Topic: PwnBB 1.0.0

Why doesn't the readme file state anything about saving any old files from the old forum directories?

If you do what you've always done, you'll get what you've always gotten.

You should always do backups before making any change. What have you lost?

Re: PwnBB 1.0.0

Moved to Modifications
Because it's a premodded version of PunBB, it's not meant to be "installed" afaik

And what Strofanto said

http://fluxbb.org

Free PunBB Hosting - lots of mods, easy to customize

Re: PwnBB 1.0.0

Sorry Smartys for posting my questions all in troubleshooting all the time.
I didn't loose anything Strofanto.
And how so not installed? Well, I meant upload it!

1.UPLOAD

./upload/*.* to ./

Upload everything to the directory, nah?

Yes, that's exactly what you have to do.

Re: PwnBB 1.0.0

Well then all files will be replaced with "new" and empty ones! What happens to my DB?

New for sure, why empty?

Unless you drop it, nothing. It won't probably work perfectly since you're using a modded version. But no data will be lost.

Re: PwnBB 1.0.0

I meant empty from my data!

And ah! So a modded version means that it doesn't include the files that shouldn't be replaced, such as admin, users, and stuff?

I still don't get it, sorry.

No, they will be replaced, but the forums posts, registered users and so on are stored in the database which is not a file in your forum's root. You can access your database with PHP scripts or PHPmyAdmin but not directly from the FTP.

Now this answers my question !
I thought that by deleting the old forum and uploading brand new files and stuff, all my DB will be lost. Doh! I am wrong.
Thanks for your time. I'll go forward with that.
