How do I upgrade from phpBB 2.0.23 to the latest version?

Hi guys. I'm trying to restore an old forum. To get the MySQL backup to work I had to install version 2.0.23. Thing is, how do I update this to the latest version of phpBB? I've looked all over the site and have searched the forum but still haven't been able to find a guide or the files do download?...

Re: Forum Restore Failing?

Hi,

Thanks for the replies.

The file is 20mb big and some 500,000 lines....

Is this as simple as doing a find & replace?

Re: Forum Restore Failing?

Cheers for the reply.

When I try updating using the MySQL GUI, it doesn't recognise the file.

When I try MySQL restore from the command prompt, it says error 1068: Multiple Primary Key... and won't progress.

Any ideas?
