  • Upgrading vs. Clean Install?

    I have an odd one here.

    I don't have access to the ALTER command in MySQL on my server (Vservers), so I can't upgrade from 1.1.3 to 1.1.5.

    I CAN however export the database to a file, reinstall 1.1.5 fresh and import.

    My question is, If I do this, will I see any improvement? Since the tables are 1.1.3'ed, so to speek, and they never get changed to the 1.1.5 format.

    Any input = good. :)

    Just get ALTER permissions. 1.1.3->1.1.5 has no db structure changes so you could just upload the new files overtop, but you'll have a big problem when it comes to vB2.

      I can't get those permissions unfortunatly.

      I will just do the export / install clean / import for now, and by the time 2.0 comes out, I'll be on my new dedicated box where I have all the permission I want :)

      Thanks Ed, as always.
