Version 3.0.12 is now released. This is based on the 2.11.x version and is available for download now. It is recommended to upgrade all previous versions to the new standard.
Ensure that you make a backup of your database and config/config.php file
before upgrading, also backup any language files you may have altered/customized.
When upgrading from 3.0.6 upwards you should make a backup of your current
config/config.php file, upload the latest version from downloaded
file/lists to your web space /lists, then copy back your saved
config.php file. Please Note: The config.php file supplied is a “quick
Start” file and is ideal for new or less confident users, whilst the
config-extended.php file has all the options available, but will take
longer to set up and is for more advanced users. To use the extended
file does require renaming to and replacing config.php
When upgrading from Version 2, you MUST use one of the new config.php files due to the number of changes in the config.php file.
The default message editor needs enabling before it appears, to do so:-
Login to your admin pages, hover over Config>click Plugins and then click
the thumb down icon alongside fckeditor to enable the editor.
Note also that since PHP 5.5, MySQL is being degraded so if you get an error
along the lines of MySQL or MySQLi not being present, the solution is to change your config/config.php file from `$database_module = “mysql.inc”; to $database_module = “mysqli.inc”;
Your server still needs MySQL version 5.0 or higher and PHP should be version 5.3.x or Higher. System Requirements.
