Unable to update to 3.0.11 - Fatal install index.php [ 320 ]

Post by keysearch »

Hi
I've logged on to my admin board then click check update, then i cilcked on more: These are the information that I've received ...
Release announcement
Please read the release announcement for the latest version before you continue your update process, it may contain useful information. It also contains full download links as well as the change log.

How to update your installation with the Automatic Update Package
The recommended way of updating your installation listed here is only valid for the automatic update package. You are also able to update your installation using the methods listed within the INSTALL.html document. The steps for updating phpBB3 automatically are:

•Go to the phpBB.com downloads page and download the "Automatic Update Package" archive.
•Unpack the archive.
•Upload the complete uncompressed install folder to your phpBB root directory (where your config.php file is).

Once uploaded your board will be offline for normal users due to the install directory you uploaded now present.
Now start the update process by pointing your browser to the install folder.
You will then be guided through the update process. You will be notified once the update is complete.
I've followed the instructions to the letter, but this is the message that I'm getting
Fatal installation error
Fatal installation error

index.php [ 320 ]

Module "" not accessible.
any help?

It looks like you've overwritten your config.php file.

That means you didn't get the auto update package.

If you didn't keep a backup of the config.php file, follow this

I've restore my entire board and restarted the automatic update procedure from scratch, I've had a backup for my entire forum with my config.php file included, after restoring my site this is the url for the updated that I've used https://www.phpbb.com/downloads/ (Please let me know if this is the wrong one?)
after downloaded and extracted it there were two folders {docs & install} so I've only uploaded the install folder to my root directory where my config.php is located. Then I've clicked on "Now start the update process by pointing your browser to the install folder" I'm still getting the fatal error

I do not have all the details of my database hence I'm unable to do a manual update, right now automatic update is my only option

Which SEO MOD have you got?
If it's the one from phpbb-seo.com I'm not sure our update works with their files.

Also, what happens if you go to the admin panel > system tab and follow the update directions from there?

That exactly what I've done and I'm gonna show you the url for the package that I've downloaded https://www.phpbb.com/downloads/
I've selected phpbb 3.0.11-RC1. (is that the right thing to do?)

Next thing, do i NEED to undo the SEO MOd before the automatic update?

No.
It says
you must first select your current phpbb version.

So you need to pick the 3.0.10 download.

You shouldn't but I was asking which SEO MOD it was as you might have to get support from another site.

Ok I have selected the correct current version and uploaded the install folder, nothing had changed! Regarding the SEO Mod, I've downloaded it from phpbb.com but I don't remember winch version exactly.
Is there something else that I should be doing in other to update my board successfully?

The install folder isn't currently on the server because your board is still online.

And
Open the cache folder on the server and delete everything except index.htm and .htaccess (if you can see it).

What does this mean? You have your config.php file, don't you? And there is no need to directly access the database anyway.
