Made a test board for 3.2. I still have PHP Version 5.4.45.

Clean install, no hiccups. Set with Flatboots 3.2, Set with new BBCore 3.2.3. Installed full marketplace ext.

Noticed in admin log..

"Sitesplat BBCore did not install correctly
Could NOT update the following file(s)
» /viewforum.php"

after installing...

" Extension enabled
» sitesplat/classifiedsads"

I really need you to update to min PHP 5.6.21 :P
Having said this, disable the ads package and delete data, set the file permission for the viewforum.php to 777 then enable the ads package again.

I feel awkward asking ISP to go 5.6.21, when hes already looking at 7 :-D but i know what your saying :)

Good news on your advise on the above...

"Sitesplat BBCore installed succesfully"

But then i notice youve upped the BBCore version again :-D :-D :-D

You shouldn't feel bad. They are there for that reason, providing you a service which you are paying most likely pretty penny for.
The new BBcore 3.2.4 is for phpBB 3.2 only. (finally core edits free)

Just browsing phpbb as im off poorly, and found this about updates...note the comments made by Fogbow_foggy and Lumpy Burgertushie ... &t=2400126

...the thing i seem to gather at the moment is not to use "Automatic File Update" and to do a "Download the full package of 3.2.x"

Thought this might help the likes of us that are quite modified in some way ;)

it will be harder to get your 3.1 board back working than it is to complete the 3.2 upgrade.

if you understand how to use ftp then try this:
Upgrading from phpbb 3.1.x/3.2.x or updating to newest phpbb 3.2.x
Backup up your board's files and database
  • Go to the admin panel of your current board and purge the cache.
  • Download the full package of 3.2. click here 3.2.x Full Package
  • Unzip it to your computer, now remove the file named config.php
  • Upload all the rest of the files and folders into your forum's directory (Note: you don't want to overwrite your original config.php file)
  • Browse to then click the update tab. Click update.
  • Delete the folder named /install/


The bit where you say "FULL PACKAGE". If this is an update from a previous version, then surely on update package is required, especially if its available as a download ? For example Download phpBB 3.1.10 to 3.2.0 Update Package. Or do you REALLY mean FULL PACKAGE, and if thats the case why is the update package available in the first place ?

Yes, he means full package.

So FULL Package installs peeps :D

Full package was always the best option. But not for MODDED versions.
Nowadays with extensions I thought that we could change all the core files without fear. But there are many extensions that do core edit files. So, if thats the case, how can we put the Full Package? Should we need to deactivate first all extensions, put the full package and then re-enable all extensions?

So guys I'm currently on php5.4 and I'm getting upped right to php7 late tonight. Will I need to prep for anything for the big jump. I'm worried I won't be able to access the ACP to then set up 3.2...

I always kept a full changelog with find/replace instructions for phpBB. Updating was easy for me! I would just download the full phpBB package and follow my changelog to apply my code changes and that was it.

I still have my changelog, I now use an extension that makes the core changes for me.

That's great. But, on my 3.0, since I have 154 MODs, and many of them I needed to fix their code and make all compatible with each other. It was quite a task and a lot of edited files. BUT its all working perfectly :p (Kinda heavy, but its working lol)
But in that time I needed to do the update package, because making all edits again even if I had a changelog to do it manual, it would be days to do the changes x'D
But an extension that makes the changes for me, that would be perfect :-D
