Not many people use my forum. Only about 20 of us. Scared of screwing something up by upgrading.
that if fine, but you will be unscrewing things for days, if you don't. it is your choice.
upgrading is a very easy process ,just unzip, drag and drop, etc. no problem
just fyi, remember all of your posts, members, etc. etc are in the database ,not in the phpbb files. therefore, if you completely deleted the phbb files, you would not lose a thing.
