Topic: problem with updating from 1.2.* to 1.3

I followed the steps in the wiki.

I then typed in the forum home page in the browser, clicked the db_update.php link  which only partially loads.
The source code of the resulting page:

 <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en" dir="ltr">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<title>PunBB Database Update</title>

The db does not seem to have been updated and the forum is now not accessible.

Any ideas on how I could resolve this?

Updated this section of wiki page.
Though you must be trying to go the right way.

Looks like you've missed something while replacing old files with new ones.
Try again. E.g.:
1. You have PunBB 1.2 in /www/forum and your forum URL is http://example.com/forum.
2. Rename /www/forum to /www/forum_old.
3. Created /www/forum again and put PunBB 1.3 there.
4. Copy /www/forum_old/config.php to new /www/forum. (You may also need to copy /www/forum_old/img/avatars to /www/forum/img/avatars.)
5. Open http://example.com/forum in the browser.

NB: Do not forget to create a database backup before update!

There is one problem with banned users. The list of banned users is not displayed at Administration / Users / Bans. How can one to unban a user? I've transfered the forum from version 1.2.20 to 1.3. neutral

Waiting for the dump from you to test it.

Hi Anatoly,

many thanks, your proposed update method worked like a dream. All I need to do now is install the anti-spam plugins and open the forum again.

Many thanks for your hard work.
