Try these two updaters, in order. Unzip the archive and upload the install folder contained within, then browse to it.

Try clearing out the files in the cache directory except index.html and .htaccess and trying again.

Also, nice Firefox tabs. We really appreciate it when users respect our privacy while asking for help ;)

The updater seems to be choking because it is doesn't want to let you update to 3.0.3 when 3.0.4 is available. I'll need to see if I can chase down the 3.0.2 -> 3.0.4 updater.

Edit:
Open install/install_update.php
Find

Code: Select all

$info = get_remote_file('www.phpbb.com', '/updatecheck', ((defined('PHPBB_QA')) ? '30x_qa.txt' : '30x.txt'), $errstr, $errno); 
Replace with

Code: Select all

$info = false; 
This should force it to run.
