Upgrade phpBB forum with mods

I have phpBB forum on my site and I have a problem.
I have some mods applied on it (not done with EasyMOD), but can't
remember exactly which are they.
How can I upgrade that forum and still keep all users info and all
posts?

Maybe ask on the phpBB's forums, where the product is supported?

Upgrading a modded phpBB is tricky.

1) You could try the patch files which phpBB provides. If your local
phpBB is not changed too much an update should work. (Try with a copy
first !!!)

2) Get a program like WinMerge, and upgrade your files manually.
However this needs some understanding of php and what the mods
actually did.

Nevertheless, before you do an upgrade check, if the mod is supported
by the new version.

3) Get the new version of phpBB and add your mods again ...

Good luck
Martin

I've posted my query at the phpbb forum, where I got half an answer and then no more. I posted it again at another phpbb forum, where I got half an answer and no more. I posted it in alt.php, where I got half an answer, then no more. In desperation, I'm now posting again in alt.php, alt.comp.lang.php and comp.lang.php in the hope that someone will find the time to help. This was my original query:

About a year ago I obtained a username in the forums at http://www.phpbb.com in order to discuss a peeve about phpBB - it's search function. I posted a forum entry questioning the value of the two search context choices: "Search message text only" and "Search topic title and message text". Is this not brain dead? I used the example of the very topic of the "search"

I've recently seen a phpbb forum hacked. The hacker removed all accounts, formed only one admin acc under his control and removed all articles. How did he do that, anyway? And how can I protect my forums? I presume programers of phpBB took care of SQL injection and such well known attacks... so, what can I do as forum admin and (relatively) skilled PHP/MySQL programer to make sure something like that doesn't happen to my forum? (ofcourse,...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
