How do i know what version of phpBB3 i'm using.

Post by Liquidgel »

I've look in my forums and under php information it says Version 5.1.6 but when i browse the forums people are talking about php gold RC5 6 7 or stuff like that. So i'm wondering what is the most up to date version of the forums and where do i check to see which one i have. Also which one is the best to use, and what are the differences between them

PS: i know this is a noob question so i appreciate any responses.

You're mixing up two different things.

php is what the phpBB forums needs to run. That has it's own version number. usually 3.something, 4.something or 5.something.

phpBB is the software that makes the forum what it is. That is currently at 3.0.0 for version 3. There were development versions called RC1, RC2 etc up to RC8.

You can find out your forum version number by looking in the admin panel.

The old version 2 of phpBB was 2.0.1, 2.0.2 etc up to 2.0.22.

If you're starting a new site I'd got for phpBB3 (3.0.0).

Yup, you have the latest version, the one you're supposed to have.

RC were only release candidates, and what you have is the final product. :)
