  • Uninstall forum to do reinstall

    I downloaded and installed the php4 version, but now i want to use the php version instead.

    Is there any particular procedure I should follow when removing the forum? Remove the database first?

    Thanks

    I can't think of any reason why you can't delete all the files and folders except /images, upload the new files, copy over the db settings from the old config file to the new one, and be up and running. I don't think the php vs. php3 vs php4 affects the database (could be wrong).

    Do you have any users/forums/etc. created yet?

      The problem with this is that the templates are now set up to link to the PHP4 files. There's probably a query you could run to update all of the templates, or import the new versions, however I'm not sure how it would be done.

        Ah true. If this is a mostly empty forum, I'd just delete it all and start over.
