I just successfully updated to 7.1.1 with no problems. But I noticed a couple of items in the upgrade documentation that might use some cleaning up.

In Preparing the Files, step 5 says to upload ALL the files except for a list of items not to upload. That is followed by a list of specific directories, subdirectores and files to upload. There are a cache and a gallery directory in the unzipped directory. Those directories are not included in the list of specific directories to upload, nor are they included in the list of items not to upload. So it is not clear if they should be uploaded or not. I uploaded them. Things seem to be working so I expect they should have been in the list of "Upload these" items.

Maybe I misread the upgrade docs.

So far I am happy with the upgrade.

There is no need to "upload" the /cache and /gallery directories, as you would already have them on your current functional install.

The install zip archive includes these for the purpose of a doing a new/initial installation.


NOTES:
Link to the upgrade documentation you're referring to:
https://www.ubbcentral.com/doc_upgrade7.php

* The "Upload these" section are the functional program script directories.
* The "Do not upload these" section are your own forum custom configuration directories.
* Everything else not mentioned are either your forum's /cache or /upload (attachments/gallery) directories.
