MG 1.1 Media Gallery Install Question


Active member

I'm getting ready to install Media Gallery and Resource Manager. I was reading the install doc for both and noticed on both in says,

"It is important that the files on the server and what you're uploading are "merged". Otherwise you may break your XenForo installation."

What exactly does merge mean? Can I just upload the files to my install directory and overwrite? I know this is probably a stupid question but I want to be sure about the installation and not "break" my forum...

Thank you,

Your FTP application should handle it automatically but essentially you merge directories and overwrite files - the same process as upgrading XF.
