Post subject: Update to phpBB 2.0.23

I am using phpBB 2.0.22. Would it be helpfug upgrading? I understand there are some security fixes...
I have abot 50MODs wich of course I do not wish to lose. I could manually change codes, that is not a problem. But is is a file called update_to_latest wich I have to run in the browser and he goes by himself. If something goes wrong, I can put back the files with no changes, but what do I do with the changes update_to_latest makes? Is it risky? Does it worth takin' that risk?

Thanks!

The file update_to_latest.php makes any database changes required for the update. Often it is just a version number change. It can do no harm.
If you are familiar with installing mods then use the code changes package to do the update and no mods are lost.

I got stucked with something. It's about the changes to this two files:
templates/***/admin/styles_edit_body.tpl
templates/***/posting_body.tpl
For styles_edit_body.tpl I have to do change this:
Code:
      <td class="row2"><input class="post" type="text" size="25" maxlength="100" name="tr_color1_name" value="{TR_COLOR1_NAME}">
   </tr>

   <tr>
      <td class="row1">{L_TR_COLOR2}:</td>
      <td class="row2"><input class="post" type="text" size="6" maxlength="6" name="tr_color2" value="{TR_COLOR2}"></td>
      <td class="row2"><input class="post" type="text" size="25" maxlength="100" name="tr_color2_name" value="{TR_COLOR2_NAME}">

   <tr>
      <td class="row1">{L_SPAN_CLASS_3}:</td>
      <td class="row2"><input class="post" type="text" size="25" maxlength="25" name="span_class3" value="{SPAN_CLASS3}"></td>
      <td class="row2"><input class="post" type="text" size="25" maxlength="50" name="span_class3_name" value="{SPAN_CLASS3_NAME}">

O course, using other then subSilver templates, I do not have it like this. It appears the I have to change a lot of "maxlenght 100" to "maxlenght 50". I could probably try to make the changes manually, but it is really that important to be maxlenght 50 and not 100?

To the posting_body.tpl I have to change this:
Code:
               </select> &nbsp;{L_FONT_SIZE}:<select name="addbbcode20" onChange="bbfontstyle('[size=' + this.form.addbbcode20.options[this.form.addbbcode20.selectedIndex].value + ']', '[/size]');this.selectedIndex=0;" onMouseOver="helpline('f')">
                 <option value="0" class="genmed">{L_FONT_SIZE}</option>
                 <option value="7" class="genmed">{L_FONT_TINY}</option>
                 <option value="9" class="genmed">{L_FONT_SMALL}</option>
                 <option value="12" selected class="genmed">{L_FONT_NORMAL}</option>

To this:
Code:
               </select> &nbsp;{L_FONT_SIZE}:<select name="addbbcode20" selected onChange="bbfontstyle('[size=' + this.form.addbbcode20.options[this.form.addbbcode20.selectedIndex].value + ']', '[/size]');this.selectedIndex=0;" onMouseOver="helpline('f')">
                 <option value="0" class="genmed">{L_FONT_SIZE}</option>
                 <option value="7" class="genmed">{L_FONT_TINY}</option>
                 <option value="9" class="genmed">{L_FONT_SMALL}</option>
                 <option value="12" class="genmed">{L_FONT_NORMAL}</option>

Of course, I don't have it just like this. What do I do? The cnahges to template files are important?

Just looking at the first ones you posted - I compared them with Winmerge and the only changes are maxlength="100" to maxlength="50"

You could set that to whatever you want or just leave yours as it is.

On the second one the only change is two instances of the word "selected" being added.
If your template does not have a section that corresponds to that then just leave it. By corresponds I do not necessarily mean identical but "much like"

Thanks, Jim! icon_smile.gif I've skipped that with maxlenght, I only changed the part with "selected", in posting_body.tpl.
Tomorrow I will probably replace the files and run update_to_last and I hope all will work fine. I'm a bit scared right now. icon_redface.gif

The first rule re making any changes is to have a full backup of everything.
Before installing any mod make a backup of the files you are going to edit and make regular database backups (I do so daily)
That way if it goes pear shaped or even if you were to be hacked you can be back in business very quickly.
I have a full working copy of my board running on localhost with XAMPP. If there was a server problem and data lost or even if the whole thing was lost I could be back up and running within a very short time. I install all mods and test them on the local version first.
I have never know anyone to have problems running the update_to_latest.php file. In a lot of cases(but not all) it only updates the version number.

It seems that all worked well. I got this message at the end:
Code:
You should now visit the General Configuration settings page in the Administration Panel and check the General Configuration of the board. If you updated from versions prior to RC-3 you must update some entries. If you do not do this emails sent from the board will contain incorrect information. Don't forget to delete this file!

I don't know what is RC3, but I'm pretty sure I was running a stable release of phpBB 2.0.22.

Thanks for all your help! Now I am to 2.0.23 icon_cool.gif

RC3 is a very, very old version of phpBB2. RC stands for Release Candidate.

I finally see I need update from 2.0.22 to 2.0.23, but support ended just a few days ago!! I don't think I have MODS.
Could someone tell me which files to upload from
http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=7885&package_id=28882
(not sure if I need some or all of the codechanges vs. files vs. patch or phpBB-2.0.23.zip)

FYI, board is at http://www.crazy4carz.com/forumframe8.php
Thanks!

Code changes is a list of changes that you would have to apply manually or via EasyMOD. Files is a list of just the changed files; any file that did not change in the .22 to .23 update would not be included. And the last is a complete copy of .23 with all files included.

If you don't have any MODs at all, the files package would work. You need to overwrite any files with the file from that package, and then run the "update_to_latest.php" file (I think that's the correct name) to make any database changes.

If you have made any MODs at all, then the code changes option would be the way to go.

Thanks drathbun!
Awesome response time.
That was successful. Now we'll see if I get a little more confident about improving my board! icon_cool.gif

hi again , ok, first I think this post dosn't merit a new topic becasue it's related in somway to this topic , so I post it here, if otherwise tell me, ok, as I noticed always , there is a mod (only one file or a copy and pase post not a whole package )in the phpbb official site to upgrade from subversion to the last, like 2.16 => 2.17 , 2.16 => 2.18,......, 2.16 => 2.22 , but what I can't find anywhere is the 2.22 => 2.23 , so , if someone can do it here, it will be great for me and maybe for others, because I want to upgrade from 22 to 23 wihtout downloading the whole codechange file (I have very very very slow and stoneage connection). thnx
