I'd do the following
apply the file changes
backup database
close board
upload new files including upgradeXX.php and vBulletin.style
restore templates
open board

Thanks for the checklist.
About quoted action, more questions:
- Template Backup System ? And what about new created/modified templates by upgradeXX.php ?
- Should I compare all the new templates with the old ones ?

Thnx

Let me check if understood.
You say if I edit each my 'default template' which was added by any hack (installer or not), to see near it the three links [edit] [revert to original] [view original] instead of the standard two, I'll be sure they'll be moved to 'custom template' section after the upgrade; or at least they will not reverted by the upgrade ....

Is it true ?
Thanks
Still I can't understand how modified (by hacks) templates could stay in 'default' with only [change original] voice.
On my board there are three states of 'default' templates:
1) Custom, identified by [edit] [remove] options
2) Original, identified by [change original] option
3) Original modified, identified by [edit] [revert to original] [view original] options

Well, if case 2, I don't worry if upgrade changes it, of course.
If cases 1 and 3, do you mean they are automatically skipped by the upgrade as they are 'custom' ?
If so, I'll have the upgrade modifications only in the 'original' version of those customized templates, is it true ? How could I compare - via TBS, for example - the original and modified versions to apply by hand the changes ?

Thanks everybody.
Bye

Jawelin they modified the default template, this means that vBulletin thinks that the modification they made to the template comes as standard with the vBulletin install.

When you go to upgrade it replaces the default template set, this is ones that are NOT modified, and as they didn't modify them in the regular way it just overwrites them.

nakkid i used Beyond Compare to do this

no problem

jus to clarify the problem with templates cause i don't think i was too clear.

There is a template set with the id -1 stored in the database, this is the master template set these are not modified in anyway and are stored for use when you create a new template set. These hacks modify this master template set so when vBulletin upgrade rewrites them it overwrites the pieces that the hack inserted in the Master Template Set.

If the hack had inserted them in a normal template set then this wouldn't have been an issue.

no you don't lose any hacks (thats the whole point of this file) , it was just that some hacks that modify the templates directly were causing bother. You should backup your templates if you don't know if you have any of these hacks installed.

I took two days but I'm slow... everyone knows...

@ PPN: Thanks for your explanation about templates.
Actually, backin' up them to html files with FF hack (before and later), I found where unpredictably (to me... ) changed only some vbstats_ .... ones, exactly those I hadn't ever modified so they still had the '-1' ...
Clear enough the non-replaceing process. But if I hacked a template which should change in an upgrade ?
1) I should have later my modified unupdated version, as the updated one is the 'original' template.
2) I should have only the status as before, i.e. template upgrade got lost
Either ?

Thanks

It was very helpful to know where the changes are. But all my templates are in german. So I had to download a comleate style-set to get 2.2.2 run on my board. I hope the are no new templates! Or are there?

Did it, no problems. Had to run the vbStats script again, though. Also, my vblinks categories drop down is missing now... hmm.

sounds like a template issue as there is nothing in the coding which would cause this.
