everything was working fine before update.
