Does anyone know what the overall upload size of phpBB 3.2.5 is supposed to be?

What is upload size?
24188811 give or take a couple of 500 (config.php)
something you could easily find out by downloading a fresh set (zipped just less than 8MB).

But if you're planning on doing a size compare you'll have to empty the /cache first (and perhaps some things in /store).

Better do a file/directory compare which will give immediately identify any changes to the files (if that's what you're worried about).

Okay, so I went through... went step-by-step to dismantle, uninstall, and remove phpBB 3.2.5 and all of the problems going on with it... however, I removed the install directory after the update to the database, which it basically skipped through because it was already done, and I now am unable to get the thing to load at all. http://www.wolvesau.net/wh/fantasy is the address. WHISKEY TANGO FOXTROT!!!

Oh, and before anyone asks, let me answer... I had no extensions, no coding changes to anything, and only changed images in Latte. I deleted absolutely everything except the four directories and the config.php, which I went ahead and downloaded to my system, anyway, for backup purposes. I left out config.php from the upload, as I was told to do. My PHP is 7.2.7.

Manually empty the cache directory on the server leaving just .htaccess and index.htm, then refresh your browser

Why? Would have been easier just to upload prosilver and install it.

I can see

Code: Select all

Index of /wh/fantasy
Name	Last modified	Size	Description
Where is .htaccess?
You only have 11 directories at root level (17 is expected, counting the install).
It seems the upload was far from perfect?

Today has been a learning process. There were other steps I had to take, other things I had to troubleshoot and, once I had them all done, all was working, again. Now, if I can just figure out why notifications aren't going out to folks. I've tried to have that answered as a support question, before, and zero answers helped. I have been trying to communicate with my space provider to see if there's anything they can do, and they've yet to communicate back with me.

Thank you, all for your help, I'm truly grateful. I may never upgrade, again, because it's a hassle the likes of which I don't have life to spend on.

updating/upgrading is usually very quick and easy as long as you follow the correct instructions exactly.

since you now have it working properly future updates should be quite easy.

however, if you don't update when the updates come out, it will just be making the update harder for you down the line.

if people are not getting their notifications it is usually because they have not made their settings properly in their personal user profile.
or, if the emails are not going out then there is likely something wrong with our email settings for the board.

create your own email address at your hosting control panel. use that for all board emails.

leave the smtp set to no unless you know specifically that your host requires it ( not likely ).

As Lumpy said, that's not a good approach and will cause problems in the future.
You're up to date now and have had to work to get everything back to your needs.

Take the time now to identify and document the changes made (in relation to a clean install) for future reference. The more updates you postpone, the more difficult it will become to update anyway (specifically for styles).
