phpBB 2.0.22 to 3.2.4 conversion error... MySQL 8.0

Post by mrobin604 » Mon Nov 19, 2018 8:26 am

Hi there,
I'm trying to migrate my phpbb database to the current version of phpbb with the install converter. It gives me an SQL error as follows:

SQL ERROR [ mysqli ]

You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'groups\x0AWHERE (groups.group_single_user = 0)\x0A LIMIT 2000' at line 2 [1064]


SELECT groups.group_id, groups.group_type, groups.group_name, groups.group_description FROM phpbb_groups groups WHERE (groups.group_single_user = 0) LIMIT 2000
in file C:\marsh\shga_website\forum\phpBB3\phpbb\db\driver\driver.php on line 997

As it turns out, 'groups' is a protected keyword in mysql 8.0... joy.

Any way I can get around this problem with a quick edit to the installer code? I took a brief look and didn't see anything obvious to change.
