Re: Re: How do I upgrade from 2.0 to 2.1

Perhaps someone could correct me if I'm wrong but I'm sure that I read somewhere that there are no database changes between 2.0 and 2.1. Does this imply then that there need not be any SQL script. In fact, why do I need to run the installer (tiki-install.php) at all, isn't simply copying and replacing the changed files sufficient?

I did just that last night (I fact can't access the tiki-install.php file because I get 403 permissions problems even though the file has at least 775 permissions and I can set it to 777 if I really must). However, Tiki reports that it is now running 2.1. Does Tiki lie, am I missing a final piece of the puzzle? I did some basic testing and everything seems to work ok.
