Upgrading from 3.2.8 to 3.2.9 using the full 3.2.9 package has given me a lot of issues.
Backup all board files and the database.
Went to phpBB.com downloads page and download the 3.2.9 "Full Package" archive.
Unpacked the archiveand removed the config.php file, and the /images, /store and /files folders from the package.
Went to the ACP, Board settings, and make sure prosilver is set as the default style. disabling my current style
Deleted the /vendor and /cache folders from the board???s root folder on the host.
Via Filezilla upload the remaining files and folders to the root folder of my board
Tried to open the Install page - bang get the error
Please describe your problem.
Not sure if related: There was a phishing hack a few days back on my site. Which has been removed (confirmed by Google and the Netcraft Takedown service)
My ISP has investigated and tried updating the PHP versions however, the issue is still not fixed. They have confirmed with their admins.
My PHP version is 7.3.
Can I delete the forum and install the latest version 3.3.0 using the same location and DB name, then import the files and database I backed up (as part of the upgrade process)?
Or do I have to reinstall 3.2.8 and import my data?
I don't want to lose any content or user accounts basically?
My ISP has an option to install v3.3.0 as a script - hence the question.
