    Thumbs up phpBB upgrade option from 3.01 to 3.06

    Hi all,

    In the IC options, I see that we can now upgrade the phpBB from V3.01 to V3.06.

    It the update screen, it is advised to make backups of the "data files", which of course is quite understandable. However, which files are these?

    I would assume, that the update script would only update the board's software and not the user profile data or the forum posts database.

    Hence, I'd be making backups to recover from "disaster", which is always a good plan - of course. But I'm not a phpBB specialist, by far, so I'd really appreciate any guidance you could provide me.

    Make a copy of all forum files and the database. In the interests of security, I suggest you check for and update through the phpBB admin panel regularly as IC is a bit slow in offering latest versions/upgrades.
