Forum upgrade from 3.0.14 to 3.2.3

Post by zbuzanic » Thu Sep 27, 2018 10:26 am

Hi, I've performed upgrade to 3.2.3, but posts are blank, I have backup and I can go from start, but is there a way to fix it somehow? No errors are shown on site while browsing so it seems that posts are deleted?

ps. I see posts on old database but not sure how to reimport them and is that even safe to do... dump and import

I've reverted to 3.0.14 for now and dumped all post_text's will try later to fix it.


pps. solved the issue so this can be closed
1. reverted to 3.0.14
2. deleted all mods and copied 3.0.14 phpbb package over old forum
3. performed clear cache before upgrade
4. upgrade to 3.2.3 went OK this time
