Don't mean to sound helpless, but is there any way the less technically savvy people here (such as myself) can get some instrucitons on how to apply this fix? It has completely broken my board.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Open the files mentioned in the Github link linked by Marc in the opening post in a suitable text editor. Remove the red highlighted code and add the green code. Re-upload the files, that’s it.

Hi, it looks like this issue has been known for well over a month, so imagine my surprise that when I upgraded my forum tonight I was bitten by this bug. And I'm not even using any extensions. Given the criticality of this issue, it seems like maybe either a hotfix release should have been pushed or version 3.2.4 should have been pulled? Or at least a note provided on the download page saying that it shouldn't be downloaded and that upgrades should go to 3.2.3 instead.

At the very least it would have been nice to have some sort of indication that I'd have to apply a fix, rather than do a bunch of late-night debugging on the software with mysterious errors like

Code: Select all

PHP Fatal error:  Call to undefined method bbcode::bbcode() in /home/.../includes/functions_content.php on line 630
(the text of which I'm posting because searching on that error didn't find anything either and I want to help others to actually find the problem in question).

PHP 7.3 isn't compatible, this is apparently a known issue - I tried to install using PHP 7.3.0, and it failed the install on adding bots (a timeout occurred or something). Downgraded to PHP 7.1 and it worked fine.

Just thought I'd share this bit of info because I've seen incompatibilities related to PHP 7.3 on live installs, but not anything about installation, so here's my say. :)

php 7.3 is fresh as a mint, so it will take some time to make it fully compatible with phpbb.

Yeah, I know :P

Just wanted to let the team/contributors know that there's an installation issue as well

Not apparently, it is. 3.2.4 has never been PHP 7.3 compatible nor was it ever announced it was, it's too new.

Yeah - I was just highlighting to look in the installer code if necessary for 3.2.5

https://www.phpbb.com/support/docs/en/3.2/ug/ says
PHP 5.4.7+ with support for the database you intend to use.
7.3 > 5.4.7 ;)

PHP 7.3 didn't exist until November 2018 when 3.2.4 was released.

Closing this as the recommended way to fix the issues in 3.2.4 is to update to 3.2.5. ;)
