Put the one you want to use regularly in the phpBB3 folder, put the other in "phpBB3_alt"

How does QI install know which version I want to have installed?

I have phpbb3.1 in the sources folder and 3.0 in the sources/phpBB3_alt, I want to install 3.0 how does that work? Just tried to test this and I got a 3.1 board, I'm new with using QI so a little bit of help would be nice... Thanks in advance ;)

I've seen this somewhere but cannot just find it.

From memory I believe that you swap the two around and put 3.0 in the sources folder and 3.1 in sources/phpBB3_alt

Edit : It says that three posts up - must get my eyes tested :roll:

Well,, this is a piece of the announcement message:
tumba25 wrote:The biggest change being that QI can now handle both phpBB 3.0 and 3.1 boards. You don't have to change any setting for that as QI figures it out.
That means that I should be able to use both, without changing maps or I'm misunderstanding it.

https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/offi ... ll/support is the correct place to get support for QI.

If you look down a bit and click on Misc settings you'll find a dropdown menu at Alternate environment. That menu shows the directories in sources/phpBB3_alt and you should find your 3.0 sources there.

I don't need support, I was just curious how this works and that is a part of a discussion. You are saying that we don't need to change any setting because QI figures it out by itself, that seems to be wrong ;)

No. You need to have a sources/phpBB3 directory. QI detects if that directory contains phpBB 3.0.x or 3.1.x. For that you don't have to change any settings. But I haven't implemented DWIM functionality in QI yet. So it don't know what you want to install and just assumes that you know what you have in sources/phpBB3 and installs that. 8-)
