Upgrade to language files
« on: October 09, 2019, 01:18:53 PM »
I must be missing something. I was told that I should upgrade my 1.1 Language files which I just did. I downloaded "smf_2-0-15_english.zip" then uploaded it to my public_html where my forum is located. I followed the instructions:
"Just extract them into the same directory as the installation of SMF". Then checked "Detailed Version Check" on my forum and it shows that I still have version 1.1 language files (see below). What did I miss?

Click on Language Files, what does it say?
Don’t try to tell me that some power can corrupt a person. You haven’t had enough to know what it’s like.

Unzip the file, upload it to forum root.  Or you can just upload the language files from /Themes/default/languages/ to same directory in your forum install.

Am I wrong to say that all the files are updated to latest version Except the last one "PersonalMessage.englishBACKUP.php"? Can it be deleted? Not sure where it came from.

You’re right and it can be deleted.
Don’t try to tell me that some power can corrupt a person. You haven’t had enough to know what it’s like.
