    1. Shutdown your forums

    2. Backup your database (preferably using shell access via telnet or ssh.)

    3. Upload all the files from the vB 2.2.8 zip file, except:

    - install.php
    - the files in the 'extras' folder
    - the files in the 'images' folder and subfolders

    Make sure you upload all non-image files in ASCII and that you overwrite the ones on your server.

    4. Run upgrade20.php

    5. Run upgrade21.php

    6. Reopen your forums.

    Upgrading to vB 2.2.8

    This will be my first attempt to upgrade from my previous version of vBulletin 2.2.6 to v2.2.8.

    I read all the instructions... but want to know the easiest and safest way to do this... I already did the backups...

    Kindly post hints... Just to make sure everything will run fine...
