Updating from phpBB 3.1.x to 3.2.x

Updating from phpBB 3.0.x/3.1x to phpBB 3.2.x
Updating from phpBB 3.0.x or 3.1.x to 3.2.x is just the same as updating from stable releases of phpBB 3.2.x

However you can also start with a new set of phpBB 3.2.x files.

Delete all files EXCEPT for the following:
The config.php file
The images/ directory
The files/ directory
The store/ directory (depend i don't add this)
The ext/ directory (don't forget this too - never delete)
Upload the contents of the 3.2.x Full Package into your forum's directory. Make sure the root level .htaccess file is included in the upload.
Browse to /install/app.php/update
Read the notice Update database only and press Submit
Delete the install/ directory


You can simply Download the updates only which is the zip files contains vendor folder files and the Install files. After finished uploading run http://example.com/install > update > database and board > download the archived files > upload to your hosting directory > continue press > then all done

If you encounter any issues after the update..please comment below!
