I have fallen behind. What is the easiest upgrade method? Thank you.

If you have no mods installed the easiest way is to upload RC4 (except config.php) over your current files and then run database_update.php from the install folder.

If you have installed any mods then you will need the changed files and you will have to do a compare of the changed files with your files. Again you will have to run database_update.php. You will need to make sure that any mods are RC4 compatible.

Also remember that if you have installed any styles you will need an RC4 compatible version.

Ok, so far so good but I am getting a message that says:

"Please make sure you have updated your board files too, this file is only updating your database."

ignore it? Everything seems to be perfect.

Thanks again.

If you have uploaded everything then yes you can ignore it - it is just a reminder. The problem could be that if you updated the database and not the files, or the other way round, then you may get errors.
