I should do some renaming in Admin center first.

Yes ... Path Settings

simply delete the yabb2 folder (after saving a backup) then rename the yabb25 folder to yabb2

Thanks an lot! I've got my messages, boards and most everything back to normal! Whew!

One question:
My old board was in directory yabb2 and the restored version is in yabb25. I'd like to remove the old directory and renew yabb25 -> yabb2 so my web pages point to the working version.

What should I do? Just do a rename in FTP program won't do as I suspect I should do some renaming in Admin center first.

Is there an easy way ie. copy a bunch of files and do some maintenance?

the fastest and easiest way is using FTP.

  Boards/Messages/Members and "some" files in the Variables folders.

Note: if members vars files are zero'd they either have to be rebuilt manually or replaced with backups.  See the Codex.

In the Codex is this list of files to backup

http://www.yabbforum.com/codex/YaBB.pl?board=backup

that's ALSO the list of files you need to upgrade/move a server

"I think" it would actaully be best to reinstall your correct version and do the file maintenance BEFORE upgrading. lets see what the Captain thinks.

THEN follow the instructions for upgrading.

JMHO

Good Luck!

REALLY GOOD NEWS - Yabb 2.4+ have YaBB backups built in to  the Admin Center.  Wink
  

I find your lack of faith disturbing.

The *nix server crashed. Some files were replaced by zero files.

I have set a new yabb 2.5 version in a different directory. I'd like to copy the memberlist, board list and posts to the new Yabb 2.5. I am not sure what my old version was but probably 2.2.

Is there an easy way ie. copy a bunch of files and do some maintenance?
