    Confused about upgrading 3.7.2 to 3.7.3

    Hi guys,

    Please bare with me as this is the first complete upgrade i've done.

    The manual says upload "upload dir" to your webspace.

    Does that mean upload the content to my active forum directory and overwrite files?

    As I have uploaded the upload dir to a dir called /upload/ and called the upgrade script from my 3.7.2 forum and kept pressing next until finished and it's still 3.7.2.

    Please help as my forum is currently closed and i don't want to reopen the rebackup everything.

    Thanks very much.

      Yes as another question you asked. To make more clear.

      "Do I overwrite all files/Folders?"

        Thanks guys.. the "quick upgrade" guide should be much more clear to be honest.

        I have just finished/found the longer upgrade guide and that is better but the quick guide is completely misleading in my opinion.

        Got it working on my test forum, just uploading files to the real forum now!
