Thank you for this Mick.
The directions are very clear but I have some questions. I hope you can help me.
Backup all board files and the database.
- I was given these instructions by Bluehost for making a backup:
-Compress the folder public_html (compress by right-clicking on the root folder, then compress)
-Download the zip file to ftp
Can you tell me if that will backup both the DB and the board files? OR Should I use the Backup tool in ACP
This seems more sensible to me. (if yes it would help a lot if you could tell me the settings I should use)
Using FTP, delete the /vendor and /cache folders from the board's root folder on the host.
Do I just "Move" these files from the root folder to my FTP?
(Note: take care not to delete any extensions in your /ext folder when uploading the new phpBB3 contents.)
By "taking care" does this mean when asked if I want to overwrite files I answer YES except
for the /ext folder to which I answer, NO?
One last question:
Is it okay if I have the board set to "disabled" during the upgrade process?
