  • Upgrading from 3.0.3 to 3.6.8

    Hi guys,

    How easy is this, and what will I lose during the upgrade, thanks?

    I'm guessing this is what I do:
    1. Turn of my forum
    2. Upload the files contained in the 3.6.8 Patch Level 2 Zip
    3. Run the install file
    4. Turn on my forum
    Is that right? I can go straight from 3.0.3 to 3.6.8 or do I need to upgrade an earlier version first?

    Thanks.

    EDIT: Sorry I just found another thread about this. Please delete, thanks.

    1- Turn off the forum
    2- back up your current files and database
    3- download and unpack the 3.6.8pl2 zip file and edit the config.php.new file (also rename it to config.php)
    4- upload the files, overwriting what's already there
    5- run upgrade.php (not! install.php!)
    6- test your forums, usergroups and global settings
    7- turn on the forum

      How exactly do you run upgrade.php? Is this done in the admin cp?

      Sorry, I'm a noob and I need to do my first upgrade from 3.6.5 to 3.6.8 patch level 2.

      Do I need all files that are in between 3.6.5 and 3.6.8p2?

      I've searched and I cannot find step by step upgrade instructions....but I know I must not be looking in the right place.

      Thanks for any help!

      Rick
