Got the bulletin from Dreamhost last night (thanks guys - you totally rock) about needing to upgrade because of security issues and what not. I decided instead of doing a clean in stall or using the changed-files option, I was going to use the Patchfiles install instead.
And then hilarity/frustration ensued.
Reading their install procedures was like stereo instructions...
So I did some guessing at how to install the page. (patch -cl -d baseballboards.net (the directory I am using) -p1 < phpbb-2.0.11.patch ) and the reply I get is simply a blank line on hyperterminal.
can someoen help me out here? PHPBB support hasn't said jack to me or someone else who is having the same type of problems on his hosting company.
