  • Upgrading to 3.07 & template changes

    I did a trial run through of upgrading my server to make sure it worked properly, the re-added a hack or two in the templates.

    Now I want to run through the process live, & backup the latest mysql database so I have the latest info. Can I just import the new mysql db into the board as it (it's now a 3.7 bd), or do I have to do the upgrade on the databases again, since they are 3.03 databases.

    If I have to upgrade the databases again, would I have to re-apply the hacks to the templates or do the templates stay unchanged in the upgrade script?

    You cannot use a 3.0.3 databaase with 3.0.7 files. You will need top run the upgrade process.

    Upgrading will always overwrite any hacks or changes you made to the vB files. However it will not overwrite custom templates. Nonetheless you should seriously consider reverting any updated templates to get the full advantage of all bug fixes and improvements.
