Re: Which version of forum newbb is good to installing? 3.08 or 4.0 or 4.33

I read it should be possible to upgrade from a old CBB/NewBB version , so it should be possible to import database ...

Yes, just copy the files form the version 4.3 over, and update the module.

Normally, what I do, after the update, I rename the old folder to something else (e.g. /newbb_3.08 or /newbb_old), and copy again the files from 4.3 to a new /newbb directory. This way I don't avoid clutter with some outdated files.

Re: Which version of forum newbb is good to installing? 3.08 or 4.0 or 4.33

Hello mamba,

thanks for your answer.

Really I did the opposite ... I installed NewBB 4.3 ( irmtfan way ) and I import CBB 3.08 Db.

No errors durning import and the system seems running well, but ...

I noted this pair of problems :

1) Block "last replied topics" is ok in administration page, but is not visible in the public website.
2) When I click on "Go to post" icon ( the doubled arrow ) I obtain a blank page ( I mean the content , not the whole web page, like in previuos point ).

Any suggestions ?

Pino

Hum ... strange ...

after a pair of unsuccessfully try , I decidet to do "tabula rasa" and restart.

A website with a fresh xoops 2.5.6 release and a second one with 2.5.7.1 .... once installed everything ( core and modules only in english under a friend suggestion ) I imported the whole old DB with the 3.08 version of forum DB.

In both cases all runs perfectly. Also modules just not "modern" ....

Could be this the secret? Some languages problems ?
