  • The exact procedures for update my vBBS?


    I received a mail from vBBS support with advice to update my vBBS to 2.03. Yes. I completed the shortcut for just updating the session.php at the moment. Now it is the real thing, I got vBBS 2.01 with the session.php (from the 2.03 pak) already updated. I want it update to version 2.03.

    Here is the procedures I am going to follow, please advice if there is anything wrong:

    1. upload *ONLY* upgrade11.php and upgrade12.php to my host.
    2. run upgrade11.php first, then upgrade12.php
    3. upload all remaining files in the 2.03 pak except install.php
    4. delete all upgradexx.php

    Is there anything I should also take into consideration?

    Thank you.

      In step 1, you need to also upload the '' file as well. I think the rest of your plan will be fine.

        Thanks. Both upgrade11 and upgrade12 reported successful update.

        But I only see there is some difference in the startup screen of the vBBS CP, I would not see any major difference of functions.
