  • Help I'm scared to upgrade :(

    I've spent a lot of time installing my 2.2.1 and have customised and installed quite a lot of it and installed several hacks etc.

    Do I really need to upgrade to 2.2.3b, should I?

    If I really should, then how do I go about it without losing everything I'm scared of cocking it all up and losing the existing messages and members etc and all the extra features I've added.

    4. Upload the new files.

    5. Run the upgrade script.

    6. Test it out.

    7. Open the your forums back up.
