Best way to get current from 3.0.12?

Post by RigNalScIn »

Have an embedded U10 install that was P2Vd (HyperV) & upgraded to U14. Finally moving to an updated (U18) host.

Not looking for in-depth assistance, just tips about any possible gotchas.

I'm assuming move existing install to new host and do in-place upgrades until current?

https://www.phpbb.com/support/docs/en/3 ... /upgrade3/

If you have a large board, my way would be do it (not really necessary) in steps (>>> 3.0.14 >>> 3.1.12 >>> 3.2.3) and on localhost (and keep intermediate backups). Database size smaller than 1.5 GB shouldn't be a problem online.


edit: corrected 3.0.12 to 3.1.12 (this was noticed by stevemaury)

We should embrace problems, without which there wouldn't be any solutions.

I assume warmweer means (>>> 3.0.12 >>> 3.1.14 >>> 3.2.3)

Actually I meant

3.0.12 >>> 3.0.14 >>> 3.1.12 >>> 3.2.3

I strongly advise against going through 3.1.14 because that version is not supported at all by phpBB.com ;)
(sorry stevemaury, I just couldn't resist this one :P )
