XenForo 2.2.7 Patch 1 and Importers 1.5.1 Released

XenForo 2.2.7 Released​

XenForo 2.2.7 is now available for all licensed customers to download. We strongly recommend that all customers running previous versions of XenForo 2.2 upgrade to this release to benefit from increased stability.

Notably, XenForo 2.2.7 includes a fix for a potentially significant issue surrounding IP address spoofing in very specific circumstances using previously trusted IP address ranges. Thanks to NamePros for taking the time to report this issue.

One-click upgrade to XenForo 2.2.7

Directly from your admin control panel

If you are a XenForo Cloud customer, your upgrade will be scheduled automatically.

In addition to the usual bug fixes and improvements, there is a database schema change which may take significant time to perform. If you have a particularly large xf_attachment and xf_attachmet_data table (several million records) then we recommend performing a CLI upgrade.

XenForo 2.2.7 is also the first version to support cleaning up files that belong to uninstalled add-ons. You can read more about that here.

Some of the changes in XF 2.2.7 include:

The following public templates have had changes:
  • _help_page_bb_codes

Installation, upgrading and configuration​

XenForo 2.2.7 Patch 1 Released​

XenForo 2.2.7 inadvertently shipped with an implicit minimum requirement of PHP 7.1 due to the way that newer versions of composer attempt to validate your platform is compatible with the included dependencies.

If you're currently running PHP 7.0 you may have been unable to upgrade to or run XenForo 2.2.7. Patch 1 removes this platform check.

Additionally, if you're currently running PHP 7.0 we would strongly urge you to consider upgrading to a newer version as soon as possible. XenForo 2.3 will be shipping with a minimum requirement of PHP 7.2.5. We currently recommend upgrading to PHP 8.0 where possible.

You may now upgrade from your admin control panel or grab the new version from the customer area.

If you are a XenForo Cloud customer you will not receive this update as it does not apply to you.
