Re: Best way to upgrade from 3.0.8?

Update your phpBB first to 3.0.11. You can find the files here: https://www.phpbb.com/downloads/#codechanges
Then you could add the premod.

You could use WinMerge to compare your files with the package files. Don't forget to update the database as well.

Re: ACP missing

Usually it's fine to do a reinstall. Just make sure you have backups. I've messed up a lot of times but always managed to fix bugs by starting all over again. Same goes for the database.

Re: How do you get a more active forum?

You need access to the templates. Just open the template and edit the html and upload the files back to the server.

Re: R301 or canonical link?

If i'm not mistaken the Canonical works almost the same as a R301 but acts more like a recommendation. I think it's better to use a R301 but i'm no expert :)

Re: Redirect specific topics to other url

iwanttobelieve wrote:"When a topic is linked to content (to an other section of my website)" what kind of content is that and how would you link a topic to a content on our site?

I would do that by joining the topic query with a linking table. I will fill the linking table with my own cms.
