"Server Maintenance" error after update

Post by krazygyal »

Hi,

I have just updated my recently created forum from phpBB 3.2.8 to phpBB 3.3.3.

I changed the permissions of the folders as indicated on this page: https://www.phpbb.com/support/documents ... pdate_auto

Yet, every time I visit http://backyard.jamworld876.net including http://backyard.jamworld876.net/install, I get the following error:

"Server Maintenance

Dear Visitor. This site is temporarily unavailable due to a system problem or planned maintenance. Please bear with us."

My server isn't under maintenance, the main site www.jamworld876.net is available at the moment.

Can anyone, please, help me fix this?

Code: Select all

You are running an unsupported PHP version. Please upgrade to PHP 7.1.3 or higher before trying to install or update to phpBB 3.3

I am getting this error:
Warning: Unexpected character in input: '\' (ASCII=92) state=1 in /var/sites/b/backyard.jamworld876.net/public_html/index.php on line 71
Which would seem to indicate you are running a very old version of PHP -- too old to even run phpBB 3.1, let alone 3.3

I have updated to php 7.2 but it was still showing the error. It's probably taking some time to process on the server.

You server is currently running PHP/5.2.17!?

Also:I suggest you use the full package method and not the auto update.
Brexit and Trump are old news and currently I have no inspiration for a new signature.
Ow, wait: 3.3 has been released.

I fixed it. I needed to add the following line in the htaccess file:

Code: Select all

AddType x-httpd-php73 .php

I didn't use auto update
