first off, in the Administration panel, the Forum Index and Preview Forum links do not work, they redirect to a 404.

so, i figured that this would probably be fixed in the newest version. Naturally, i downloaded the file and followed the instructions for the install. unfortunately, the install failed with the reason being that my MySQL db is missing certain tables although my forums and site work perfectly fine.

I am running PHP-Nuke 7.0 with BBtoNuke 2.0.6

Any ideas?

As I understand it, the BBToNuke packages are not cumulative. You will need to install each sequentially to get up to 2.0.11. There are certain bugs with 2.0.11, so I recommend keeping to 2.0.10 for now (and applying the viewtopic patch manually)

Is there a way to roll back a patch? I installed 2.0.11 and am having problems with user groups now. Can I just do what I did with 11 with 10?

This is one of those 'Catch-22' situations. 2.0.11 is buggier than a lollipop in an Ant Farm, but the alternative is a critically unsecure version, albeit stable.

With that in mind...

We have now released phpBB 2.0.11, the "damn, it's cold and my fur won't grow back" edition. This fixes a number of issues, introduces visual confirmation as standard and addresses a potentially serious exploit. We encourage everyone to update as soon as possible. We also encourage any hosting providers out there to contact and/or update users copies of phpBB to this latest version. Please spread news of this release far and wide.

This is a reminder to all [phpBB Forums] users to upgrade as soon as possible to 2.0.11. Remember, the issue leading to this release was extremely serious. It gave rise to the possibility for persons to "install" scripts, delete files and otherwise access your system. If you have upgraded, be sure to check your account/system for suspicious files, etc. If you have any concerns please raise them in the support forum here at phpbb.com.

You should always be aware of what files are present on your system, that is good practice. If you run your own server you should install (wherever) possible tripwire or similar applications to limit the potential damage exploits (in phpBB and other software) may cause.

Now, let me reiterate something ... we do take security issues seriously. It's incredibly infuriating for us to read comments such as "I don't think the developers do take these things seriously", utter utter tripe and bolderdash. Equally we have complaints about notifications of new releases. I agree, something which pushes info on new releases is required. I've noted this internally before and perhaps now we'll get this implemented. However you can be notified of new package availability by "Monitoring" the phpBB releases at Sourceforge.

Please be aware that you should be fully aware of what software you are using. While we can (and will) do better at giving users notification in future it is your installation ... always keep an eye out for new releases, be it phpBB or anything else.

Personally, I opted for the bugs instead of the hackers, but that's a choice ppl need to make for themselves. I suppose it comes down to a matter of how often your site is attacked... Wink

The easiest way would be to restore it from a recent backup...

No thanks. Not after that post you made before this one! I will stick with the bugs and wait for a future release.

Thanks for the reply!

What are the bugs in 2.0.11? I just installed it and it seems to be working okay... (and mind you, I'm using a 6.5 install)
