there are no database changes you dont need to run upgrade.php.

Really :O
All that time I was not upgrading because of this error message.

That gives more questions:
1. How can I see in my database which version my SMF DB is to be sure?
2. What was the last version where a DB upgrade was necessary?

Kind regards
Alex

the last changes to the database were made i believe around the time 2.0 was released. it may have been before that not sure. no db changes i am aware of since 2.0 was released.

Thank you!
As suggestion: Maybe this can be showed when starting the upgrade.php?

I got another question:
Is there an error in my DB that this error is shown and can I foresee errors in the future?
upgrade.php worked fine (without errors) on my other forum (a small forum).

What is the reason there was no error message and in this large forum there was an error message?
