It has been awhile since I stopped by. YAF has been working brilliantly. My installation is a bit old and I can see there is a bunch of cool new stuff...

I would like to upgrade it...

Where should I start. I want to preserve my user base and their posts, the board is important to the community...

I appreciate any help I can get!

Cheers


Best Regards,

Download, backup your files and DB, ENSURE you are using the correct web.config (there are two to choose from) otherwise your users won't be able to login after the upgrade, run the install. Voila.

When I post FP:Mek in a topic, I'm leaving my footprint there so I can track it once I get into coding/supporting. (Yes I stole this off Ederon 🙂 )

Ok, I figured it out.

If you encounter this you will need to:

assign permissions for the aspnet and the iusr accounts to your windows/temp folder...

:-d

Any advice?

Did you change your config to the normal one after this?

Eh?

So I just use the recommended for the upgrade and then change it to the normal config?

Ok, I will give it a try...
