That was a fail.

Followed directions here:
https://www.phpbb.com/support/docs/en/3 ... /upgrade3/

Got through step 11. Step 12.1 resulted in HTTP 500. I tried a whole bunch of things. I played with the PHP version. Upgraded to 7.2. Played with file/folder permissions. Nothing worked. Tried a DreamHost chat session. They tried some stuff and that didn't help. Next step is to submit a ticket and get someone to deep dive it for me.

The thing is, step 12.1 will actually upgrade the DB so it is theoretically the point of no return. Well, I mean, I could restore a DB backup and stuff...

Anyway, they reverted me to PHP 5.6 for now. The thing is, this might actually work on 7.2. The whole point is I thought it was not compatible. So maybe I will actually push it back to 7.2 and just upgrade the forum at another time. Or maybe I'll try again on 5.6 and see what a DreamHost ticket can do for me.

I tried again this time doing no CHMOD stuff. Worked.

We are now on 3.2.8. Awesome.

Single most awesome feature I found within 10 seconds: attachment uploader. You can drag and drop, or upload multiple files from the file dialog. OMG.

Now I need to switch to php 7.2 I guess.

And we're on 7.2 with fastCGI, whatever that is.

Next awesome feature: dynamic scaling finally works great on phone browsers. I don't know if this is technically considered responsive design but this is sweet.

It should be even snappier now. I haven't tried attachments yet...

Out of date again.

It was actually out of date before 3.3...

Also need to install this unless 3.3 happens to come with something that does this.
