I am having some issues finding information about phpBB working with PHP 8.0? Have the latest version 3.3.2 been tested with PHP 8.0?
phpBB 3.3.2 Release: 06. Nov. 2020
PHP 8.0 Release: 26. Nov. 2020

So, it can work, but does not have to work. Try it out.

Or just stay at PHP 7.4 :)

I trust then that you have reported all the problems that you have encountered in the Bug Tracker so that they can be addressed,

@david63
Not yet. That means I have to reenable php8, get all the errormessages (7-8 lines, including for the 4 or 5 extensions) before going back and delete cache and lock files.
I can of course do that as I tested it on a "dummy" forum I have and not my live one.

Edit:
Umm - probably a stupid question..
So, I've (temporarily) "destroyed" my test forum by upgrading to php 8.0 and got 9 lines of error message.
In the Jira/Tracker in area 51, should I just copy/paste all the error messages or provide a link to my "destroyed" board?
I really do not want to leave my board broken as I use it for testing out extensions and things before implementing it on my live board.

The error messages would be good start. Add your server environment and the URL (without domain) and your phpBB version, should be fine for the start. :)

If I were you I would stay at PHP 7.4 as Crizzo said and I know phpBB 3.3.2 is working with PHP 7.4 as I use it myself without having any issues.

I'm curious why are you are still using Automatic update when https://www.phpbb.com/support/docs/en/3 ... ide/minor/ has this third on the list, for the case

Automatic update is a major source of problems in these support forums, so count yourself on the luckier side.

Have you made modifications to core phpBB files? If so, why?

A little blunt, don't you think?
Minor Updates Within 3.3.x

phpBB aims to be backwards compatible within minor releases, but if you are using extensions, language packs, or custom styles, you should check them for updates prior to updating phpBB.

There are several update paths available depending on the types of edits you have made to your board:

Section 2.5.1, “Full Package”

If you have made no modifications to core files, this is the easiest approach.
Update instructions are here.

not just blunt but quite rude as well. I am certainly no prude about language but this is a family site.
Please refrain from such language in the future.
( by the way, I agree with you about the auto update )


thanks,
robert

Sorry but I find it annoying to see so many people having problems after an automatic update that I tell myself that they are not necessarily all at fault.
