  • I'm ready to upgrade to 3.5.1.

    Currently, I'm using 3.0.9, and I'm now ready to upgrade to 3.5.1, though. I made a backup of my database (including the daily backups via my host), so I've no problems there. However, what is the minimum that needs to be uploaded for the upgrade to go smoothly? Or, do I upload the complete 3.5.1 package and then run /install/upgrade.php?

    Quillz, I've been using Eva2000's method (http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showthread.php?t=158122) on my personal sites & customer sites with no problems.

      Seems a bit complicated, but effective. Is there a simpler way, though?

        There are simpler ways, but as Eva2000 points out in that thread, if anything goes wrong in the middle of the upgrade it's best to have your production DB & files completely isolated from the area that's being updated. By using a second instance if you get an error in the upgrade it's a lot easier to just stop for the night and submit a help request then it would be to try & recover your live site.

          Out of curiosity, what is the simplest and quickest way to upgrade? Like I said, I already got a .sql backup of my database, so is it possible to completely replace all current files with the new 3.5.1 files, then run /install/upgrade.php?

              I unzipped the patch files, uploaded them, ran intall/upgrade.php (5 steps)
              But for some reason in admin I still have the message that I am running 3.50 and need to upgrade. What gives?

                  Patching is just that, patching, if you want to upgrade, upload all of the new files from the 3.5.1 zip and run upgrade.php
