Guess the installer wasn't tested on any larger forums?
The installer detected a timeout
The installer has detected a timeout, you may try to refresh the page, which may lead to data corruption. We suggest that you either increase your timeout settings or try to use the CLI.
Now keeping fingers crossed with cli for it to complete the DB migration fully.

Also the installer/updater does not check beforehand that it actually has all the necessary permissions to finish the db migration.

Anyways, enhancements in 3.2 look good and I was especially looking forward to seeing PHP 7.1 support :!:
Actually, it has been tested on larger boards. We even tested updating a local copy of www.phpbb.com to 3.2.0 using the AJAX installer beforehand.

I successfully updated a forum with a 3GB database. Your mileage may certainly vary with varying server configurations.

The instructions to increase your timeout settings, or to use CLI posted previously, are not simple, and frankly beyond many of us who use a forum like a car, we know how to drive,but don't know, and don't really want to know, what happen sunder the bonnet and so a warning on using "FTP - Automatic files update" might be in order. Or even a note on the installation page on how to revert back to doing an alternative method.

Also at the end of the successful process a simple note 'saying now delete or rename your install dir, and return to your board.' which was always on previous updates would help, otherwise some us were not sure if the upgrade had finished, or what to do next.

I must say the work done by the phpbb team is first class

I'm sure you guys are aware of http://php.net/manual/en/function.set-time-limit.php

Well, anyways. The CLI did do all the migrations overnight.

Maybe the problem lies in the documentation, where one cannot find any discalimers that if one is running a forum with database size of over, say 1 GB (or whatever), please update files with installer and then use phpbbcli to migrate the database.

I also wasn't happy that the updater requires PATH_INFO (app.php/upgrade or whatever the path was) where as the site otherwise won't use PATH_INFO. Had to temporarily update nginx config to allow this.

Also updated my PHP-FPM docker container to run PHP 7.1 and request times were basically cut in half. Yay :!:

It's highly recommend to properly declare PATH_INFO when using nginx. Take a look at the sample config file for this:

You need to open a topic in support not in discussion. (Jim was kind enough to move your other posts viewtopic.php?p=14602676#p14602676).

Ok ... I hope I'm here right for my (maybe stupid) question ...

Of course I'm very excited for 3.2, but 3.3 is in work.
So what is the best ?
Update my 3.1.8. to 3.2 or wait for 3.3 ?

I certainly would not go for the last option as you will probably have a long wait. There has certainly been no dates for 3.3 published but based on the time-frame of getting from 3.1 to 3.2 I would guess the best part of two years - possibly more.

My thanks to everyone on this project... you all are wonderful!

I have upgraded to 3.2... but I'm seeing some strangeness on Google Chrome for the Mac (v55.0.2883.95 64-bit). The new "popup" features (located under Quick links and the user area in the upper right) are not going away when I click on them (sometimes they make the other one appear once one goes away), and the preferences icon is repeating like crazy (see the enclosed picture.) Safari and Firefox for the Mac works great!, it's only Google Chrome (for the Mac at least) that is being weird.

But I like what I see, thanks again, and peace!

Marsmars2, that's because the CSS has been changed, so you need to do a hard refresh on your browser by using the Ctrl + F5 keys. In the future though, please post issues like these in the Support Forums. :)
