Your prosilver is now version 3.2.7.
Where do you see that the board version is 3.2.5?
In the admin.

Can you set the style to prosilver, to see whether the language entries for PRIVACY_LINK | TERMS_LINK are found.

I did that.
The mediaembed plugin can't be installed. It doesn't work.

Slow answer due to powercuts, 3rd time in 2 days - currently on a very slow WiFi

Are the language entries found?
Did you uninstall the old version of the mediaembed extension (including the data) before trying to install the new version?

I installed the older version of mediaembed, yes.
I don't know if the language entries are found. I only use English.
I will try and and install phpbb 3.2.7 tomorrow with a 3.2 5 database insert. For now I have enough.

Please use the Quote function only when it is needed to make your reply clear and only quote the parts necessary not the whole post every time. Excessive quoting (especially of long messages and/or multiple images) makes reading the post extremely difficult.

The old version should be uninstalled completely before installing the new version

The language entries aren't visible with the Orange style, which is why I asked to try it with prosilver.

I´m not following you: installing 3.2.7 with a 3.2.5 database insert ? What does that mean?

Exactly that. I'm going to do a 3.2.7 install with the 3.2.5 database insert. As suggested by Warmweer.
If you are referring to viewtopic.php?f=556&t=2519381#p15302361, then I think that doesn't apply anymore:
a) because it's three days ago and I am clueless as to what your "3.2.5" database contains. AS far as I remember your updated board had errors like "No such file or directory" related to the mediaembed. As long as that extension isn't disabled properly updating won't work.
b) When you thought you were using 3.2.5, your prosilver was for version 3.2.2.

My suggestion now is to use a database backup from before you tried to update. Restore that with the files you used (before the update).
Uninstall the Orange Style (it's an old version anyway), uninstall the extensions.

That should give you a "clean" database of whichever version.
See if the 2 language elements show up - they should (and please report back because if they don't then something's fishy.)

Then you could update to 3.2.7 and only then install the updated Orangestyle and the extensions.

changed:
Install the extensions one by one, with testing before installing the next extension (in order to identify which extension would cause a problem).
Install the Orange style after everything works with the extensions.

Added at 10:29
I see you've installed again but I'm getting a white page.
How are you uploading the files? hostftp or you own ftp? (which one? in binary mode?)
Can you compare the filesize of the uploaded files to the filesize of a "clean" fileset downloaded form phpBB.com.

Hi Warmweer, I did this:
-uninstalled all extensions
-went back to prosilver
-uploaded the install and vendor folder
-installed 3.2.7
-installed all extensions
-installed OrangeBBes style

Already at the beginning I get that there is a new version of phpBB and that stays after I installed all extensions and the OrangeBBes style.
I think it is useless and I wait till the next phpBB release. Maybe that will change anything.

If that were the case there’d be thousands stuck on 3.2.5.

It won't.
Either you are doing something wrong or something wrong is in the database.

Regarding doing something wrong:

Hi Warmweer, I did this:

-uploaded the install and vendor folder
-installed 3.2.7
Why uploading the installl and vendor folder only? That is not what was recommended. The way I read it, you're either:
  • using autoupdate, which, in your situation (no modifications to your board) is plain wrong since there are no files to be modified, only replaced, plus it means the hostFTP is being used to upload the remaining files. That is something I (and others, including the phpBB Support Team) do NOT recommend, actually advise against.
    or
  • doing database update without having all 3.2.7 files present
If you trust me, I can take a look at it. But I will need either complete access to your FTP and the database (the last working version). (or a database backup) PM me if you're interested (I can have a look and probably update it this evening - no money involved (and you can PM in dutch so as to avoid miscommunication).

As for the rest. When wanting to update from 3.2.5 to 3.2.7, you go to Automatic update, choose 3.2.5 to 3.2.7 and then you get the option to download the package., That contains the install, vendor and docs folder.
