PhpBB3 update advice needed.

Post by Unre4L »


I want to update my phpbb3 forum to the latest version, but I have a few questions since I havent done this before. How badly will it mess up the Mods I have installed?
I have installed the Redbar, anti Bot question Mod, Evil quick Reply and made a lot of layout changes to the main template.
If the update replaces files in the phpbb directory then the changes I have made will be gone. So I guess I am asking for the most practical way of updating the forum.

Thank you.

Use the automatic update version on the download page. That will show you any file merge results and allow you to see any conflicts.
