    Hi

    * Make a backup of the web files and the mysql database.
    `- Run optimize and repair first, to ensure a complete backup.

    * Close your board (Admin Control Panel: Options: vB options: Active: No)

    * Delete the RC3 web files (all data is in the database)

    * Upload the RC4 web files

    * Point your browser to yoursite.com/forum/install/upgrade.php
    `- follow on screen instructions -
    `- Done? Delete the upgrade*.php and install.php file from the install/ directory.


    But .. didn't the announcement come with upgrade instructions?

            Each forum version upgrade requires to complete overwrite any older file.
            So yes, this will loose all source code modifications.
