If this is what you have than go ahead and zip it up. So now you have made your own zip file for updating your forum. All that is left to do now is get the forum ready.
How we do that is by backing up the database, uninstalling ALL mods, even if they error, saving any files you have done custom edits to and putting them all nicely on your desktop. So once you are sure you have everything backed up and stored in a safe place, go ahead and upload the zip file YOU created.
Once it's uploaded all that needs to be done is extract it and overwrite the folders and files that are on your server. Point your browser to www.yoursite.com/upgrade.php and your off.
I hope this helps out a bit keep all of you up to date from GH. Alternatively, you can download an nightly build from Simple machines and skip making your own zip folder. The choice is yours. By doing it this way I am guaranteed that all I am getting uploaded to my site is what I want to be overwritten, nothing else.
