phpBB 2.0.16 has been sent to haunt me

Yesterday I finally finished upgrading all my forums to phpBB 2.0.15 and today I finished patching all the external scripts I thought I had. Huzzah! Like a months work finally finished. I joked with Ceon that I would be seriously annoyed if phpBB released phpBB 2.0.16 tomorrow.

Well I am pretty sure they won’t be doing that. Mainly because they released it today! Yes, I had just finished patching everything and they bring out a new version. And things just kept getting more annoying.

I managed to streamline the phpBB upgrade process however. I managed to update the 16 installs I keep up to date in an hour or two. Deep down I think I wanted the new release to see how fast I could do it and it came off well.

I realised other problems though – I had a version of Coppermine that I hadn’t checked for an update, there had been one which I am doing now. I missed phpAdsNew off the list altogether and have remembered two of those that I havenít updated, although one I am taking offline. Finally I think I have some Snitz to upgrade.

So I’m not so upgraded after all. But don’t get me wrong I am a lot closer when I was. I had two wikis that needed upgrading which has been done along with upgrading one of my vBulletin‘s from 3.0.3 to 3.0.7, some other script upgrades and of course all my phpBB installs.

Some of these were really old. Like 2.0.6. In fact, Audio Senate was 2.0.5 although what I did there because of the mods was scrap the original script, bring in a whole new set of files and re-mod them. I actually took out several mods so make it easier to update, I’ll be staying on top of them now.
