Please describe your problem. Left database type as unknown as options through me off. ACP says mysql 10.0.31 MariaDB

I followed the instructions to the letter. disabled extensions, deleted the files it said on the server and in the package properly. Had one single file that had to be requeued and run again but was successful.
At the database step, first time I hit the button it said something about not finding a database or, some weird message. didn't freak yet, started the process over and it began to update. Got to 97% done(so close) before it gave the timeout error.
"The installer has detected a timeout, you may try to refresh the page, which may lead to data corruption. We suggest that you either increase your timeout settings or try to use the CLI."

I did a search for this error and saw just a few topics where this error happened in different ways it seems to me. So I don't know if all solutions are equal. One referred someone to the "known issue" at the top of the support forum but I'm not sure if that's what applies here. That "may lead to data corruption" warning scares me... ha. I don't want to guess my way through this and mess something up.

I'm going to check a few things, like the config.php file I saw others mention to check... whatever I do, I just want to make sure I don't just try things and hope for the best so I'm asking for directions here. :) This is the first time I've done a manual update like this, usually do the automatic but the download page recommended manual for this update so it's what I tried.

no, 3.1.9 And, it had been a while... I know. :(
EDIT: I was wondering why you asked that. Went back and looked. Maybe I missed that and it was pre-selected or I hit the wrong thing. Fixed it.

Funny thing, I think... the ACP is still accessable and in it, it now says the database is 3.2.1 but the files are 3.2.2 odd...

anyway... the config files does say mysql... also has a nice warning in there about not changing anything.

Code: Select all

<?php
// phpBB 3.0.x auto-generated configuration file
// [b]Do not change anything in this file![/b]
$dbms = 'mysql';
$dbhost = 'localhost';

[removed idenifiable info]

$table_prefix = 'phpbb_';
$acm_type = 'file';
$load_extensions = '';

@define('PHPBB_INSTALLED', true);
// @define('DEBUG', true);
// @define('DEBUG_EXTRA', true);
?>

Yea, i got that a couple times, its an old error, just add an i to mysql (mysqli) in the config and itll pass by the error. Then remove the i when youre done.

saw that recommended. Going to wait for confirmation... but, if I do that, do I then click the update tab and start the database update over again.?

So weird... add the i, then take it off later?

there is no reason to take it off. mysql is deprecated in the newer php versions. just change it to mysqli and leave it like that.

It's amazing how one little i can cause so much trouble.
Put the i in, started the database update over again, and all seems well so far. Finished the update and now poking around at changes.
Forum looks a little different, header image is gone, but that will all be worked out. :)
Thanks for the help.
