Re: Updating phpBB3 Beta5 to RC1 Tutorial+Script

Hi. I just found this site after realizing phpbb.com had no guide for upgrading a beta 5 board to RC 1 or RC 2. I hope people registering and asking questions right out of the gate is kosher here. If not, flame me. I'm used to it.

Anyhow, I believe I followed all of your instructions in this guide (thank you, btw), but I get the following message when trying to log-in after all is done:

General Error
SQL ERROR [ mysql4 ]

Unknown column 'is_dynamic' in 'field list' [1054]

An sql error occurred while fetching this page. Please contact an administrator if this problem persists.


This is off the index page and I cannot reference to an is_dynamic field in any of the update scripts. Can anyone lead me in the right direction, please?

Thanks.

Edit: after a long find (bad text editor), I discovered this in root/install/schemas/mysql_40_schema.sql

# Table: 'phpbb_config'
CREATE TABLE phpbb_config (
config_name varchar(255) DEFAULT '' NOT NULL,
config_value text NOT NULL,
is_dynamic tinyint(1) UNSIGNED DEFAULT '0' NOT NULL,
PRIMARY KEY (config_name),
KEY is_dynamic (is_dynamic)
);


Looks like I could probably just alter the table to look like this? But why did it never get altered by the update script?

The update script has some weird behaviour. I discovered that lots of people are running hte update script, saying there are only a few minor errors, nothing to worry about, then to discover that the script changed next to nothing....

Running the script a few times will (most of the time) create the neccesary tables.....;)

Well, this time, the issue was user error. I had accidentally managed to point config.php to my old phpBB2 database. I ran the stock update script (in the install folder) using the wrong database. When I fixed that, everything works flawlessly. Thank you very much, and sorry for wasting space.

Well one problem I have : I can't manage user - what should I do? Every time I'll try to do that IE says:

Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage

Most likely causes:
You are not connected to the Internet.
The website is encountering problems.
There might be a typing error in the address.

What you can try:
Diagnose Connection Problems

More information

This problem can be caused by a variety of issues, including:

Internet connectivity has been lost.
The website is temporarily unavailable.
The Domain Name Server (DNS) is not reachable.
The Domain Name Server (DNS) does not have a listing for the website's domain.
If this is an HTTPS (secure) address, click Tools, click Internet Options, click Advanced, and check to be sure the SSL and TLS protocols are enabled under the security section.

For offline users

You can still view subscribed feeds and some recently viewed webpages.
To view subscribed feeds

Click the Favorites Center button , click Feeds, and then click the feed you want to view.

To view recently visited webpages (might not work on all pages)

Click Tools , and then click Work Offline.
Click the Favorites Center button , click History, and then click the page you want to view.

Hello everybody :wave:

I get an error while trying to update my database. It says when I direct my browser to the site: No language found!

Anybody got an idea how I can fix that? :shock: Thanks.
