    Don't listen to advice from people who aren't trained or don't know what they're talking about. Obviously you should not run install, this will INSTALL and not upgrade. Upgrade however, will actually upgrade your forum.

    Before you upgrade, always make a backup.

    Summery of procedure:

    * Close your public forums.

    * back up your database and your files.

    * Download of 3.6.6

    * Unpack it on your hard drive.

    * Upload the 3.6.6 files, overwriting the old files, to your web site.
    if you have a public_html/ directory where currently the files are, then browse into this directory first. Sometimes this dir is also called www/ or mainsite/

    * Once uploaded, go to the browser, and load your site, but instead of index.php enter install/upgrade.php


    * Once upgraded, test your forum if it works, and then open it again.

        I can't IM you, sorry. This forum or a support ticket is where I can help.
        The guidelines are on the manual I posted in my earlier post reply.

          The "old" files will be on your server in whichever directory you have installed them.
