My first attempt resulted in an Administration Control Panel warning that the update was incomplete. I then restored the version 3.8.2 source files, database, and repeated the update. The database update repeated the warnings, but the Administration Control Panel reports a successful update.

I am holding my production update to 3.2.9. until these warnings are debugged (or understand why they appear). How can these warnings be debugged?

PHP version: 7.2.27

Are you sure you're not runnign PHP 7.3?

Code: Select all

php --version
Because that warning is only thrown since PHP 7.3, as per the official documentation:

https://www.php.net/manual/en/control-s ... ntinue.php
7.3.0: continue within a switch that is attempting to act like a break statement for the switch will trigger an E_WARNING.
If you have multiple PHP versions installed, the executable php might be a symlink to the latest version.

I don't know which OS your test server is running on, but in mine (Arch Linux) the executable for PHP 7.2 is php72
Some of my phpBB extensions:

Thank you! That is exactly what I'm doing. Since I'm not running PHP 7.3, I never thought to look in that direction.

My localhost test environment is Fedora Linux. PHP 7.3 is the default install, so I have installed PHP 7.2 as php72. The versions do indeed report as you say.

Code: Select all

php --version
PHP 7.3.14 (cli) (built: Jan 21 2020 09:59:50) ( NTS )

php72 --version
PHP 7.2.27 (cli) (built: Jan 22 2020 07:58:15) ( NTS )
My production server php --version reports PHP 7.2.26, so it should be OK. However, I need to confirm this on my localhost test server.

I'll see if I can modify the symlinks to test this correctly (phpBB will see PHP 7.2 version reported).

You can run the CLI update on your test server using

Code: Select all

php72 bin/phpbbcli.php --safe-mode db:migrate

I restored my database and implemented your suggested php72 command. That fixed the warnings. Thank you!
