Title: 2.0 Beta 4 --> 2.0 RC1 - Small Upgrade Package
Post by: KahneFan on February 05, 2009, 01:19:37 AM
I have to ask: Beta 4 --> RC1, is the "small update" just a package? Can I install it with the package manager or... ?

If you have mods... Which I think you do... I would use the large upgrade package via ftp :)

Should I uninstall the mods and return to the default theme before performing the upgrade?

(Not delete, just uninstall)

The large upgrade should deal with the mods :)

They are not patches. You cant do them via admin. Also I personally would uninstall all mods before running the upgrade.

ETA: Oh and I'd delete them after uninstalling myself.

I have never had a issue with a large upgrade package not dealing with mods..... What point are you at now?

The package says " Large upgrade
    Using modifications, or not using SMF 2.0 Beta 4.x? No problem, this is what you need."

You are correct. And I tried it on a forum with a few mods, but not SimplePortal and I think that's what's thrown a kink in the system.

I might advise to other to (at least) uninstall mods before upgrading, then reinstalling upon completion.
