It's not allowed to hire through this board, however, there are plenty of reputable people around here. We suggest you take a look at the signatures of prominent team or community members who offer their services and send these people a private message. Or we can help you in the support forums, for free!

The instructions for updating 3.2 are simple enough, see Knowledge Base - Updating 3.2.x, just follow the instructions verbatim.

There are no ‘threads’ in phpBB, they are topics.

Sorry Mick. i am not asking to hire, just to get some help! If anybody can and wishes me to make a donation to charity or something, that is different. But yes if somebody could help, that is all I am asking. I did try updating once befor and it stopped working, had to restore from backup but even that I had problems with!

so, exactly what problems are you having with updating/upgrading?

have you attempted to follow the instructions posted in the reply above?

if so, what happened. if not, then give it a try and see what happens.

updating from 3.2.1 to 3.2.2 is very quick and easy as long as you have and know how to use ftp.

Most users probably started installing phpbb without sufficient knowledge of phpbb, not to mention php, apache, mysql etc.. and mess something up in the beginning.
A way to avoid that is to test on your local PC using a personal webserver (WAMP, LAMP, EAsyPHP, etc...), free to download and play around with, and no risk of doing something irrepairable.
Updating is something will wil be necessary again in the future, and most probably upgrading also.
So my suggestion = download a personal webserver package, play around with it, take a backup of your online forum, install it on localhost, and try to update it. 2 hours of spare time each day, and by Monday you should be confident enough to update your forum yourself.

Personal opinion: you want to update from 3.2.1 to 3.2.2. >> I would wait until 3.2.3 is available (otherwise you may have to manually edit some core files) and use the time to get some experience with phpbb.
A bug is a feature that hasn't made it to the manual (yet)
