I would like to do this like this week on a live server.
Now I'm a little bit afraid, that 1.2.3. version is running fine for some time.
Is upgrading from 1.2.3 to 1.3.8a as easy as updating like vBulletin 2.x to 3.x or do I have to do a lot manually?
Is there a good manual included on how to upgrade?
Is it even possible to upgrade from 1.2.3 to 1.3.8a at once via an upgrade script or do I have to do things manually step by step, version by version (ergo: a lot of work, not alike with vBulletin for example).
I can read and understand English, but I'm Dutch and I don't know a lot about php so if there is a good manual on how to upgrade I hope it's a noob like me can do it to (i'm used upgrading and installing vBulletin, that's for a reference of my knowledge).
So I really would like some of this information before I start with things. I understand ofcourse that I need to backup the database and files first.
Any kind of help and advise for the things mentioned above is welcome.
