Special Note: The importers to the new product (UBB.Threads7) requires that you run the latest build of your originating product (in this case, UBB.threads 6.5.x).

The Import
The proper upgrade route is as follows:
1. Download UBB.threads 7.x (full install file) AND the UBB.threads 6.5.x importer and extract them to your hard disk.
2. Install UBB.threads 7.x in a NEW directory (UBB.Threads7 is a completely different product than UBB.threads 6.x, thus, it is not a simple "update new files and run upgrade.php" upgrade).
3. Go through the new install procedure (yourforums.tld/forums/install/install.php) until you reach the "create admin user" screen then click on the "create tables" link (do NOT click on the "create admin user" link).
4. Run the UBB.threads 6.5 to UBB.threads 7.0 importer.
5. Import Complete.

Re-Using your old location
If you want to re-use your old directory, simply delete (or rename) your old forum directory, and then rename the directory which houses UBB.threads 7.x; any updates to paths will need to be made to the config.inc.php file in the UBB.Threads7 includes directory.

Redirecting to the new software
Now, if you want to redirect all requests from the old directory, do the following:
1. Open the redirector files which came with the importer and edit the line that points to your install directory and set the url accordingly.
2. Upload the files to your OLD install directory.

It should be perfectly safe to upload these files into your UBB.Threads7 install directory (if you opted to use the old install directory in section 2) as UBB.Threads7 does not use these file names.

Conclusion
Now any requests that go to your old forum location/files should be redirected to your UBB7 install.

NOTE
Please be sure to delete the install/ directory from your forum directory after your installation as you don't need other people trying to run it as a fresh install. You should do this after any fresh install or upgrade.

For reference, here is the complete Install Manual found in the Documentation section. See also any readme files included within the Threads' .zip files.

In addition, after installation, you should "delete the install/ directory from the server [or at least delete the files within it]. Leaving those files on the server could cause problems at a later time."
