Upgrading to a newer version of FluxBB is easy. All you have to do is follow these simple instructions:

  1. Replace the files on your server with the new ones. Don't forget to keep files like avatars and custom styles on the server.
  2. Update the database, if necessary. If so, you will automatically see a message reminding you to run the upgrade script when visiting the forums.
  3. Done already!

Before attempting an upgrade always remember to make a backup of both the database and files!

Note: Manually upgrading between major versions is not recommended due to the large number of changes required.
