The release notes for 3.2 say there is a new method of updating (within 3.2, not 3.1-3.2). I can't seem to find any information about how it works and how it is different to what we had in 3.1. Can anyone point me in the right direction please?
the best way to update is to replace all old files with new ones except for the config.php file and then in your browser access the install folder and click the update button and then click update database only.
that has basically been the best way to update since phpbb 3.1
if , for some reason, you have edited your core files then this method would require you to re edit them after each update. therefore, the old automatic update method is still available and will solve that problem.
I'm baaaaaccckkkk. still doing work on donation basis. PM your needs.
