Q: How do I update the phpBB version (for example between phpBB 3.1.6 to 3.1.7 etc)?
A: Step by step as follows: Method #1 Update your installation with the Automatic Update Package

Pre-Update- Disable the BBcore and the premium extensions as described above then proceed with the following:

1- Go to the phpBB.com downloads page and download the "Automatic Update Package" archive.
2- Unpack the archive.
3- Upload the complete uncompressed "install" and "vendor" folders to your phpBB root directory (where your config.php file is).
4- Once uploaded your board will be offline for normal users due to the install directory you uploaded now present.
5- Now start the update process by pointing your browser to the install folder. for example: http://www.site.com/install/database_update.php
You will then be guided through the update process and be notified once the update is complete.
6- if successful delete the "install" folder
