check the docs in the download package for details on how to update. Backup your database before doing anyting!

basically:
backup database, unzip the main package, unzip the correct "sub-package" (2.0.4_to_2.0.6), upload, run /install/update_to_206.php

Hi,

As Primedomain said you unzip the correct "sub-package" (2.0.4_to_2.0.6), and upload ... make sure you keep the directory structure.
Then run /install/update_to_206.php :D

The instructions are all in the package in the docs dir :D
Cheers
Julie :)

first download "changed files"
second backup your phpbb2 folder (in case of danger :) )
third upload the changed files (of course first delete the older ones with the same name) but attentions if there are mods installed modify them on the changed files
forth download patch file and finally link the install
that's all
