phpBB does not "automatically update. Many host one-click install programs do.

Like Steve said, this should be the answer, if you used GoDaddy's Installatron to make create your phpBB 3.2.5 installation. The Installatron control panel has a setting where you can select "no updates"; here you can see an example screen shot of where that setting is. It's definitely not phpBB itself that "automatically updates without your knowledge."

The recommendation from phpbb.com/community is that you don't use a third-party installer at all, let alone the automatic update feature. Because "what did the third-party installer actually do?" is an unknown compared to using the official phpBB.com download and manual installation process.

I actually appreciate and use the Installatron installation, updating, backup and restore features. But be forewarned that some support responses won't go any further than "replace your installation with an official installation or we can't help you." You can also get responses that try to help identify what the problem actually is, since there are plenty of phpBB issues that occur which have nothing to do with how phpBB was installed, and/or can still happen even when using the official phpBB.com download.

and, there have been plenty of issues traced straight to the once click installers. installatron may not cause those problems that some of the others do.

keep in mind that those one click script installers are not the hosting company's software either. they pay for that software to offer it to their customers.

the point of bringing that up is that the hosts do not offer support for the programs installed using it either.

because of all those things, it is best to not use them and just install phpbb properly using the downloads you get from here and following the proper install instructions.

Best way is to remove hosters Version and install your own.

Some hosters allow to change from 1-click-install to own Version.
Best regards from Outi .... ;) :D

they don't really have any choice. as long as you have ftp access you can delete the host installed version and do your own on any host.
