    Yes, I did.
    I realized that all of the files that were incorrect were from the v4.1.12 patch that I uploaded.
    I just let the upgrade.php run and all is fine now.

    Now I will proceed with the v4.1.10 to v4.1.12
    Will I need to run that patch after I upload v4.1.12?

    Thanks for all your help!!

      The best way to explain it is:

      If your running 4.1.10 then you only download the patch for 4.1.10 and apply that.
      If your upgrading to a new version i.e. 4.1.12 then download a full copy of it and run the upgrade script as the new 4.1.12 contains the patch already .

      So in other words no, you don't need to patch 4.1.10 before upgrading to 4.1.12, you can skip the 4.1.10 patch and simply upgrade to the current (and patched) 4.1.12 .

            Is this video applicable to versions 4.1.x to 4.2? If not, is there a better video for upgrading to 4.2? Thanks.

              This video is slightly outdated however in a good way, meaning that the upgrade script is now much more automated. If your going from 4.1 to 4.2 unless you have many custom modifications it should be a simple process of:

              1) Closing and backing up the forum (both files and a database backup).
              2) Uploading the new 4.2 files.
              3) Running the upgrade script.

              * If anything goes wrong, you can restore the files and drop all tables and re-import the database backup.
              ** Please Note: Test sites are best used when your not sure about a upgrade, in fact they should be used to check any upgrade (better safe then sorry imo) and there's no guarantee your database backup is good until you test it!
