Upgrading to RC5
The information in this topic is destined to people who is already using previous versions of JForum. You don't need to follow these steps if this is your first time with JForum

:arrow: Backup your current database, for safety;

:arrow: Run the SQL script called mysql_rc4_to_rc5.sql, ir you're using MySQL, or postgresql_rc4_to_rc5.sql ir you're using PostgreSQL,located in the root directory. This script will correct the tables.

:arrow: See https://coderanch.com/t/574339 #permissions . We added some new permission control options, so you should re-save your existing ones again. This was a mistake when releasing RC5.

You must run these upgrade script, otherwise your jforum installation will not work correctly, since some tables have changed since RC4.

Depending the latest version you have ( for example, rc2, rc3 etc ), you may also want to take a look at https://coderanch.com/t/574427 or https://coderanch.com/t/574531 before running the instructions here described.

Hi,

take a look here: https://coderanch.com/t/574531

You will need to download RC4 in order to get the scripts ( you don't need to install rc4.. just get it to have the sql scripts ).
