Thanks alot!
I installed a virtual Windows server and:
I managed to install and restore the old forum with 2.0.17 and then upgraded it to 3.0.
However, now I'm stuck when I'm trying to upgrade to 3.2.4, since the php version easyPHP 1.8 is running is to old.

Any suggestions on how to proceed with the upgrade of php/phpBB?
The old versions of EasyPHP were just to make sure phpBB v2 and phpbb 3.0 would work.
Now you have a phpBB3 board and you need a virtual server on which phpBB 3.0 and phpBB 3.2 will work.

First, make a copy of your 3.0 database and config.php.
For a new webserver you could upgrade to a more recent version of EasyPHP but the highest php version is 5.3. From php 5.4 on it is called DevServer and is more complicated to set up (you can't just upgrade EasyPhp any further).

So I suggest you use USBWebserver which comes as a zipfile (use version 8.6) , and all you need to do is to unpack it to a directory (call it USBwebserver). That's it: you're ready to go.

Start USBwebserver, use your backup of the database to create the 3.0 database which you will upgrade.
Make your directory (forum or something) in the www directory (of USBWebserver). (use the same name as you did for phpBB2)
Download phpbb 3.1.12 and unpack into that directory.
edit the config.php (if necessary) so that it points to the correct database.
Then update database only.
When succesful, take a backup of the database just in case.
Next is upgrading to 3.2.4 (download the full package, unzip, and again update database only). Then apply the fixes mentioned in the sticky topic for 3.2.4.

Congratulations: you now have a 3.2.4 board.

edit: I just saw Mick's message when submitting.
Considering this is the first time you've used a personal webserver I would not do this with WAMP yet (it has to be configured properly). Use USBwebserver which comes preconfigured and ready to use. (and you might even decide to keep if because it's so simple to use)
Once your 3.2.4 board is fully functional, then you can install Wampserver. and switch between php versions, database engines, etc..
A bug is a feature that hasn't made it to the manual (yet)

Thanks once again warmweer, you are my personal hero :)

However.. I still have some questions..

What is the best way to make a copy of my phpBB3 database? (If MyPhpAdmin, any settings I should be aware of?)

On the new virtual server running USBWebserver, do I have to create a new database and use phpdump to import the phpBB3 database?

If your database engine is MYSQL and your tables are MyISAM format then you could just copy the whole directory of your database (from EasyPHP) to USBWebserver/mysql/data/ (so in here this would result in a new subdirectory (forum/) with all the files in it). That ONLY works with mysql AND MyISAM!!!
The safest way is of course to dump and import.

I forgot (in my previous post) to mention that you should change config.php (mysql to mysqli)

Ah!
Didn't realise I had to install the forum first.
I installed the forum, couldn't use "phpbb3_" as prefix because of max string length.
Installed the forum with "bb_" as prefix. Used search and replace on the .sql file phpbb3_ > bb_

Now I'm getting this error:

I have a feeling you've only dumped the data.
You need to export the original database with create table statements.

But just as a test, try this first

You have a directory Easyphp/mysql/data/forum (or something like that)
You also have a directory USBWebserver/mysql/data

Copy the /forum (with everything inside) to USBwebserver/mysql/data/ so that you end up with USBwebserver/mysql/data/forum/
and then use phpMyAdmin to test if everything is readable.


BTW you do not have to install the forum first. You only need the database from your 3.0. Once the database is in place, then put the 3.1.12 files in
USBWebserver/root/forum/

I've copied the folder containing the database and I can browse it in phpMyAdmin on the new server.
I've copied the config.php from my old server and updated it with the new database password and changed from mysql to mysqli.

When i visit http://localhost:8080/phpBB3 I get the following message:
General Error

SQL ERROR [ mysqli ]

Table 'test02.phpbb3_ext' doesn't exist [1146]

An sql error occurred while fetching this page. Please contact an administrator if this problem persists.

A database is a file not a container?

And if you see your database in phpmyadmin are the tables there?
Screen print maybe?

Did you go to the /install/ folder to update the database?

Table 'test02.phpbb3_ext' doesn't exist [1146]
table _ext ??
phpbb 3.0 doesn't have that table. That was introduced in 3.1 for the extensions and shouldn't be present in your 3.0 database

Just to have a method for comparison;
make a new empty database (call it 3014 for clarity) and then install a new 3.0.14 board. Compare that database to the one you want to upgrade for 3.1.12

your config should look contain something like this
$dbhost = 'localhost';
$dbport = '';
$dbname = 'your databasename';
$dbuser = 'root';
$dbpasswd = 'usbw';
$table_prefix = 'your tableprefix'

You should actually go to http://localhost:8080/phpBB3/install/app.php
