Downtime and Restore from Backup

Post by dwbrown »

Hi Gang,

Tried to update the board to the latest version of PHPbb over the last 24 hrs, which turned in to a world of pain.

I have restored from a backup made last week, but I may have lost a couple of newly registered members in the process.

I apologise, please just reapply with the same details and I'll make sure I activate you straight away.

Cheers - Dave.B

Ongoing issues with the nightmare that is phpbb, sorry. Please ping me again if you have disappeared since you joined, had to go back to the last known good backup again tonight. I am trying. PHPBB says it's 3.3.0 in ACL, try and run the update from 3.3.0 > 3.3.1 and it fails with an error reporting installed version is 3.2.8. Fubar, proper fubar.

Thx Dave for all the work.
I feared that the forum was gone forever, I'am happy the forum is back in the air!
