OK, you got me curious enough - I'll probably have to test that out. I do have multiple PHP versions available on my VPS. :P

Just to say that the first part of the upgrade to 2.0.1 went like a charm.
No problems at all.
Will give the test site a few days and if everything is ok, I'll bring the test site up to 2.0.15

If that's ok, I'll then fetch the main site up to date.
Many thanks for all the advice guys.

Should be no problem upgrading 2.0.1 -> 2.0.15, just have to upgrade php version first (I run everything in 5.6).  Forum is running normally, there are no additional db changes.  Make sure you get current versions when you reinstall mods.

And preferably update the forum first, and only after that start installing mods. Will be a lot less messy than the other way around :)

Just to report.... Main forum now running 2.0.15
Can't believe how easy that was.

Sir Osis..... you're instructions were spot on  :)
Thank you.

Now to look at installing the mods.
