Upgrading UBB.threads 7
The upgrade path from UBB.threads version 7.5.6 continues to be to move to the most recent version of UBB.threads as they become available, such as 7.5.6 -> 7.7.5. There is no need to do an incremental update from 7.5.6 to 7.6.0 to 7.7.0 to 7.7.5...etc. You should update directly, to the most recent version of UBB.threads. This procedure is compatible with any version greater or equal to 7.5.6. For an older version, ask for help on the Community Support Forums
Please do check UBB.threads current Requirements
. Especially if your PHP/MySQL configuration is NOT sufficient, do not go further as the upgrade process will fail.
For routine incremental upgrades, refer to the UBB.threads 7 Upgrade Guide
for directions on how to proceed.
If you are upgrading from a version older than the last version, review any special instructions listed within the Upgrade Instructions (install/UPGRADE_INSTRUCTIONS.txt), from each version just above the version you are coming from. Normally there are no special instructions, or they may explain a new feature for you to configure.Special Upgrade Instructions for 7.7.5
