  • From lite to Vb2

    I installed the lite version soley to see if it would work and it did. I would like to purchase the full verision and am wondering what I would have to do to move from the lite version to the full version. Note, I do not have any messages that i want to import. Do I have to make a new database name or will it simply take over the one I created with the lite version? Is it just a simple matter of uploading the files the same way as with the lite version?

    Thanks,

    Dave

    if you don't need to import any posts, then you can either

    1. empty current vB lite database and use it for vB full version
    2. create new empty database and install vB 2.2.1 like you did for lite version by uploading php files and pointing config.php to the right database

    just that vB 2.2.1 has a few more steps in the installation process you need to go through

        when you install vb 2.0 it'll ask you if you want to clear the current database you are using.
