Is this the right way to do it? 10 Years ago  
I have tried to update from 1.0.0 to 1.0.3 and it didn´t work out well. I had to do a clean new installation. Now it works fine after deleting the old version and databases.

Now i have one more forum that i´m going to update from 1.0.1 to 1.0.3 and i don´t want to miss all old threads. I just want to ask if i have understand the right way to do this:

* use my ftp to owerwrite the files that are in the \"patch_to_Fireboard_Forum_1.0.3.zip\". There are 2 arcives in there, administrator and components. Does it mean all content, even the _fbfiles?

* Then i shall copy \"components/com_fireboard/_fbfiles\" directory in the extracted package to \"Joomla_Root/images\" directory and rename it to \"fbfiles. Is it the samt file as above with the name _fbfles_dist?

* Next step is to remove old directories and content in \"components/com_fireboards/avatars\",\"components/com_fireboards/images\", \"components/com_fireboards/uploaded/files\", \"components/com_fireboards/uploaded/images\" to the new \"Joomla_Root/images/fbfiles\".

* Then i execute the queries inside phpmyadmin. I open \"Upgrades/Fireboard_101_to_1.0.3.Stable.sql\", paste the text in the file in the input area in sql and click go.

* After i have checked that i have the latset version i have to enter the control panel and clck on \"Recount Categories Stats\"

Is this the right way, or have i missunderstod anything????
