Updating language packs

Post by Rien.nl » Fri Nov 26, 2010 6:40 am

I have updated my forum from 3.0.6 to 3.0.8
I also have 3 older language packs installed. I want to update them with the latest available.
What is the procedure to do this?
Do i first need to de-install the older language packs or can i just upgrade it with the old packs installed/online?
I ask this because folder structure remains the same and files will be copied in the same folders.
Always on the move for some action.

If you do not have any custom modifications, it's easy. Just overwrite the old files with new ones.

If you have some edits, like new language keys in common.php for a MOD or something you should be careful to not lose your changes. Find them, note them and paste them to the new files. Then again, overwrite the old files with the modified new language pack files.
