Thanks for the update Noobie. But I have a question, isn't it possible for 2.0.18 to have security holes?

I'm an admin for a forums system that's running phpBB2.0.0.6...is there a way to upgrade to the existing version without having to upgrade to each sub-version individually?
n0obie4life
I'm afraid no..

You'll either have to reinstall phpBB or just upgrade it slowly.

Yes there is.

Go to phpbb download and download the changed files pack. (Note: Its a bloody 4.6 MB download)
http://www.phpbb.com/downloads.php

There are all the changed files for every version. So if ur is 2.0.6 then just open the folder and upload those files in addition to those contrib files & stuff to update ur database.

@n0ob how could u forget this Rolling Eyes , u helped me upgrade my forum this way it self
n0obie4life
I don't recommend that way because he's forum might be modded.

And modded forums can't use that way to update.

Oh, noobie, not every forum is modded. Wink

And you forgot the 'h' in your signature. fri$ --> frih$. d'oh!
n0obie4life
The signature isn't my fault Razz.

Bogger made it.

I never said every forum was modded. BTW, did you have fun patching it?

It is possible to update a forum, which contains lots of installed mods.

But you have to do it by yourself, so don't let a program or somethings else do it for you. Or overwrite the files. Only, if you don't have any mods installed, than you can update it automatic (or overwrite the old files, I mean). And maybe the update works with a few installed mods, but I don't want to take a risk. If the files which are overwritten by the update, and contained some mod parts, than it's possible the mod doesn't work anymore. Gone. Than you have to reinstall the mod.

I think I do have a problem. Neutral I've installed many mods, such as the Categories Hierarchy mod. And this mod changes many files. Even some files are deleted, and some files are totally renovated. The update will take much time, I think (It already takes much time, but for me I think more Sad ). But I will try to update my board. Very Happy

Even if you have a non-modded forum, it's still better to update it yourself IMO.

Thanks for the update

Damn, that's one long update.

Now I have something to do next time I'm really bored...

This is exactly why people use SMF Very Happy

Installation of an update (and any MOD, in fact) is a one-click operation. No need to worry about manually editing files Very Happy

This is also why holes in phpBB are exploited. Some people are too lazy to update their forums, so when visitors (hackers) realize that you're running an older version, they'll try and exploit it.

This version has only bugfixes that people reported in their bugtracker Wink

Well, that may not be correct, they just released three vulnerabilities that affect 2.0.17 and earlier. Check out http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/15243, http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/15246 and http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/15170

So far 2.0.18 doesn't have any bulletins on it yet, but in the phpbb.com announcement it states 2.0.18 was released to address bugs and also to address security issues identified by a code audit and user reports. (http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=336756)

If you haven't thought about upgrading, you might want to re-consider...
