phpbb2 vs. phpbb3 installed base

Post by ilikepeach »

Out of curiosity, does anyone know the ratio between phpbb2 vs. phpbb3 installed base? I personally know many forums with phpbb2 and I was wondering if we have more phpbb2 than phpbb3?

Given that phpBB2 was out almost 6 years before phpBB3 was release it is fair to assume that there are more phpBB2 boards than phpBB3 ones on the Internet currently.

You can add inurl:index.php to try and make the query more accurate.

Now with phpBB 3.0.6 survey, the phpBB Group will be able to track installations, providing that the administrator obliges.

Track no, estimate sure. Although that's not the intention behind it.

Yes, but the ratio should still be close.
