You mean MOD, don't you? Yes you do. :P That depends on how you choose to update.

No question is a dumb question. If you don't ask how will you learn ? :D Anyway, yes you will have to reinstall/redo most of your mods if the files that they are in are changed in the upgrade. There should be a list of files that are changed and if your mods are in those files you will have to reinstall your upgrades.
From the last upgrade install instructions wrote: if you have installed any Mods these files will overwrite the originals possibly destroying them in the process. You will need to re-add Mods to any affected file before uploading


What I normally do is a full fresh install each time and then redo all the mods over again. One of the reasons why I am anxiously waiting for this release. There are a few mods I want to implement and I'd rather wait for 2.0.4 to implement them rather than do it on 2.0.3 and the a week later have to redo them on 2.0.4. I find this easier than doing an upgrade and then insatlling the mods that were overwritten.

It is a good idea to be on the most upto date version (2.0.xx) as theoretically the last .xx version should have the least number of security holes.

this is what you get if you expect a release date, i do not count on them at all. :)

Therefore, it's released when it is released. :D

View count is unique - if a user views a thread 100 times he is only counted 1 time


You folks aren't going to do that are you? This thread has been viewed 2912 times. I've probably viewed it 20 or 30 times, and other users have done the same. That's a really lame idea if you ask me.


Can I get an answer (please)? I really don't think this is a good idea.

erm, no offence John but please don't "expect" us to answer every question you have on 2.2 ... just keep an eye on it and you'll see what it will and will not do. The answer though in this case is no.

Yeah nice job, keep it up, and no precipitation, long time and good have more value than quick time and bad.

I hope that you had a nice Christmas. I look forward to the next version. I like that when released you have a stable, secure program going. Take care...
What, like I should believe you?

Well following this thread by now you should have realised that 2.0.4 is almost a 100% complete. There probably are a couple of things that need to get cleaned up/finished up and that could take as much as they want. Isn't that always the case, the last couple of things take forever.

Anyway, I would assume that we can except the final release of 2.0.4 out in the next few days. I'm hoping for before New Year's so that I still have some time to implement it before I get back to my day job in the 2003. :D

If I get time I'll try to release what I can before then but no promises.
CVS (the phpBB-2_0_0 branch) is pretty much what those packages will consist of so you "should" be okay using that if you really want it now ... but I cannot guarantee that things won't change in the next two or three days.


is what I am going by. Maybe something new came up as well since then but I have no way of knowing. :)

Have you even read this thread? The very same question has been answered at least 3 times in the last 7 pages.
