What's the best way to go???

Post by joeschmoe »

I currently am WAY behind on updates. I am running 3.0.0 and see that phpBB is now version 3.0.4, would it be best to do a "clean" install or just update the files and go on?

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

1.Revert back to the Default Style

2.# Upload all new files from a download of the full 3.0.4 version, except for config.php, the /images and /files folders.
# Go to yoursite.com/forumfolder/install/database_update.php
# Let that run and then delete the install folder.
# You now have a new up to date board.

3.Download the Updated Version of your Vista Style and enjoy :)
