Congratulations.
Can I update from RC4 to Final or needs to use clean install?

You can do a large upgrade, no patch install available though.

Thank you and congratulations to everyone at SMF!

I upgraded my forum from 2.0 to 2.1 RC4 last October and, today, to 2.1 final. Everything went smoothly by using the "Large Upgrade" package and doing a manual copy of files.

Just a simple question - going forward will future 2.1.x updates also have to be applied in the same way?

Thanks, I have done this without any issues. The easiest upgrade so far.   ;)

No that's just the routine for RC versions. Any future updates should have patches available :)

I've been using that pack on this site for about a year now. :D

From the interactions of 1s and 0s to the interactions of protons and electrons there is a large gap, ;-) but yes 2.1 is a good leap forward.

Great job everyone  ;D

     A couple of people asked about upgrading from SMF 2.1RC4, so this is only a reminder.
Using Release Candidates!
"It is also important to note that between release candidates, SMF does not release update packages."

     This means the Large Upgrade must be used. The Full Install package is not necessary on an existing SMF2.1RCx installation, and will likely delete your "Settings.php" file, so BACK IT UP!!!

Upgrading
"Please note that when using the large upgrade, all the mods that you have installed will have their edits to files removed."

     I had a few themes installed on my smf2.1RC4 installation. After the Large Upgrade, they were gone. Apparently, the Large Upgrade package replaced the "Themes" directory ("Folder"), but that is OK. One of the themes did not work as planned, so I may try to re-install that one to see if I messed up.

     Backing up your files before doing a Large Upgrade will allow you to keep, and then re-apply, any file edits that you made.

 Thoughts that do often lie too deep for tears."

I'm guessing you can't do the easy method of installing via the package manager.

An Error Has Occurred!
Package upload failed due to the following error:
"Although the package was downloaded to the server it appears to be empty. Please check the Packages directory, and the "temp" sub-directory are both writable. If you continue to experience this problem you should try extracting the package on your PC and uploading the extracted files into a subdirectory in your Packages directory and try again. For example, if the package was called shout.tar.gz you should:
1) Download the package to your local PC and extract it into files.
2) Using an FTP client create a new directory in your "Packages" folder, in this example you may call it "shout".
3) Upload all the files from the extracted package to this directory.
4) Go back to the package manager browse page and the package will be automatically found by SMF."

This not a patch so you have to download the large upgrade.

Please read the opening post - this isn't a support topic.

I was wondering how long it would take ...
Please do not PM me for support.
