  • The Best way to upgrade when moving to a new server

    I currently have 3.0.1 with 3 - 4 hacks including a 4images integration hack. however, i'm moving to a new web host. Should install the 3.0.3 and dump the data from my old host or install 3.0.1, dump then upgrade? Also, i've never upgraded before, do i need to rehack?

    We can't provide support for hacks, so my suggestion is to make a backup of the web files, the mysql database and move those to a new server. Import the .sql dump and update config.php - then upgrade to 3.0.3 and re-apply your source code modifications. has detailed step by step instructions on how to move your forum from one server to another, how to backup and restore your database.
