None of the files for 1.1.x will work with 2.0, so how would any custom edits interfere?switch to default themeCopy all 2.0 files, overwriting your current files.run upgrade.php
Quote from: Kindred on October 04, 2010, 08:50:23 PMno... there are relationships between tables...it sounds like some of your file permissions are stopping the overwrite of the new 2.0 files.So, what I suggestDelete all files in the Sources directoryDelete all files and subdirectories in the Themes/default subdirectorydelete index.php in the root.NOW upload the files in the large upgrade archive.leftover mods in the database should have no effect until the are re-installed
