  • Upgrading to RC4

    I am running vb3 gamma right now and would like to upgrade to RC4. I was wondering how do I do this and is there a possibility of losing anything? And how about my styles, will they work?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi there,

    To upgrade from gamma to rc4:

    * Make a backup of your current working instance

    * Download the rc4 .zip
    * Unpack and update and rename it to config.php
    * Upload the rc4 files to your server, overwriting the ones there. (If you want, you can skip images)

    ## If you have any source code hacks installed, they will be lost.
    ## The templates have changed a bit since gamma, so you might need to revert most of them, any custom design has to be re-applied after upgrade

    * Run forum/install/upgrade.php and follow the on-screen instructions

    * Done!
