Raven, I would like to install your bundle. Since both sites are up and running, would I have to delete everything to do a virgin install? Also, I am using 6.5, NC bundle. I suppose, I could repopulate my db with the stuff I want to save (like all the members, lol). Awaiting your advice, cyberfriend, Steve Very Happy

I do not support the nc bundle, nor do I know what they may have modified in any tables. This is based on a standard 6.5 to 7.0 upgrade. The way I recommend is to

- install my custom database somewhere
- clone your 6.5 database
- run the individual upgrade scripts from FB to bring your database up to 7.0
- backup your clone so that you don't have to go through these steps again in the event of a problem.
- compare tables between the 2 databases (clone and mine) and export any table that is in my custom and not in your clone and import it into your clone.
- export my blocks and modules tables and import them into yours, erasing yours.
- ftp the custom files to your clone site

That should give you the basis for starting while preserving your current tables, except for blocks and modules. Then start adding the customizations to the new site. As you go throught this, please keep track of what you had to do so that we can present a guide to the upgrade.
