Simple Machines is happy to bring you the latest update to SMF. As always, it contains some bugfixes. While most of the changes are minor, one of the fixes is important. We strongly suggest that you upgrade to this version, because it's more stable and secure.

What's changed:

  • fixed a few minor issues
  • updated the URL to the lacnic whois server
  • fixed "notify of replies" getting turned off accidentally
  • database error emails weren't always or often sending
  • a few theoretically possible security related issues were tightened down

As always, we would appreciate if you give us constructive feedback about this release, as well as bug reports.

If you are upgrading from 1.0.2, the easiest way to update is through the package manager.  If not, you only need to use the "update" package as it includes only the changed files since 1.0's release. However, if you have any mods installed it would be better to use the "upgrade" package because it contains all the files for an SMF installation. Remember that you can use the "upgrade" package to come from any previous version of SMF, as well as from YaBB SE 1.5.1 or higher.

The package manager failed to update $boarddir/index.php correctly

The following needs to be corrected (in smf_1-0-3.mod)

<search for>
$forum_version = 'SMF 1.0.3';
</search for>

$forum_version = 'SMF 1.0.3';

should be

<search for>
$forum_version = 'SMF 1.0.2';
</search for>

$forum_version = 'SMF 1.0.3';


Done, that's what I get for not uploading the one I made just before I left to work and redoing it at home.




I've problems using package manager to upgrade due to ftp permission problem but I'm reading up on that, so not an issue.

But I would like to know what files or folders must not be chmod to 777 or if chmod to 777 for upgrading purposes, must be chmod back to the original permission after upgrading?

Upgrade went great, apart from updating the update log, although that's never updated correctly for me since the 1.0.1 update? Ah well, thanks all  :)



its not a security risk, if the admin knows what he does. Updating went fine like allways. my member reports that it is running faster now although i see no changes or idea why. but, if member happy, i`m happy. :) bad english, just german, sry.


Updating..... (Package Manager)

Failed, needs to open stream blady, blah

I am again having issues with getting the package manager to install this patch:

2: fopen("/<root>/community/Sources/News.php", "w") - Permission denied
File: /<root>/community/Sources/Subs-Package.php
Line: 1454

Would fix_ownership help with this or is it something else?


the SMF news needs to be updated :P

QuoteNews: If you're not yet using the latest version, SMF 1.0.2, please upgrade as soon as possible.

Please do not PM for support - anything else is usually OK.


I'm new to SMF so this was my first opportunity to use the package manager to update my forum, and I have to admit that I'm impressed. I've never been able to apply a forum update so quickly or easily. Kudos to the SMF team!

Using the following link

I get the following error:
QuoteAn Error Has Occurred!   
The package you are trying to download or install is either corrupt or not compatible with this version of SMF.


Thank you so much.  I think that SMF will out do any and all the other forums(Paid or Free).  Hope to see verson 1.1 soon.
