Confirmed it works, though I noticed something like the installer being slower than before.

I do not and I can't give you some data about that, just an impression. Can you confirm?
Slower than what?
I did install 3.2.0-b2 before of this fix, then I took the modified file from github and saved it into the 3.2.0-b2 download.
I created a new DB and a new folder.
I did the new installation procedure with the fixed file.
I noticed the process was slower than before (than the original package without this fix).

I do not know how to programatically compare the two tests, though.
It was an impression of mine but it was so evident the gap to me that I am reporting it here.

If you know how to compare the two you can give to me an hint and I will be more than glad to learn and report.

Thank you. :)

You can use a stopwatch, but i doubt that there would be any (noticable) time difference.

A stopwatch? :lol:
Are you telling me there is not a way (programatically speaking) to misure the performancies?

Thanks. :)

You may use microtime() in PHP, i think the method is called stopwatch, i could be wrong.

Ops, sorry but i truly translated the word "stopwatch", that's why my laugh. ;)

Ok, I will investigate on that.
No probs at all though, I am sure has been just my impression but worth reporting it, IMO.

Have a nice day. :)

Hi,
could someone please explain me like to a child what does that do in config.php?

Code: Select all

@define('PHPBB_ENVIRONMENT', 'production');
------------------------------------------------------

I am installing (installed) 3.1.8 and 3.2.0-b2 on a live webserver I got.

While installing a fresh 3.2.0-b2 I got stuck at 27%, after 10 minutes (true) I decided to refresh that page and I got a message that tells me phpBB has been already installed.
During that gap of time I noticed also a message saying it was skipping a part of the install procedure (forgot the exact message, though).

Linux/apache/
php 5.6.19
MySQL(i) 5.5.48-cll

Thanks. :)

Not sure if I can explain it simply but one new feature in 3.2 is the ability to have different environments. If you look in the cache folder straight after an install you will see two folders - install & production. The different environments allow phpBB to respond in different ways - for example if you have the default "production" environment set then whenever you change something in say a services file you will have to purge the cache in order for it to take effect, whereas if you have a "development" environment purging the cache is unnecessary.

How you actually create the configs for these different environments is way beyond my "pay grade" - I just copied the development config from github!

Today I had to install B2 again and the installer worked without timeouts.
One minor thing, using smtp as mailserver I'm not able to set up a different port at installtime. The field isn't in the form.
