This is not ment to ask for support or anything like that, I just haven't been able to upgrade, and was wondering if it was my problem, or if others have had simlar problems :)

No support and no such thing as phpBB 2.2 yet, so you are pretty much out of luck.....

There is not way to upgrade at the present time without manually altering all the tables and data by hand.

Come release there will be a nice shiny upgrade script which does it all for you.

Thanks for your answer!

Not to be a pest, but do you know of any tutorials on doing that?

No. As has been stated before, if you can't figure out how to do it yourself, you'll need to wait for a more stable release.

No support at all for cvs.
Need good web hosting? I recommend Hostrocket.

It's not smart to upgrade wait till the phpBB 2.2 is released, that is a much better idea then go and edit it manually.

There's no tutorials however it's relatively easy. Wait for a beta and there will be a script for you to manage.

Relatively easy? Hmm :) Quite a bit has changed in the database structure, BBcode, formatting, permissions, etc, etc. Writing a converter isn't something that you do in a few hours, especially if you're not extremely up to speed with how phpBB 2.2 handles things...
