Update to phpBB 3.3.5 and some other server maintenance

Post by Martin Blank » Wed Jan 26, 2022 4:00 am

Tonight, I went to update the server to address a potential vulnerability from PwnKit. In doing so, a bunch of other upgrades came with, including one for MariaDB which somehow forgot to install the actual server part of that software. Because of that and because the error messages weren't very helpful, it took me about a half-hour or so to fix things.

Anyway, the server is now running on PHP 8.1, so it should be faster and theoretically more secure, though I think phpBB isn't yet using any of the fancy new features in PHP 8 like static typing. It's also on phpBB 3.3.5, but will probably get 3.3.6 soon, as that's in release-candidate status.

As usual, drop me a line here or on Facebook if you run into any problems.

Thank you for keeping RLF going in good shape!

Updated the youtube BBCode to NOT go looking for Adobe Flash. Edited one of Deacon's failed YouTube attempts to make sure it worked.

Re-enabled HTTP/2 in a way that I think should not have stupid random timeout errors. Please report if you run into them.

What's the best way to report such errors (or otherwise a downed forum, etc)?

Facebook using the Real Life Forums page is one option. You can also hit me up on Google Chat at jfrates@gmail.com or Twitter via @jarrodfrates. One of those at least should work for everyone.

Got it, thanks!
