    Just rewrite config.php with new database. You can restore backup to any database

    No it wont work, you'll have a 3.0.3 database with 3.6.5 tables.

    Restore 3.0.3 and upgrade to 3.6.5.

    will a 3.0.3 backup restore to 3.6.5?

    Hi there,

    I want to know will i be able to do a clean install of 3.6.5 and then load up a 3.0.3 sql db backup?

    will this work? or do i need to install 3.0.3 then run the back up and install 3.6.5 over the top.. i would prefer to to the former than the latter!
