Phpbb 3.2.7 does not install with php 7.3

Post by tigernero79 » Tue May 07, 2019 8:13 am

I am trying to install phpbb 3.2.7 on an apache system with php 7.3.4 / 7.3.5

but the installation is blocked as it detects this php version and does not keep me going.

Possible should I return to php 7.2.x?

can I test the phpbb 3.3.x version and if so where can I download it? they say will be compatible with php 7.3.x

phpBB 3.2.x is not compatible with 7.3.x so you will have to downgrade to 7.2.x

phpBB 3.3 is not out yet.

You can certainly "test" 3.3 by creating a fork from the Github repository but you will also need to know how to create required dependencies.

I changed the PHP version to 7.2 during the installation. Then, when it was successful, I switched back to 7.3.5. Everything works.

You're not really gaining anything by doing that and you might find some things don't work.

It might appear to work but I can asure you that not everything works correctly and sooner or later you will encounter problems.

Anyway what is the urgency to run PHP 7.3?
