The attached is an upgrade package, try to use it like a normal SMF upgrade.

Of course keep a backup, because this is a conversion of the "current" database and not an import.

I live dangerously. :P

Nah, actually I took a backup before I ran the importer anyway.

Actually, @emanuele there's no php upgrade script. Just the SQL files. ;)

Silly ema, trix are for kids.

You forgot the index.php file in your upgrade zip as well. I had to dig in upgrade.php to figure out why the script thought I had old or outdated files. You should probably include another check to make sure there is an index.php file. ;)

Also, the old SMF settings.php file was left mostly untouched, so that even changing $maintenance = 2; to 0 didn't undo maintenance mode. I had to import the settings to the Elk settings.php file and then upload that in place of it, before my board would load.

But that's okay, it's still RC. Should probably fix those up before final, though.

That's pretty odd...
I'll test it again tomorrow.
