Hello everybody,

First of all sorry about my english, i've to improve it, i will. I promise! ;)

This is the situation:
I've installed some MODs on my phpBB 2.0.19 installation:
- BBCODE YOUTUBE
- THE HUMANIZER
- OCULT E-MAIL ADRES (i don't remember the MOD's name)
- SIMPLE SUBFORUMS

Now I would like to upgrade to 2.0.22 verison.
My questions are:
1. Is 2.0.22 much better than 2.0.19? Which are the most remarcable new features?
2. How can I upgrade to 2.0.22 version?
3. Will be lots of problems with MODs?
4. Do you recomend this migration?

Lots of Thanks,
peweT

The updates contain security and bug fixes. There are no new features unless you convert to phpBB3.

As you have MODs installed you can either go for the change files version of the update and reinstall the MODs afterwards or use the code changes to go from 19>20, 20>21 and then 21>22.

You should be ok with the code changes update. As with all forum file edits, back up all the files before you start.

Yes. You're 3 versions behind and as that's 3 sets of security updates you're missing, you are vulnerable to attack.
