Two data points to report using my localhost testing environment and following the steps in https://www.phpbb.com/support/docs/en/3 ... date_full/

On a CentOS 8 (Stream) server, with PHP 7. 4.23, the update went smoothly and no issues reported or seen so far during post-update sanity testing.

On a CentOS 7.9 server, with PHP 8.0.10, the update went smoothly and no issues reported or seen so far during post-update sanity testing.

Thanks team.

The update (manual method) went without problems, thanks team.
The change in the overall_header.html would also have to be made in the simple_header.html.
This Bug still exists!

Other than testing the update process and basic sanity testing is there anything else that the development team could suggest as a focus for testing with this update?

No, I don't think there is anything special on top of that which necessarily should be tested.
