    Upgrade instructions

    To upgrade from 2.0.18 (any patch level)

    1. Test your 2.0 theme and plugins against 2.1 on a separate install somewhere safe. Your theme will almost undoubtedly need revisions. Please report issues you find in plugins.
    2. Backup your database and /conf/config.php file.
    3. Copy all 2.1 files over your 2.0 install
    4. Delete the files /themes/mobile/views/discussions/helper_functions.php AND /applications\dashboard\views\default.master.php (not default.master.tpl which should also be in that folder)
    5. Run /index.php?p=/utility/update to update the database. It may take a while. If it fails, run it again. It picks up where it left off if it doesn't complete due to a timeout.

    Yes, 2.1 does not wipe any data. It is a compatible upgrade. Follow the instructions and you should have clear sailing.

    I'm facing an issue trying to update from to 2.1 stable.

    I followed all the instructions and when I run update script, it goes to setup script as if it doesn't recognize existing installation.

    Any ideas?
