Currently running I think 3.0,
Tried to upgrade 3.02, 3.04,3.05

And it doesn't work.

I have the install with Saphire.

Here is what I ddid

1) Backed up everything inc the DB
2) Deleted CMS and Sapphire Directory
3) Upload CMS and Framework.
4) I get errors

Am I doing something wrong or is it just trick to upgrade from the non-frame work to framework

Please let me know what I can do to fix this as I do want the latest security release that is stable...

If you've deleted a directory called "Sapphire" then you must have been running an earlier version like 2.4.7. As of SS3 the Sapphire framework was simply renamed to "framework".

What are the errors it is giving you?

Have you removed any modules you have installed? Best to start off clean and then add them back in one by one just in case there are any compatibility issues. You can do so quite easily by renaming the _config.php files in the root of your module folders to something else like "config.php".

Hope that helps, good luck!

I thought I had it, but then i went into the index and changed all sapphire for frame work

Then I got this page

Do I have to do some programming here; or did I do something wrong in this upgrade test site...
