database_update.php never completes

Post by cecilporter » Tue Feb 10, 2009 9:01 pm

I've tried many times to upgrade my 3.0.1 board to the latest, greatest version.. but whenever I attempt to run database_update.php, it results in a blank page. even if i delete that /install directory, any attempt to load the board results in a blank page. I've tried patching, I've tried uploading a fresh copy of 3.0.4, keeping only the config.. nothing I try makes any difference.. I get the same results during the db upgrade.

Your board's URL: http://mangydog.com/forum/
Version of phpBB3: 3.0.1
Was this a fresh install or a(n) update/upgrade/conversion (please be specific)? was upgraded from phpbb2
If update, what package(s) did you use? phpbb3's provided tools
Did you use an automated wizard provided by your host to install phpBB? no
MODs you have installed: wp_united
When the problem started: when i tried to upgrade to 3.0.2
Your level of expertise (be honest): i'm nerdy. I can php it up pretty well.

Additionally, you may wish to provide the following (where applicable)
Template(s) used: lightly modified prosilver
Language(s) used: english
Version of PHP used: 5.2.4
Database and version used: MySQL 5.0.24a
Test account*: will pm it, if necessary

please help!

thanks.

bump.

I've been thinking about altering database_update.php to dump everything it's trying to do to the screen. Has anybody already done this, so I don't reinvent the wheel?
