Reverting from 2.5AE to 2.4: How To?

I would like to downgrade my forum from 2.5AE back to 2.4 (which is my previous version of YABB).  I know this forum is for upgrading, but I couldn't find the appropriate forum for downgrading Smiley

Thanks in advance for any help in this matter.

LOL - I'm with you, I liked 2.4 just fine (I have 3 of them)  Smiley

Downgrades, upgrades whatever right place to ask -  (MOST downgrades will not work period)

BUT - AFAIK - the data files are identical between 2.4 and 2.5AE

SO the answer would be to backup/download your data FIRST!

Install YABB 2.4 clean

Make sure it works 1st.

Upload/restore your data files ONLY.

Treat it just like a 'Server Move'.

Good Luck

I find your lack of faith disturbing.
