2.0x to 2.2 conversion?

Post by hater »

Will there be an upgrade process that will assist us in moving from 2.0x to a 2.2 board. Even just something to upgrade the database as I presume the addition of subforums, password protection, and links being hardcoded rather than by modification will be handled differently, amongst many other things like user control panel, etc.

From a vanilla (no MODs) version, yes

Except for the Attachment MOD...I think I heard some phpBB Team person say that will be "upgradable".
Salute!!

I would think most MOD authors who still care will be doing upgrade scripts...

I don't really like the word who cares, maybe those that have the time.

out of interest if your board is modded with stuff like the shop or albums and you try and update to 2.2 will these features just be deleted/overlooked or will it crash? Or is it still yet to be known?

Mostlikely over looked mods that as add to the files or have it own table is ok, that is if they don't delete or replace the orginal phpBB2.2 table. Adding to the original table is ok,

Deleting a field or storing something important that should be in the orginal elsewhere, would affect you alot. As far as I know now mod does that.
