Updating my forums.

Post by Chaos31 » Thu Feb 21, 2008 9:07 pm

Alright so I'm upgrading my board to the latest version and I'm a little curious if I'm doing this right, here's what I've done.

1. Downloaded newest phpbb version.
2. Extracted to a folder on desktop.
3. Downloaded config file to my pc and renamed it also.
4. Uploaded all of the newest files, so over right all of it.
5. Then replaced with old config.php

Now do I just delete install and contrib folder and its ready or do I need to run something, I'm a little nervous I screwed up.
