leave the files on the server alone.

upload all of the 3.1.6 files and folders except for the ones noted and the config.php file.

uploading a folder of the same name will NOT delete the one that is there. it merges with it. only files of the same name will overwrite each other. folders do not.

so, don't worry about your extensions whether they are activated or not. uploading new files will not affect them unless you delete them for some reason.

as for the database. updating the database does not affect your data , including your extensions, it only makes those changes that are needed for the update.

the whole point of phpbb 3.1 is about being able to update without affecting any of the extensions.

the whole point of the extension system is to do away with having to edit core files like MODs did.
therefore, to update, you can simply replace the old core files with new core files and you never have to worry about reinstalling your extensions or editing code etc.
