    i've got a generell upgrade question, when upgrading from for example 4.1.2 to 4.1.3 i only have to replace the files that are marked as updated and add the new files, right? or do i have to replace ALL the files? (i noticed even the one that weren't updated now say version 4.1.3 at the top)

    and afterwards just go to install/upgrade_version.php.

    please let me know if i am mistaken.
    so what's new?

      Recommended:replace all files


      vB5 is unequivocally the best forum software, but not yet...

          It should do but if you ever require support, you will be asked to upload ALL files.

              Hi,
              I always do upgrade by following video steps and it always worked out today i was doing upgrade from 4.1.3 to 4.1.3 PL 1 and when i am trying to run the upgrade script by typing
              www.xxxxxxxxxxxx.com/install/upgrade.php
              i get this error

              Forbidden

              You don't have permission to access /install/upgrade.php on this server.
              Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

              can anyone help or tell why m getting this error ?? how to solve this ??

              Thanks

                    Some helpful information is here ( https://www.vbulletin.com/forum/show...s-and-Recovery! ) regarding upgrading from vBulletin 3.x to 4.x, the key things to note are:

                    - Disable the site via admincp.
                    - Backup Database and files beforehand.
                    - Disable all modifications.
                    - Run the upgrade script.
                    - Upgrade modifications if a vB4 version is available otherwise leave disabled until they are updated or uninstall them.
                    - Check the forums i.e. make a new post, send a pm to yourself etc and browse around, if no issues after the upgrade, enable the forums and enjoy!

                      Just wondering by chance if it is potentially possible to upgrade a live vB site and leaving the database and CMS intact, like one would when upgrading their WordPress installation ? Curious, because with WP, you can leave your DB & CMS intact without backing up, and still be ok, after upgrading the installation to the latest CMS install. Please advise. Thank you.

                        If the upgrade involves database changes then you need to make them.

                          So it is possible, after backing up your DB and dumping it to your desktop, to upgrade a live site?

                            Yes - Although if your just now learning about backups, I recommend you attempt to restore a backup into a /testvb and if the site is able to be restored, you know your backups are being performed correctly .

                              I am upgrading from v4.1.10 to v.4.1.12
                              I ran the upgrade.php and got the following errors.

                              Due to the following errors, the install/upgrade can not continue:
                              ·
                              · Following is a list of files that are either missing or contain unexpected contents. The most likely cause is that all of the files from this release have not been properly uploaded. You should resolve this error before continuing.
                              /api.php - File does not contain expected contents

                              What is my next move?

                                By some off chance did you choose to patch instead of a full upgrade? See here as to why I'm asking - https://www.vbulletin.com/forum/show...rum-04-23-2012 the last post by Paul. Let me know if that is not the case and we'll look into this further .
