I’m one of two people who helps with sys admin tasks for the webcomic Twokinds – astute readers will recognise the comic name because I ended up doing the RSS and archive scripts for Tom too.
But recently I decided to update phpBB and the VPS. Get everything up to date wherever possible. The VPS was straightforward – it’s running CentOS, so yum update sorted everything out.
However, the forums were more trouble than I anticipated.
tl;dr – Don’t use the FTP upload function when updating phpBB, upload the zip file to the webserver, su to the webserver user and unzip and rsync the files over.
