It should be easy, and pretty straight forward if you are currently on 2.0.15.
Only thing is, you will lose your modifications, and your installed custom themes may not work anymore. So make backups of everything (database included) before you try, in case you want to go back for some reason.

ok so its best to duplicate the entire forum before trying to upgrade. gotcha


Please, do mind that SMF 2.1 is still under development, we do not recomment using it in production sites because you may encounter errors or bugs.
