Quick question about RC3 database?

One of the forums I'm connected with is actually using RC3 on its live site and, because of bugs and glitches, we're about to do an overwrite of the files initially downloaded from the SMF site with the latest Github files.  I wanted to ask... has the database changed at all, during the fixes, since RC3's initial release? 

If so, can you steer me toward what those changes were?

Thanks!   :)

You can look at all the DB changes since the RC3 release by looking at commits against upgrade_2-1_mysql.sql since the date of the release:
https://github.com/SimpleMachines/SMF2.1/commits/release-2.1/other/upgrade_2-1_mysql.sql

Note that the release was on Oct 15, 2020.  You can look this up on the releases page:
https://github.com/SimpleMachines/SMF2.1/releases

The above helps if you want to make the changes by hand.

Of course, you can always rerun the upgrader.  The SMF upgrader has always been intended to be rerun in case you somehow are missing some updates.

Either way, make sure you back everything up first!!!

Thanks, shawnb61!  That's exactly what we needed to know, I appreciate the links.  :)

Just an FYI, I have found that some of the mods here will work on the SMF2.1RC3 download from this site but will not work on the RC3 downloaded from github.

Wow, thanks for the heads up, Shades.  I have the Github files on my test sites and have even made some mods work with it that I hadn't expected to (like Ultimate Profile) but with manual edits.  I've gotten a couple of mods to install on the download from this site, but they throw errors, especially Pretty URLs.  I'm hoping the file overwrite (and adding back any mod edits) will sort those.   :)
