finding database tables

Post by kullboys » Wed Dec 13, 2017 9:52 am

I spent some time trying to figure this out but no success.

If I want to know which update added a specific table to the database, how would I go about it?
I have looked in the update files with no luck.

If you tell us which table we might be able to help

It might help if you give us an idea of the problem you're having as well.

the update files
I'm curious which you mean by those.

For me I search all files in /phpbb/db/migration/data/ (and below) for the term 'add_tables' to get an idea on what was added when (you still need to look at filenames and paths to get more details, and even then dependencies might kick in or not). Example:
  • \phpbb\db\migration\data\v320\oauth_states.php tells me that 3.2.0 (see path) added _oauth_states (see line 32).
