phpBB3 3.0.12 to 3.0.14 update

by OldCoder » Tue Dec 05, 2017 02:23


These forums started out as phpBB3 3.0.12. They were updated to 3.0.14, the final stable release of 3.0.X, on 2017-12-04.

To update phpBB3 3.0.12 to 3.0.14, I proceeded roughly as follows:

* Back-up forums directory tree.

* Back-up forums database.

* Download phpBB3 3.0.14 ZIP file.

* Unpack into a temporary directory.

* Remove config.php and the /files and /images directories from the temporary directory.

* Move remaining files and directories from the temporary directory into the actual forums directory tree, replacing old files and directories where they exist.

* cd into install folder and execute:

php database_upgrade.php >& upgrade.log

* This produced an error because the release number of the existing copy of phpBB3 turned out not to be stored properly in the database.

* To correct that issue, I executed these commands in MariaDB:

Code: Select all
delete from mtfprefix_config where config_name = 'version';
insert into mtfprefix_config (config_name,config_value)
values ('version', '3.0.12');

where 3.0.12 was used because it was the release number of the existing copy of phpBB3.

* Subsequent to the MariaDB command, the php command listed previously worked correctly.

* Delete the install folder.
