Installation and Upgrade Instructions
Full details for how to install and upgrade XenForo can be found in the XenForo Manual.
Add-ons and styles may be broken after upgrading to 1.4 (from 1.3 or earlier). You must test your add-ons thoroughly or look for updates. Be especially careful with add-ons that cover similar features to ones that are added to 1.4; these may conflict with the core XenForo data. If data conflicts are found, they will need to be resolved in a new add-on release or by removing the add-on before upgrading to 1.4.
We highly recommend that you backup your data (database and files) before you upgrade to 1.4, particularly if you are running third-party add-ons. You may wish to also upgrade your test installation before updating production to make sure you are prepared.
