I took the plunge and updated to .22 with no problems at all. Easymod worked beaut and I had documented my manual changes... now ready for 3.0 Gold.
Thanks to all who responded with encouragement. :razz:

for a vanilla board that is true - NO data loss.

BUT if you have mods which have modified the DB such as adding extra fields - they WILL be lost in the conversion.



I don't care about any of them...LOL gonna to try it....

It depends how long it takes to write them. :?

Some are already well into development but each time a new version of phpBB3 comes out they have to be checked and changed to make sure they work correctly with the new code.

I'm wondering why some genius hasn't just gone and developed their own upgrader for phpBB3.

The table prefix needs to be the one used by the software you are converting from.
» Specified table prefix was phpbb_
