[Tools] phpBB 2.0.5 to phpBB 2.0.6 Changes

Post by AbelaJohnB »

MOD Name: phpBB 2.0.5 to phpBB 2.0.6 Changes
Author: Acyd Burn
MOD Description: These are the Changes from phpBB 2.0.5 to phpBB 2.0.6 summed up into a little Mod. This might be very helpful if you want to update your Board and have installed a bunch of Mods. Then it's normally easier to apply the Code Changes than to install all Mods again. This MOD also appears to work withi the latest version of EasyMOD, for quicker updating.

MOD Version: 1.0.0

Yeah, it does rock!

I loaded it into EasyMOD and had the update done in less than 45 seconds!

And, I did so on a forum with over 45 MOD's installed ;) (must custom designed mods)

Thanks a TON Acyd Burn!

I have a little question here about the instructions for includes/usercp_register.php

Code: Select all

#
#-----[ FIND ]---------------------------------------------
# Line 652
				$emailer->send();
				$emailer->reset();
			}

#
#-----[ AFTER, ADD ]---------------------------------------------
# 
				$db->sql_freeresult($result);
			}
Are you sure this is right?
Shouldn't it be something like this?
I'm just guessing but it looks wrong to me with those closing brackets...

Code: Select all

#
#-----[ FIND ]---------------------------------------------
# Line 652
				$emailer->send();
				$emailer->reset();

#
#-----[ AFTER, ADD ]---------------------------------------------
# 
				$db->sql_freeresult($result);

No, everything is ok, if you follow the instructions to a tie.

Kudos on this one Acyd Burn, i too have a doubt, awhile back a vulnerability regarding viewtopic.php was made public and i am wondering if the following relates to it, the first change suggested for the file calls for adding a line around line 32, and i already have this in that place:

Code: Select all

$topic_id = $post_id = false;
Do you recall if this line comes from the suggested fix for the vulnerability and if so do you think it should be replaced with the new lines that assigns it a value of 0 or should both lines remain in there, i imagine the line would need to be replaced with the new one as having the variable set both as false and 0 would be somewhat redundant, any suggestions?

This is the said Security fix, the Changes are made from a diff (2.0.5 -> 2.0.6) and the $topic_id = $post_id = 0; line is included within CVS.

I know some people think they have problems by not using this line but entering false, but i was never able to reproduce this.

Very nice, thanks Acyd Burn. Now I just need to figure out the changes made from 2.0.4 -> 2.0.5 :roll:

From the Author notes in the mod:
## After you have finished this tutorial, you have to upload the update_to_206.php
## file provided in the standard phpBB 2.0.6 package to the install/ directory,
## execute it and then delete it from your webspace.

Oh, wow. Just great...should have looked for this BEFORE I upgraded, knowingly losing all MODs that I had installed...

Oh well, these things happen.

Excellent MOD, very good idea!

Man, I wish I knew this was here. I basically did the same thing myself by making my own similar mod, and applying it. Could have saved about an hour upgrading.
