Re: [Discuss] phpBB 3.1.2 Release - Please Update

Post by Willy Witsel »

Thank you HIFIkabin for your instructions on the first Xmas Day!!

I will set prosilver as default style, save the old forum software, delete all files in the old software EXCEPT the files you mentioned

Then install new software and start update proces via database_update.php

Is there a reason why you have to delete some parts of the old software, normally you only copied the update to the server and executed update.php

I have read the whole thread and understand that styles are not compatible from 3.0 --> 3.1 so that is maybe the reason for your prosilver suggestion?
Regards,

3.1 is not a version update. It's practically a whole new version with little backwards compatibility with 3.0. So basically the 3.0 files wouldn't be compatible with 3.1.

I guess that I have to install in 3.1.2 a MOD to make all links on the forum rel=nofollow or is this function now available in the control pannel?

Set prosilver as the default style on your existing forum

Delete all files EXCEPT for the following:
The config.php file
The images/ directory
The files/ directory
The store/ directory
Upload the contents of the 3.1.x Full Package into your forum's directory. Make sure the root level .htaccess file is included in the upload.
Browse to install/database_update.php
Delete the install/ directory

Make a backup copy of all your existing files and database first, just incase it goes wrong

Can't update, I just get this error
Warning: require(./../phpbb/class_loader.php) [function.require]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/dazbobaby/public_html/install/index.php on line 42

Warning: require(./../phpbb/class_loader.php) [function.require]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/dazbobaby/public_html/install/index.php on line 42

Fatal error: require() [function.require]: Failed opening required './../phpbb/class_loader.php' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/dazbobaby/public_html/install/index.php on line 42
But I don't have a /phpbb/ in my path, it's installed in the root folder.

you can upGRADE but you can't update.

there is a difference.

3.1 is a whole new branch of phpbb3 so it is an upGRADE.

the instructions on how to do it are here, read the documentation etc. all of which is available from the menu at the top of the page here.

luck,
robert

Just realized this is the 3.1.2 release discussion topic. 3.1.3 is already out so if you want to continue this discussion you're welcome to do so here.

Locking in favor of the 3.1.3 release discussion.
