did you mean before i go to Forum index page? 10 min after the "Updating message..." shown up :oops:

I also have been contacted my host - they say they can not help and i need to speak with phpBB support.
They can restor it thoug to preinstalled stage. but i realy want forum to be updated.

I also tried to run fix.php script (advised on viewtopic.php?f=466&t=2269196)
No Luck.

Same Error on forum index page

Please I need help!

Let it run for longer before giving up. I had a board take around 30 minutes before the continue option showed.

Hi Kevs! I am so glad you back to me!!! Must be very late at your end now??
i feel exosted. :lol: I should not realy do it my self. now i feel that i have done so mach mess. never have it back to normal. and people keep sending me e-mails - Thinking my site is down.

Now i asked hosting to restor forum to 3.0.11
Do you think if i try automatic update to 3.0.12 which i download as well.
and when go automatic to 3.1.

I like your advise. May be I should wait - but there is no any info about waiting and furver battons.

So that is the time at your end? (Sorry for spelling mistakes. i am russian)

It's 11am here.

The 3.1.1 files can update directly from 3.0.11.

Don't use automatic updaters. Just go for new files as explained before.

11 am? its not too bad then. For some reson i thought you stay somewhere in America and it must be late night then we have 2pm. I may have a chance to sort this all out? i am wating for host at the moment. Hopping to see the forum back on.

Is any opportunity to experiment with some "spare" forum folder and leave the main runing till full sucsess?
and after move all around?

You could look at Knowledge Base - Installing and Setting Up Your Own Web Server and then follow Knowledge Base - Transferring Your Board to a New Host or Domain to get your live board into a test environment on your local PC.

Try replacing your {board root}/phpbb/db/migrator.php before running database_update.php with the one below. It should speed up the migrator.

It really should be noted that this is an issue in 3.1.1.

Although I got a database update eventually using a different ISP sever I had the same issues of the update stopping all week.

Saw this post and tried the ISP which wouldn't update, recreated all the forums and changed the migrator file and it went straight through, could have done with this last weekend after numerous failures
