Please keep in mind these sites have been offline for about 3 years and just recently restored from a backup although I did keep them updated when notices went to my admin panel before they went down

I have 2 sites I believe I need to update to the current 2.0.15 release but I haven't done this from scratch in about 10 years so I'm real rusty I do know to download the latest large 2.0.15 upgrade which I have. This is what is showing for the sites for packages installed and the info I see on the right in admin for current forum Version

Site 1

Version Information:
Forum version: SMF 1.1.21
Current SMF version: ??
(more detailed)

packages installed at least the most recent I see in the list

SMF 1.1.21 / 2.0.10 Update

Site 2

Version Information:
Forum version: SMF 1.1.21
Current SMF version: ??
(more detailed)

SMF 1.1.21 / 2.0.10 Update

I have the sites live as of today but didn't want to screw them up by doing something I haven't done in so long.

I don't have a problem updating the files in folders through ftp for folders I have stuff in I don't want to lose like attachments and avatars with an overwrite.
