upgrade to 2.0.18.13

I am running 2.0.18.11 and when i upgrade to latest 2.0.18.13 should i overwrite only files or any upgrade scripts to run?
If you can give me list of updated files then i can overwrite only them. I have modified the core vanilla files so overwrite everything will give lot of problems.

    You have to upload all files of 2.0.18.13 but not the conf folder.

    And you go on

    @K17: There is no need to change config-default.php, every setting should be made in config.php and so the conf folder should be no harm to a "customized" installation.

    @menu2: look at that page https://github.com/vanilla/vanilla/compare/2.0
    At the bottom of the page there are the commits that have been made between those two versions. You can also simply download the version and do a file diff - that's what I would do...

    Yes, it's true.

    but the config-default is not needed when upgrade.
    -1 file in transfert :)

    I beg to differ with you.

    config-defaults.php - should not be modified by the user as R_J indicated. And when changing config options you should change config.php.

    However, config-defaults.php is indeed different between vanilla 2.1 and 2.0

    and config-defaults.php is read by bootstrap.php

    https://github.com/vanilla/vanilla/blob/2.1/bootstrap.php#L47

    @K17, So, I think it is not a good policy to tell people not to copy certain folders. Maybe from 2.0.18.12 to to 2.0.18.13 they might be the same, but it sets a precedent that people might assume is true for the next version.

    You really shouldn't pick and choose which folders to install when upgrading. Even the readme is changed between versions.

    So, the best method when doing install and upgrade is to copy ALL the files from the zip, if your goal is a trouble-free installation that is up to date.

    I just re-read the above OP post - which stated what can I avoid copying, so my argument is not very good here,
    so no harm, no foul @K17 (you were just answering the question, which I did not read on the first go around).

    But, the opening post, indicates why a user shouldn't modify core files, because it creates issues, and the upgrade to 2.1 might not be so easy, if you are going to try to selectively copy files.

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.
