This is a little different - you can consider this as a larger release because of the number of bugs it fixes and the number of files changed. You can get away with uploading the files from the list of changed files in the announcement. If you've modified those then use a program like "KDiff" to compare them to your modified ones and merge them.

OK, but to apply these upgraded files as specified in your previous post, can I just upload/replace the backed up existing ones or will I also be required to run any upgrade scripts for the database as well?  If so, will I need to upload the new install directory after extracting it from 1.2.1 too?  Or, by upgrading these files, will no scripts need to be run?

Hello Chris, will I need to run any upgrade scripts if just copying the new altered files into 1.2? I haven't started yet until I'm sure what to do...

Yes, you need to.

Back up your themes, in case the upgrading fails.

OK, so literally, FTP in all the altered files and the install directory/subdirectories from the 1.2.1 ZIP and then run the upgrade.php? Job done - all should work OK like this instead of applying all the files bar config and settings as suggested?

Some sort..yes, you download the whole package of 1.2.1 and overwrite everything except config.php, settings.php.
#75
Yay! Fully upgraded and all went sweetly - cracking upgrade that's fixed quite a few noticable bits in 1.2. Nice one and thank you for all the support..

Copy your config.php and settings.php into the new directory and upgrade. However why would you want that? Don't you wanna upgrade the current board? As it would be the same as upgrading it in another directory. If you don't make an new database with the data though.
#78
That would be something to know. How to duplicate the data and put it in a new database, so you can test the upgrade before impacting your main board! That would be very helpful to know!

As PHP/phpmyadmin has an limit (set by host) to how much you may upload at one time this might be painful. You might have to split up the backed up data.
As you need to backup the database then add an new database then import the backed up data.

Well, since I still don't even know exactly how to upload a backup, that might prove difficult anyway! LOL
