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…
A number of patch files are provided to allow you to upgrade from previous stable releases. Select the correct patch, e.g. if your current version is 2.0.10 you need the phpBB-2.0.10_to_2.0.11.patch. Place the correct patch in the parent directory containing the phpBB 2 core files (i.e. index.php, viewforum.php, etc.). With this done you should run the following command: patch -cl -d [PHPBB DIRECTORY] -p1 < [PATCH NAME] (where PHPBB DIRECTORY is the directory name your phpBB Installation resides in, for example phpBB2, and where PATCH NAME is the relevant filename of the selected patch file). This should complete quickly, hopefully without any HUNK FAILED comments.[/quote]
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.
