I'm trying to upgrade my 2.0.21 board to 3.0.2. I've done a clean install of phpBB3 with a new database etc and everything works fine.
However when I ran the Install Convertor I got an 'Internal Server Error' - The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.
I contacted my hosting provider (GoDaddy) and they replied:
'An internal server error is a 500 error which is most commonly related to some sort of scripting issue. When the script attempts to execute but is not written correctly or is missing some syntax it will throw this type of error.'
In the conversion guide:
http://www.phpbb.com/support/documents. ... =3#convert
it says "Note that the conversion requires CREATE and DROP privileges for the phpBB3's database user account."
Can anyone advise how I check the rights for the database user acount?
I'd also appreciate any suggestions on what else to try before I go to an offline solution.
My board is not that big - about 4000 posts and 500 users.
Thanks in advance
