Yes, i upgraded 2 of them :)

I just removed 3.x-Styles and delete all directories except uploads and downloads.

I have several directories

  • admin
  • cache
  • ccs_files
  • cgi-bin
  • downloads
  • hooks
  • image
  • interface
  • ips_kernel
  • lofiversion
  • public
  • retail
  • screenshots
  • uploads

I undestand that all that I've marked in red must be deleted and the green one you indicate must NOT be deleted...

 

But, what about the blue ones???

 

Thanks for your help!

​admin, cache and public can be deleted. Not too sure about screenshots but I'd assume it also can be deleted.

Screenshots is not and have never (to my knowledge) been a folder created by IPS. The same is true for folders retail and image I think.

It's likely a folder you've created at some point. You'll basically need to review the contents of these custom folders and decide whether the contents of them is something you still want to have accessible or not.

The advise from IPS on doing a "clean" upgrade to 4.0 have been to not delete the public-folder. As it contains some image files that needs to be present (more specifically in folders style_images and style_emoticons)

​"screenshots" is an IP.Downloads folder, where file screenshots are stored by default. It should be retained, in this instance. "retail" is an older IPB 3.0 or 2.3 folder which is no longer needed.
