I use Linux for everything by the way, but I don't suppose that's relevant.

Well I downloaded the 2.5AE upgrade zip file and extracted it into local directories then used FileZilla (ftp client) to replace the files in the respective directories.  Now, I didn't delete any files that were in there and made sure that the new files had the right permissions.  I left the pl files and the templates until last, then while the forum was in maintenance mode, I replaced those too. On restoring the forum, I found that it was still reporting as 2.4, so I went back to Maintenance mode then deleted each file and uploaded the 2.5AE files in their place.

Incidentally, I see that two others have had the same problem, but the frustrating thing is that they didn't explain how they managed to resolve it:

Why don't you describe 'how you did the upgrade'.  That might provide a clue.

I have to work on a project, but I'll check later tonight if you don't have a solution already.

Good Luck
Cool
  

I find your lack of faith disturbing.

Upgraded from 2.4 to 2.5AE but still shows as 2.4

I recently did a manual upgrade of Yabb 2.4 to Yabb 2.5AE on our Board and have a strange issue. The forum is fully functional, however it still reports as 2.4, and a detailed version check shows this:

YaBB Package      YaBB 2.4
YaBB.pl      YaBB 2.4 Build 1.22
AdminIndex.pl      YaBB 2.4 Build 1.27

All other files show Yabb 2.5AE. This is despite the fact that I deleted and replaced those files twice, and the file size changed to indicate that the new file had uploaded.  The Forum was placed on Maintainance during that time.

Files in Admin Dir:
Admin.pl      YaBB 2.5 AE Build 1.82
AdminEdit.pl      YaBB 2.5 AE Build 1.38
AdminSubList.pl      YaBB 2.5 AE Build 1.21
