Be sure and Read the Quick Start Guide included with the Y2.5AE Installation package, especially Upgrading from YaBB 2.x
 and maybe this board on the YaBB Codex - http://www.yabbforum.com/codex/YaBB.pl?board=upgrade

Note: One of the problems with upgrading a forum as large as yours is "getting" all the files in your Members & Messages folders.  Some Hosts restrict viewing of the number of files via FTP, so tagging to transfer is limited.  The Best way to recover ALL of these files is by using the Host Server panels Backup to get these important folders.  Then download and transfer from your personal pc backup to the New forums folders.

Query on Upgrading from YaBB 2.1 to 2.5 AE

Hi,

I'm looking to upgrade our existing YaBB forum (Version 2.1) to 2.5 AE but just wanted to check first.

Are there any known issues in doing an upgrade directly from 2.1 to 2.5 AE ?

I run a fairly large forum (Currently has 22,000 registered users) and are trying to reduce the chance of problems before going ahead with the upgrade.

Thanks in advance,

Daniel
