How to update mybb??
Make sure to create a database backup, file backup, and disable all plugins before updating.

1. Download MyBB 1.8.X here. Extract them from the ZIP folder. You will only need the Upload folder.

2. Select all files and folders from the Upload folder and upload them to your MyBB root directory. Those files must overwrite any existent ones!

3. Once the upload is complete, open your MyBB forums and then add in front of the URL: /install

Example :

4. Choose the option Upgrade to MyBB 1.8.X and select your previous version.

Finally once everything is done delete the install directory from your MyBB root.
