phpBB3?

Post by ScottD » Fri Nov 30, 2007 4:51 pm

Any chance of getting this added at all?

phpBB3, while it's still in it's Beta/RC stages is still leaps and bounds better than phpBB2 in many respects, and I 'imagine' that it wouldn't be much work to copy over the phpBB2 routine in Installatron and use that as a quick base to add it.

Once we finished Installatron5 we will probably add the current version of phpBB to the installer.

since it it no longer rc is there any hope this one could be bumped up? My users are nagging me a lot about this.

Hi,

Yes, we'll start work on a phpBB3 installer now, and look to have it ready by (or soon after) Installatron 5.0 final's release. I don't think it'll be before the end of the month, but it might be.

Installatron 5.1 will have a new Import button, which will allow non-Installatron installs to be imported into the Installatron system. So if your users want to install it manually now, they can import it to Installatron later.

3.4.4 is the current stable/production release, 5.0 is the version we're working to finish, and 5.1 will be next version after that.

5.0 is very close now.

Okay, fair enough.

But how long is it actually going to take until the big public (meaning the customers who can only user the version installed by their Host, meaning, last stable version)... the big public is gonna be able to use phpBB3 in iTron/Installatron ?

Hi,

I don't really understand your question there.

But our expected timeline is: Installatron 5 final in ~2 days (plus or minus a day). Any server with the correct CRON stuff set up will automatically upgrade to i5 within 24 hours of that release. Those without the CRON will need to run a couple of commands (we'll send an email, plus the info will be on the website).

The new phpBB3 installer will be available either with the release of i5 final, or will be the first thing we do afterwards. So it will be available in under a week.

Rowan.
