This file contains all the changes you must make to upgrade your forums to 2.2.2 from 2.2.1. I have used this on my forums and it has worked successfully. Unfortunately we will unable to provide support for this, if you are getting errors then you may have applied the change in the wrong place.

Make sure you backup your files and database before doing this.

Once you have changed all the files you must upload them plus the new vBulletin.style upgrade15.php and some other files which were changed too extensively to justify a list of all the changes.

Scott,

First, a big major thanks for all your efforts! Did a great job on this document!

Second, does this mean we'd only have to change these .php files and leave all others untouched? For example: you don't say anything about member.php, does this mean I can just leave the 2.2.1 version of this file?

correct
if its not mentioned it doesn't need to be modified, as this release was mainly a bug fix not every file was edited.

I also had someone emailing me asking if Jelsoft allowed this, John had no quams with me posting this here.

I noticed if you have the contract/expand hack installed and the community bulletin hack, some of this code makes it unusable.

I upgraded my test board and noticed some interesting things. Hacks that were inserted into the default templates were mostly moved to custom templates. This happened to vBStats and everything was fine. Some of the Contract Posts templates were blown away. I made new custom templates for modifyoptions_hideposts_ie and showthread_hideposts and everything was back to normal. I'm glad I'm testing everything on the test board first.

You can only lose templates IF you put them into your database with a templateset id of -1. You should never use templateset -1 as those are the base templates and they are removed and replaced with every upgrade.
