Should we still apply this new patch, even though we don't experience the error pages as some have reported with update 3.0.13? Please advice?

You should be fine if you're
  1. not affected by "Trailing paths and PATH_INFO is not supported by phpBB 3.0"
    See https://tracker.phpbb.com/browse/PHPBB3-13549

    and
  2. not using the Fulltext Native Search Plugin
    See https://tracker.phpbb.com/browse/PHPBB3-12933
The third issue is only a cosmetic change.
See https://tracker.phpbb.com/browse/PHPBB3-13554

However, please keep in mind that by not updating to 3.0.13-PL1, your administration control panel will keep telling you that you're not using the latest version. This in turn might result in you missing further releases.

Cheers,
bantu

Ah, I see. Yes, I will have to update. I just tested the bug reported for the Fulltext Native Search and I am also experiencing this.

Plus it will be annoying to see that I am not up-to-date. :)

Why downloading the whole package again, if you already downloaded the "officially" release ?

You can download a zip-archive with only the 8 changed files from my website
[Removed - Marshalrusty (see comment below)]

or first look what I wrote (if you understand german)

No ! There's really nothing else changed as these 8 files.

Hi!

I realize that you're just trying to help, but please don't create unofficial packages. The reason everyone should download the whole package again is to ensure that they're getting exactly what everyone else is getting. If you made even a tiny error in the package you made, anyone who downloaded that package would have the same error. Then when they ask for support, we would have no idea what happened. If you want to distribute phpBB, it's best to use official packages (or even link to them directly).

Thanks

@Marshalrusty: You're a dull liar ! :evil:

Better look before telling wrong things ! :evil:

You want that everyone who already had downloaded the whole version has to download it all again. But there is no need to do that. I had exactly packed those 8 files into the zip-file that has been changed and there is nothing wrong with it.

A few hours ago I saw that here the zip-file has been downloaded more than a half dozen times and I surely know that it had been more, if you hadn't delete that file.

Why don't you give that offer that I made ?

I know it. Because you believe to know all better and have fun to let me look as someone whom none can trust.

You're really dull, guy.

You're not worth to do that job that they allowed you to do.

If I would do so, germans wouldn't have german language files for 3.0.13, that I offered to download since months ago.

It seems to me that you have no knowledge of programming - anyhow.

@regazer, keep in mind that there are people that add modifications to their phpBB version. Having them download your files may not work with people that have modifications, because if those modifications have changed those files, well, they may end up with even more errors down the road. This is why there are options as to what installation you need. Just do what they tell you. They've been doing it for a long time.

Read the installation tutorial. It's all there. You don't need to download the entire files, only to update a few when you select the correct setup for your forum--whether vanilla or heavily modded (like mine).

There is a automatic update that is quite simple and also updates the database version:
https://www.phpbb.com/files/release/php ... 13-PL1.zip

The other solution is to download the changed files archive, which contains just what you uploaded (except that it's for all older versions in one, but it also contains an archive with the important only stuff)
https://www.phpbb.com/files/release/php ... -files.zip

You're raising a valid point. The phpBB-3.0.13-PL1-files.zip file is a rather large file that contains zip files for each version. A user will only ever need one of those files. This is certainly something we should keep in mind for future releases.

Nevertheless, even if we verified that the packages you built are proper, correct and all that; it would still be possible for you to change them to be malicious (e.g. containing a backdoor) later on. As such, we can not recommend using any untrusted third party packages.

Your reaction is completely inappropriate.

Not to mention disrespectful, arrogant and downright rude.

Personally I would never trust a download from a site belonging to anyone who thinks comments like that are acceptable.
Never argue with idiots, they will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

About that, i am still running on 3.0 and the messages i am getting in my acp are telling me to update to 3.1.2, when it should tell me to upgrade to 3.0.13-PL1. After updating to 3.0.13-PL1 im in the green. Something is wrong here. Maybe you didnt add a message for upgrading to this version ?
