Minimum Requirements
phpBB3 has a few requirements which must be met before you are able to install and use it.
  • A webserver or web hosting account running on any major Operating System with support for PHP
  • A SQL database system, one of:
    • MySQL 3.23 or above (MySQLi supported)
    • PostgreSQL 7.3+

    • Oracle

  • getimagesize() function need to be enabled
  • These optional presence of the following modules within PHP will provide access to additional features, but they are not required.
    • zlib Compression support
    • Remote FTP support
    • XML support
    • Imagemagick support
    • GD Support
The presence of each of these optional modules will be checked during the installation process.
The mod_rewrite Apache module will be necessary to use url rewriting. It is though possible to adapt the rewriterules for isap_rewrite on IIS servers (windows).

Security
Security issues found should be reported to the phpBB.com security tracker in the usual way.

Available packages
    If you experience problems with the automatic update (white screens, timeouts, etc.) we recommend using the "changed files only" method for updating.

    With this release, there are four packages available.
    • Full Package
      Contains entire phpBB SEO premod source English and French language files.
    • Changed Files Only
      Contains only those files changed from previous versions of the phpBB3 SEO Premod.
    • Automatic Update Package
      Update package for the automatic updater, containing the changes from previous release to this release.
    • Patch Files Package :
      Contains patch compatible patches from previous versions of phpBB3. Mainly intended for advanced users.
    Select whichever package is most suitable for you.

Translations Update :
  • Both French and English language pack are included by default in the auto update and changed file package.
  • In case you are not using the french language pack at all, you can safely ignore updates of the French language files. Leaving it on your ftp and let the updater update it is of course not a problem.
Please ensure you read the INSTALL and README documents in docs/ before proceeding with installation, updates or conversions!.

Be sure to take a look at the official phpBB announcement thread to find out more about the phpBB3.0.7 new features and bug fixes included in the phpBB SEO Premod.

Please note for update :
  • This update will not change any of your current URL settings, but it will add some new one,
  • You WILL have to update you .htaccess once done,
  • Once you will have updated, you will have to refresh your theme's cache as well as phpBB's cache (ACP => STYLE, Themes => Refresh).
  • GYM Sitemap & RSS
    • GYM update process is now included in the auto update package and will handle all the required code changes for the premod files, but you WILL have to run the gym_sitemaps/gym_install.php script in update mode after you updated phpBB. If you do not use GYM, it is still wize to keep the file up to date, if you have deleted them, just ignore the GYM file update.
    • IMPORTANT :
      GYM sitemaps and RSS is likely to be updated before the premod, it will be up to you to keep it up to date meanwhile, you can be notified about updates by subscribing to the release thread while logged in : GYM Sitemaps & RSS module 2.0.1

Note :
  • The SEO Premod includes a fix in includes/utf/utf_tools.php for a bug that does not affect all installations but can be quite annoying.
    This bug was reported, but was not fixed in phpBB 3.0.7, and surprisingly, will not be fixed, since it was turned to "Will not fix" by the phpBB Group.

Yes I know, packages are currently being rebuild.

Meanwhile, make sure you a) do not use phpBB feeds at all, or b) implement the following :
The fix for the issue is a single line change inside of feed.php, line 525 has changed from:
Code: Select all
    $forum_ids = array_keys($auth->acl_getf('f_read'));   

to:
Code: Select all
    $forum_ids = array_keys($auth->acl_getf('f_read', true));
