Ok this is how I would like to see upgrades happen from now on and will post on the main site as well..

1) Make Back of DB and change the name of the forum folder to something like forum_backup take special note of any modifications they had before

2) copy ALL new files including the ones in the post http://www.fusionbb.com/forum/showtopic.... to the new site under the old forum directory since that way any remenants will not be there

3) copy the old forums config directory into the new forums config directory

4) copy the old forums language files into the new forums /language/XXX directory

5) take one of the new skins doesn't matter which copy it to a new skin call it yoursite and beyond compare that skin to the one they used prior for any differences and update the new skin with the old skins VALUES so they will be in the new skins format.. then copy that new skin into the new forums skin directory

change file permissions to 666 and directories to 777

7) perform update

redo any modifications that need to be done (some wont since they are now features)

if done this way then at the end you should have an old forum you can go back to..

OK we also found an issue with images.. if you have too many in a single directory the scripts time out.. this is addressed in new installs by using a fbbupload and a gallery directory where in gallery its split into users.. the issue pops up on image sites of 400,000 images or more.. the more images, the more time it takes for the scripts to work.. On older installs this means we need a way to get the images into the new directories.. this is all hind site because in reality it should have been thought that having that many files in a single directoy was a bad idea..

Ok, just followed the steps above, I go to install.php and it's asking me as if I'm doing a fresh install? Shouldn't this take me direct to an upgrade script?
