    I can remove the "install" directory after upgrade?

    I just upgraded from 3.0.3 to 3.0.5, and I was wondering if it'd be safe to remove the "install" directory? It seems harmless, but I couldn't find anything in the readme or online documentation that said it would be okay. The idea of an "install" directory intact after upgrade makes me uncomfortable.

    You shoul;d not remove the install directory, just remove install.php, it is the only file that could even possibly harm your forum.

      You can remove the directory after install, you'll just need to reupload it with every upgrade.

        I'd recommend leaving it in place and removing all files except the .xml files. Those can come in handy if you run into style and language problems.
