I've searched for one but found nothing, I know there used to be one but can't find it, so if anyone knows of one can you let me know?
Hey guys, I've ran into a problem... I'm still new at this, I installed phpbb3 originally on my site, then I found the fm versions, so I purged the original phpbb3 installed and I installed the original version FullyModdedphpBB2-90409 (phpbb2) with the links given above, that board installed perfectly and worked fine, but I created a new table because it told me the table (phpbb_) already existed (I just learned yesterday how to delete tables a bit too late), i changed it to phpbb2_, then I uploaded the FullyModdedphpBB2-to-phpBB3.0.4 upgrade, changed the table to phpbb3 during the install because I thought it would interfere with the phpbb2 install (I think this might be where I went wrong) and it installed fine, but none of the mods were anywhere to be found. Can anyone help me figure out what I did wrong with the upgrade?
Ok, so now I'm really confused, lol. Thanks phreak for the reply btw... if that's the case, what's the deal with the FullyModdedphpBB2-to-phpBB3.0.4 files and no mods inside the zip? It's just the basic install files, nothing else. How does this fit into the picture?You CAN'T upgrade without removing the PhPBB2 Mods. It's impossible. The phpbb3 version would have to be using different MODS with different SQL names, the prefix doesn't make any difference at all, except that it needs to be a different one then the current PhPBB2 install.
That's because back then, you didn't know if what you were getting was say an older version of phpbb2 moddded up or a newer version which was patched for all the latest security issues. Plus there is, and STILL is, the issue of the 3rd party MOD you install CREATING a vulnerability.I would assume the mods are inside the "executable". Funny this topic springing up, only about 2 years ago this kind of install was warranted as bad. Meaning that the software was bound to have major flaws that would be a hacker's paradise. I guess that's not the case anymore.
