Upgrading with the Changed Files Only Package

The changed files only package is generally the most straightforward and reliable method of upgrading your board. To download it, choose the file you wish to download (on Windows, the safest bet is the .zip file; on UNIX or Linux, either the gzip or bz2 compressed files will do) by clicking its icon. Download the file to a safe place, and then open it. Figure 10-4 illustrates what the changed files only package contains at the point of the latest release at the time of this writing.

The changed files only package contains the following:

• cache: A directory that exists as part of an optional file-based template-caching system. (I will discuss the template-caching systems available in the "Using Template Caching" section, later in the chapter.)

• contrib: A directory that contains the template-caching implementations and a database diagnostic tool.

• docs: A directory that contains late-breaking documentation and release notes for the updated version of phpBB you are about to install.

• install: A directory that contains the necessary upgrade scripts to complete the process of updating your board to the new version.

• 2.0.x_to_2.0.y.zip/.tar.gz: A series of compressed files containing all the changed files from version 2.0.x (where x is the older revision of phpBB) to the newer version (represented as 2.0.y), which is phpBB 2.0.17 at the time of this writing.
