Help for someone new to upgrading Vanilla Forums.
First I apologize for being a bit new to this upgrade process, and please bare with me if this has been discussed before... i searched, and replied to an older thread on this matter, but thought I'd create a new thread... but I'm real nervous upgrading from 188.8.131.52 to 184.108.40.206. I've read the above, and have backed up:
- Create a Backup
Back up your database
Back up your uploads/ folder
Back up your conf/config.php
However, and this may seem like silly clarification to many, but the Vanilla Forums Documentation instruction is to next"
- Update your files
Upload your new version of Vanilla 2
Upload how? Just drop the new files onto the old ones via FTP? Or, is there something I'm missing.
Is this upgrade necessary?
If anyone can assist me with some 'hand holding' help in order to ensure this upgrade goes well, I'd be very grateful. Clearly more detailed instruction on the upload part is what I'm after, as it feels a bit vague to me because I've never upgraded the forum before.
