I have been trying to find a way to install phpBB 3.2.5 with my backup SQL. It has been a roller-coaster ride! Every time I advance closer I get multiple errors at different times & different activities.
When I install phpBB 3.2.5 the board works well with the default DB. When I import my backup the board will launch though fraught errors.
After installing phpBB dozens of times on the host server and on the localhost I may have finally moved closer to my goal. As of now, I have phpBB 6.2.5 working with my backup SQL data. The Prosliver theme displays and I can see all of the topics, posts, users etc..
The solution to get to this point was to export certain tables from the default DB to the DB with my backup in it. I had to delete some tables prior to importing tables plus add tables. Moving folders and files around to new locations in the folder phpBB/ was a must. And finally, change the php coding in some of the php files. Truly wild!
Not done by any means! Two errors have reviled themselves:
1. When I log in, the statistics at the bottom of the page are correct. Ferther up the page in the topic listings all statistics are 0, see images:
Any one have thoughts on where the disconnect may be?
2. When registering a new user, after accepting the agreement the following error displays:
Fatal error: Uncaught Symfony\Component\DependencyInjection\Exception\ServiceNotFoundException: You have requested a non-existent service "5". in C:\xampp7\htdocs\phpBB3\vendor\symfony\dependency-injection\ContainerBuilder.php:809 Stack trace: #0 C:\xampp7\htdocs\phpBB3\vendor\symfony\dependency-injection\ContainerBuilder.php(455): Symfony\Component\DependencyInjection\ContainerBuilder->getDefinition('5') #1 C:\xampp7\htdocs\phpBB3\phpbb\di\service_collection.php(72): Symfony\Component\DependencyInjection\ContainerBuilder->get('5') #2 C:\xampp7\htdocs\phpBB3\phpbb\profilefields\manager.php(139): phpbb\di\service_collection->offsetGet('5') #3 C:\xampp7\htdocs\phpBB3\includes\ucp\ucp_register.php(659): phpbb\profilefields\manager->generate_profile_fields('register', 1) #4 C:\xampp7\htdocs\phpBB3\includes\functions_module.php(676): ucp_register->main('register', NULL) #5 C:\xampp7\htdocs\phpBB3\includes\functions_module.php(998): p_master->load_active(false) #6 C:\xampp7\htdocs\phpBB3\ucp.php(76): p_master->load('ucp', 'ucp_ in C:\xampp7\htdocs\phpBB3\vendor\symfony\dependency-injection\ContainerBuilder.php on line 809
I have been trying to run this one down though making little headway. Here is another opportunity for help. Please.
Currently I am working on getting the board email working and taking breaks from that to work on 1 & 2 above.
