7.ii. Changed files only
This package contains a number of archives, each contains the files changed from a given release to 2.0.11. You should select the appropriate archive for your current version, e.g. if you currently have 2.0.10 you should select the phpBB-2.0.10_to_2.0.11.zip/tar.gz file.

The directory structure has been preserved enabling you (if you wish) to simply upload the contents of the archive to the appropriate location on your server, i.e. simply overwrite the existing files with the new versions. Do not forget that if you have installed any Mods these files will overwrite the originals possibly destroying them in the process. You will need to re-add Mods to any affected file before uploading.

As for the other upgrade procedures you should run install/update_to_210.php after you have finished updating the files. This will update your database schema and data (if appropriate) and increment the version number.

Once you have succssfully installed phpBB 2.0.11 you MUST ensure you remove the entire install/ and contrib/ directories. Leaving these in place is a very serious potential security issue which may lead to deletion or alteration of files, etc. Please note that until these directories are remove phpBB2 will not operate and a warning message will be displayed. Beyond these essential deletions you may also wish to delete the docs/ directories if you wish.

With these directories deleted you should proceed to the administration panel. Depending on how the installation completed you may have been directed there automatically. If not, login as the administrator you specified during install/upgrade and click the "Administration Panel" link at the bottom of any page. Ensure that details specified in General -> Configuration are correct!

in order to do a clean backup, i'm deleting the entire smiley collection and refurbishing the avatar listings.

BTW, since i have access you can always request to have your own avatar uploaded to the site...list your email address and i'll contact you. Remember, linking to offsite avatars is allowed.

If you notice your avatar suddenly disappeared, please go into your profile and find the avatar section - look for "reserved" and you'll find it there.

during the updating process i'll be deleting all avatar/smiley/rank folders temporarily

oh yeah, and i've disabled everyone's personalized format for forum style

also disabled all avatars

I've completed an exhaustive prune of the forums here. removing only those threads that have absolutely no redeeming value. (the "hi" , "weather", "bye" and "link to deadspace, no explanation")
    i've repaired some links, but have yet to complete the transition from www.mindphyre.com to razorskiss' for most of the links...except, of course, the FAQ section which is fully repaired
i'm awaiting word from MadCat who's hopefully going to optimize the sql database using mysqladmin...that should solve the server side problems we've been having attempting to fully backup the database before this upgrade to phpBB 2.0.11

it didn't go as well as planned, but with help from our angel in the wings we're now upgraded fully.

for the story about what went down:
