Upgrade procedure from IPS4.x to IPS4.x?

Hello,

do we have a thread or document where the correct upgrade procedure from one IPS4 to the next is explained in a detailed way?

Today we had a bug upgrading from 4.0.1 to 4.0.2 because we've overwritten a directory by mistake. All threads I've found are for upgrades between v3 or v3 to v4 but none for v4 to v4.

We just want to have a description which directories and files we have to leave on the server.

Thanks in advance.

basically same as earlier versions

unzip your download and 'drill' down until find folder with admin, applications and all other files and folders there

then just upload everything into your forum root folder (should see the conf_global.php file as well as all the folders)

make sure that you overwrite all the old files

If using cPanel then what I do is (might want to make a backup of forum and database first):

unzip your download and 'drill' down until find folder with admin, applications and all other files and folders there

then create a zip file with all those folders and files (except conf_global.dist.php ... not needed if upgrading)

then via cPanel go to your forum root folder (should see the conf_global.php file as well as all the folders)

upload your zipped file to there

then using cPanel unzip making sure that it overwrites original files

then in your browser go to your forum_url/admin/upgrade

follow instructions
