So how much do you charge for that 15 minutes, UBBSystems?


Won't you take me to Funkytown?

I fail to see your point. What might it be?

Within reason, as long as the mod works with the new version then I will port it up (generally using beyond compare), I don't take the time to sit and test every mod you've ever installed that I have to move over however tongue...

Also, if it will take significantly more time to port them over an additional fee may be requested (mainly if it's going to take longer than an additional half hour or so to compare the contents and move changes over). Most sites that are modded have minor modifications installed which actually don't take as long to move over as you'd think lol..

As long as you make a proper backup of your database and script files there is nothing that can't be undone in case of a failure.
But I don't think you will have much to worry about upgrading within the 7.x series.

It is a nerve racking experience the first time you do it.

Done!

Got a few scary "language files" related messages, but with a cool head we are able to get it sorted.

Took about 30 minutes all told, taking it nice and slow.

Thanks for the help.

Actually, I seem to have one problem.

My main "admin" account - seems to be able to login, but when I click on any forums it "logs me out".... ie goes back to the page as if I am not logged in. And I can't get into control panel.

Luckily other admins seem to be ok and can get into CP.

Any idea what is going on there?

Thanks
