Upgrading from 3.0.0 to 3.0.4

Post by chew »

I need to upgrade a board I am now responsible for from 3.0.0 to 3.0.4 but the auto install packages for phpBB say they only upgrade from 3.0.2 and I am unable to find any info on how to perform an upgrade from an earlier version. Can anyone advise on the best way to do this?

Nope only a custom page for a chat room but this should take me no more than a few mins to recreate! I believe all the templates are standard too.

This will remove the MOD but if it's easy to reapply I'd do it this way anyhow.

Get a download of the full version of phpBB3.0.4
Upload everything except config.php and the images and files folders.
Go to yoursite.com/forumfolder/install/database_update.php
Let it run
Delete the install folder
You are now up to date.
