I have tried to upgrade my forum (i use a clone populated as a test copy), from 2.0.17 to 2.1RC3 with the large upgrade package provided by SMF, but nothing happened. I have a message saying that the archive is empty (the archive is 3,6 Mo and is not empty).
Any idea please?
Thanks

Please give specifics for what you did EXACTLY when you tried to upgrade it.

Also, were there any problems or errors on your test copy?

Thank you for the quick reply
- i have cloned my forum (SMF 2.0.17) an Db and place it on a test folder called "test" and verified that it works
- downloaded the archive "smf_2-1-rc3_upgrade.zip" and extrat it to a folder called "smf_2-1-rc3_upgrade" in the "Packages" folder of the test site.
- launched the URL: myforum.com/test/Packages/smf_2-1-rc3_upgrade/upgrade.php
And i have error 403 (see screenshot attached)

i have chmod all files and folders to 777

Any idea please?

Finally i found how to and upgraded my Forum Test Site to 2.1RC3.
I had just to copy files from "smf_2-1-rc3_upgrade" folder to the root and execute upgrade.php file.
Thanks to all :)
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year To the Team and members :) :)

you in your case you mean 'copy' into the test folder?
I reject your reality, and substitute my own.
