Best way to install BBpress 2.1 beta ?

    I’d like to install bbpress 2.1 RC2, but I currently have bbpress 2.0.3 running on my site.

    What is the best way to install the beta version without breaking anything ? Upload the zip file via “add plugin” in WordPress admin panel ? Overwrite the old bbpress files via FTP ? Uninstall 2.0.3 then install 2.1 RC2 ? Other solution ?

    The easiest way is with using FTP.

    -Download the RC package and unpack it locally.

    -Delete the content of the /wp-content/plugins/bbpress/ folder.

    -Upload the files into the /bbpress/ folder.

    A regular upgrade does this automatically (or very similarly), so it shouldn’t break anything.

    If all the files have been updated, you’ll be able to see in the Dashboard that you’re got the new version.

    Please backup your database and remember to disable the plugin before removing and replacing the files. (Although I never do this, it is good practice…)

    Thank you for your reply, however I noticed that 2.1 has now been released, therefore I won’t need to install a RC package.

    Thanks !
