1:Can the orignal phpBB folder can stay where it is?.
2: phpBB2 will have its own folder (phpBB2) and the upgrade script runs from there?.
i'm confused... you want to keep your 1.4 files also?? IMO it's best to delete 1.4 files (but make sure you have a backup copy just in case, and a backup copy of your database!) then upload phpbb2. then you can rename the folder to whatever you want and run the install.
3: all members of the old board are still members of phpBB2 board.
as long as you didn't install any mods to 1.4 that messed with the user table everything will be the same. it's a good idea after you upgrade your board to let all your users know to go thru and make sure their settings DID transfer over correctly.
4:All topics and posts will still be visible on the new board?.
5: Is it still possible to have "header and footer" html or tables? (like phpBB 1.4)?.
i think so... just edit overall_header.tpl and overall_footer.tpl in your template directory and you can make it whatever you want. it's not stored in the db like in 1.4 - it's in template files.
Thanks in advance.
