  • The upgrade directions weren't very clear to me.. what do you mean just copy over the new directory? If I do that, my current theme and plug-ins will be overwritten by the new folders. I tried setting up a new directory, and moving in the plugins/themes/config but it kept giving me 404's.

    To make sure it works, clone your current forum folder, then follow the instructions here:

    That's what I did, and the upgrade worked like a charm and didn't over-write any of my theme files.

    When you're ready, you can just rename the cloned folder to the original one, or redirect request to the new folder.
