I will need to update the forum software in the next few days

Post by VK3KYY » Sun Jan 19, 2020 12:14 am

I've noticed that there is a new version of the forum software, so I will need to update the forum in the next few days.

Unlike some other systems, PHPBB does not seem to have an easy way to update. I have to manually copy the new files (as a zip) to the server and replace the existing files.

So this is always a risk, and I'll need to backup the existing files and database first, which will take some time.
