In my case, I installed PCP, CH MOD and other that heavily modified the database... and let's just say everything wasn't so smooth.
But you also have to build a script for ALL of the tables you would want transferred over...
It's really pretty in-depth if you get into it.


Lol! Ya, that danged CH mod made upgrading rather hard for us didn't it! :lol:

But we hacked our way through it and have our once phpBB2 CH(I was using a development version of CH myself) boards running phpBB3. :mrgreen:

yeah! :lol:

It was quite a task... and nightmare, there were a lot of problems trying to get the CH MOD over.
The PCP wasn't so bad... as a lot of those features are default for phpBB3, so we didn't lose anything there... well... not much anyways, at least not anything important.

I'm pretty impressed with phpbb 3.0 so far ...

I wish there was a better way to donate than purchasing a bear though! :P

actually purchasing the bear doesn't donate because they've said they're sold at cost.

Looks like half of the bugs just got squashed.

Now would be a better time to predict a Beta 3 / RC 1 release. (After this weekend).

Although, a lot of the bugs were really not bugs.. they might of just cleared out all the support and user errors.

I think this weekend the first RC gone be released. I hope the Final version of phpbb3 comes this month or the next month but i think it's just for the end of this year :(

I would not count on that although a similar bug squashing mania happend just before beta2. And even if there will be a release soon it could be beta3. We were at similar bug counts when beta 2 was released

Yes but you can never know, let us hope that it is now a RC so we (the webmasters) can start with converting our 2.1.x boards to phpbb olympus (just for testing how easy/difficult it is to convert and what the problems are)
