Need assistance with upgrade

Post by sungazer » Tue Sep 27, 2016 12:22 am

Good evening :)

The company I work for uses phpBB and we need reliable assistance in upgrading the version and template we use. Can someone please provide me the name of someone reputable and responsible for doing something this important?

Thank you.

Hi, welcome to phpBB.com! :)

We have quite a bit of documentation available on this matter so you might want to have a go yourselves first. Feel free of course to ask any questions you might have here on the support forums.

We do however, per our board-wide rules, not allow solicitation of people for your own personal projects here on phpBB.com. If you still want to hire someone to do the work for you, we usually recommend for you to look at the signatures of team or community members. Many of them have a line saying you can contact them via PM for (paid) private work. You're allowed to contact these people if they have stated so.

In some cases like this (new user with just 1 post) the OP can't PM anyone as per the NRU settings here, AFAIK.
Please PM me only to request paid works. Thx.

Team members can always be PMed, regardless of the amount of posts. For sending PMs to regular community members, they would have to wait until they accumulated 5 posts. :)

Thank you for responding instead of just denying the post :) We've been solicited many times via email for people saying "We'll fix your upgrade for you" but they made me feel uneasy and I didn't want to recommend them as a real option.

I will do some reading and see if it's something anyone here is capable of (no one here is technical) otherwise I'll check the signatures of members to see if anyone can help us :)

Thank you for this link. This is exactly what I was afraid of.

. By experience I know of a lot of users in this years that simply gave up, instead of keep on posting so to reach such a "level".
