3.0.x to 3.0.4 upgrade/clean install

Post by pmbinky »

First off I apologize for having to ask this since I'm the one that has created a major mess.

I ran the automatic upgrade from my admin panel and wound up getting the "blank" page after I was done. In trying to figure out how to remedy this I got everything all jacked up - old files in with new - to the point that I don't even want to TRY to untangle it.

Since most all of the user information should be retained in the database on my server, is there a way to do a fresh install while leaving the database and tables alone? The upgrade went through the tables already so I'm guessing they are fine.

I really appreciate your help in this as well as the fact that you're allowing your forum to be open to these idiotic questions while the php site is down.

The install documentation that comes with phpBB tells you how to do this.
Have a look at: docs/INSTALL.html#update_full
