Ok,

So im not exactally an expert here but i think i can get this done. So basically save all the DL and Download tables. drop all of them, install the ext and then restore the tables.

Should i be doing this save and restore from inside the PHPBB ACP? or from phpmyadmin.

I was playing in the test forum in phpmyadmin and if a table existed but empty it wouldnt let me import to the table. only if i droped the table and then imported. So wouldnt i have the same problem after the EXT is installed? and wont the table structure be different?

Also you kinda confused me slightly. or maybe a translation problem. i dont have to get an old version of 3.0.8 going in order to update to 6.5.33. thats alot of work.

Sorry, no chance.
If you will try to upgrade from a release prior 6.5.33 to the newest extension release you need to upgrade the mod to the latest 6.x release before you can upgrade to the latest one.

There's definely no way to upgrade by the extension itself.
With the extension release 7.0.0 the support for all previous releases have been dropped.

You can only upgrade the database schema of the mod by using the old database install script on a phpBB 3.0.x board.

Ok oxpus. thanks for all your help i guess i really wish i asked you all this before.....

SO last question and i think ill be all set. if i install a raw copy of version of 3.0.8, install your mod 6.4.13. import all my tables prefix DL and prefix downloads.
Then run the update script for 6.5.33. then export all the same tables from the 3.0.8 install and import them back into my current PHPBB 3.3 database.

Then i should be able to enable the current version of the Extension.

I have this correct?

Thanks again

Ok, i did ALL of that.... still same message.

So i was wondering the following.

A. I noticed between 6.4.13 and 6.5.33 you added some pbpbb_config rows.... so those would not have transfered cause we just transfered the tables DL and Downloads. could this be an issue? could we fix it manually?
B. The value in this table that shows the DL_mod version would still be at 6.4.13 would i have to fix that manually for the extension to install?, change to 6.5.33?
C. as a second to last resort..... I use this mod/ext in its simplest form. meaning downloads, thumbs and catergorys and permissions. i dont use ANY of the other features, ratings bug reports, etc etc. Possible to delete the data and install it fresh. then import only the tables for categorys and Downloads, and maybe the Auth? or manually fix a few things.

D. Also you referenced version 7.0.0 a bunch of times even tho the current one for 3.3 is 8.x. Do i have to first install 7.0.0 and then upgrade it to current?

A This config rows shall exists if you have installed the extension error free.
B The version will be simple stay on the old one if you will not manually update this. You will found the version value in the table phpbb_config. And at least drop the forum cache to get the real mod release number after changing it manually in the dasabase.
C The extension needs all basic data to work even when you do not use all functions. So you needs to upgrade with the complete data schema.
D If you van install release 7 and update to the newest,
why not. But the 7.x will not work error free in a phpbb 3.3.x!

At least you need to proof the php settings to be able to install the extension. Some php settings e. g. memory limits or time limits should be increased.
Compare your php online settings with the local Installation. Maybe you will find possible differences.

Or you can backup your online forum database, restore this into the local one and install the extension there. And then copy back the database to the online forum.

The folder structure was moved to /files/dlext/
So please move all folders under /ext/oxpus/dl_ext/files/ into the new place.
And regard the new folder name "dlext" without "_".
