Barbie wrote: Mon Dec 18, 2023 12:11 pm I did several of them. Best way for me was to create a new installation with the same PHP, PHPBB and database versions (maybe in a VM), transfer the custom files, backup the database at the old host and import it at the new host.
Then update all related software, if needed in multiple small version steps.
Thanks Barbie. I am trying to update the PHPBB3 version offline and then uploading the refreshed site to my server space.
PHPBB3 forum has a lot of support suggestions which have so far, not solved my problem.
https://www.phpbb.com/support/docs/en/3 ... /upgrade3/

These are the steps I am attempting with no success:
I have tried on Ubuntu Linux (absolute pain in my ass!) and Win11:
Installing and configuring XAMPP can't ever run anything under the proposed site without massive errors.
/Install, /STK, /phpMyAdmin.
I have several database backups and the entire directory structure and the original host site has been shut down.

Importing the DB sometimes succeeds but I am not able to see anything on the site after replacing to proper files.
The best I can ever get is a directory list of files when accessing the site's root.
I am learning that different versions of PHP and PHPBB3 are not all compatible.
This has wasted well over 6 hours of my time and I will figure it out eventually.

https://www.oldunreal.com/phpBB3/index.php is being assaulted by spambots!   
Auto merged new post submitted 16 hours 30 minutes later
https://www.unrealsp.org/forums/ is down, sorta.

Usually the forum presents fine, but clicking any menu or search kicks up an error page "Bad gateway Error code 502".

Sometimes the forum won't load at all.
