  • Question Regarding Upgrading From 3.0.7

    Although i installed my vB, i have never carried out an upgrade.
    So i'm a bit weary as i do not want to mess up my database etc.
    My current vB version is 3.0.7, i of course want to upgrade to the latest version [3.5.2].
    Do i need to upgrade from 3.0.7 to 3.0.8 and then from 3.0.8 to 3.0.9 and so on?
    Or is there a way i can upgrade STRAIGHT to version 3.5.2 from my current version of 3.0.7?

    [Sorry if i've confused you ;p]

    Also i would like to know, will all the modifications i've made be erased? And will my custom forum style be erased also?

    Any advice would be appreciated thank you.

    Please view the upgrade documentation here:

    The second page of the instructions mentions config.php and has another link with more info:

    And here are detailed instructions for upgrading from 3.0.x to 3.5.0:

    Upgrading will always overwrite any hacks or changes you made to the vB files. However it will not overwrite custom templates. Nonetheless you should seriorsly consider reverting any updated templates to get the full advantage of all bug fixes and improvements. This is particularly true when upgrading from 3.0 to 3.5 since there have been many changes to the templates.
