  • Upgrading to 2.3.0 from 2.2.6 (Help)?

    Hey guys,

    I am not very good on the computers (thats an understatement)- and I want to bring my board (http://www.exoticcarforums.com) to 2.3.0 so when the final release of 3.0 comes out we'll be ready. I downloaded the 2.3.0 installer and it has all the files that I see I already have in my FTP account- like index.php etc- everything- and I have a few questions- can I upgrade to 3.0 without replacing the previous files- I am guessing if I upload all the files in the "upload" folder then it'll erase my old folders, no?

    That being said- I don't want to loose the tweeks my old admins have done- I think they're quite cool. Any chance people could either a) help me install this without ruining my site lol, or b) explain it so well that I couldn't possibly fudge this up.


    The people who help will get free ExoticCarForums.com stickers! (Yes I know you guys want them soo badly).


    Thanks!

    When you upgrade, you'll lose any hacks that you have. There were tons of file changes since 2.2.6, so it'll be hard to save them.

    If you're upgrading to vB3 now, you'll need to upgrade to 2.3.0 then delete all of vB2's files - then run the vB3 upgrade script. (before you attempt to do that, backup your database)

        Yes you'll lose your hacks. For help in reinstalling them, follow the instructions in the appropriate hack threads at vbulletin.org.
