How can I upgrade phpBB?
We all know that upgrading phpBB using fantastico is a nightmare...
So here is a quick notice to let people know a really easy way to update from a previous version of phpBB to the latest version, in a few easy steps...
1. Download EasyMOD - http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=136984
2. Follow the instructions to install this addon to your version of phpBB
3. Find out which version of phpBB you are currently running, and then download the "Code Changes" for the next version up from here: http://www.phpbb.com/downloads.php
4. Extract the files and upload them to the EasyMOD directory as the EasyMOD instructions state.
5. Login to EasyMOD and process the MOD, follow the instructions INCLUDING any manual instructions.
Once complete, the upgrade should be complete!
I hope this helps some of you out there who are having issues with this.
