How to Update Agora Forum

In order to upgrade from Agora 3.0.x Stable to a newer Agora 3.0.x Stable version the installer will automatically migrate the database and replace all files. There is no need to uninstall or delete anything.

Warning for Agora Admins: If you have created customized files, including changes to layouts, these will be replaced.
