Updating from 1.3 to 1.4?

1. Do backup of all files and database.
2. Download latest version of PunBB (1.4.2)
3. Replace all files from version 1.4.2 with your current (1.3.X)
4. Run admin/db_update.php file in your browser.
Example if your forum URL is http://test.com you should go to:
http://test.com/admin/db_update.php
5. Just click "Start update" (or anything like this).
6. That's it!
