Busy uploading it to my test server.
one question though..
I have been using a slightly modified version of Prosilver that has been renamed.
what exactly changes when Prosilver is released with the new version??
I don't know if I could just copy over the tweaked files to a renamed copy of the latest prosilver,
or would I break it ??

After updating, I could no longer log in to my test board. "Incorrect Password"....
Had to use the reset password option

My localhost testbed (CentOS 8.2 with PHP 7.4) successfully (and smoothly) updated by phpBB 3.3.1 using the Full Package and following https://www.phpbb.com/support/docs/en/3 ... date_full/.

Sanity testing looks good and therefore I'll be updating my production boards later today.
My production boards have been smoothly and successfully as expect. Thanks team!

I went to your board and looked for an hour or so, but did not see the women without underwear.

Do you have change the php version?
Can that topic be made a sticky? Common problems while upgrading to 3.3.0 Otherwise, it's not visible to anyone when viewing the support forum - it's the first thing one would look for.

I had a related problem. My passwords didn't work after upgrading PHP to 7.4 because I was missing the PHP sodium module. CentOS and Fedora do not include the sodium module as a default. I asked for help because I didn't know this module was missing.

My support request (with solution) is here: Re: Updating PHP 7.3 to PHP 7.4 login fails with invalid password

I recommend revising the locked topic to add a new section:
Problem: Passwords don't work after upgrading to PHP 7.4+

Newer versions of PHP offer new password hashing algorithms which we make use of. If you upgrade to PHP 7.2, passwords will be hashed using Argon2i. If you upgrade to PHP 7.3+, they will be hashed with Argon2id. PHP implements the Argon2id algorithm in the sodium module.

Some operating systems do not distribute the sodium module as a default.

Solution: Install the PHP sodium module
I also recommend adding the sodium module as a PHP requirement.

Thank you for that link as that helped me update my test board which is now up to date. I was so worried about corrupting it when deleting all those files, but it was updated successfully. :D

In addition, thank you to the developers who worked on this update and for making phpBB updates possible.

I have successfully updated my production board from phpBB 3.3.1 to 3.3.2.

Noticed after the update, the American English language pack has not been updated for 3.3.2.

User Control Panel --> Board preferences --> Edit notification options contains 4 undefined variables:

NOTIFICATION_TYPE_FORUM
NOTIFICATION_TYPE_REPORT_PM
NOTIFICATION_TYPE_REPORT_PM_CLOSED
NOTIFICATION_TYPE_REPORT_CLOSED

Switching to the British English language pack (included with phpBB release) has the variables defined.

I'll patch my language files until the American English pack has been updated.

good work.

keep in mind that the instructions for updating/upgrading specifically say to switch the language to british english before
doing the update/upgrade.
also, just for info, the only difference between the british language pack and the american english pack is a couple of words
link colour instead of color and customise instead of customize.

I have never found it worth the trouble to keep up with the american pack.

As an American, I agree. I can read British English just fine, even if the spelling is a bit different.

Yes, but the idea is to make your board feel like "home". You can certainly understand the content, but it doesn't have a "local" feel. This will reduce the reader's impression of your board in a small way. You will always notice that the site is "different".

My non-US members can use the British English pack, which is the language they most likely learned.

point is that there only a couple of words that are spelled different between them and I bet few, if any, of your members would even notice.

to each his own of course.
