My suggestion would be:
assuming your current 4images is installed in "4images" folder on server root.
Then install latest 4images version into "4images2" folder on server root. (so now you have 4images and 4images2 folders). By installing I mean only upload files, do not execute the install.php.
Copy config.php file from 4images folder to 4images2 folder.
copy your themes to 4images2 installation.
edit 4images2/includes/constants.php and replace
Code: [Select]
define('MEDIA_DIR', 'data/media');
define('THUMB_DIR', 'data/thumbnails');
Code: [Select]
define('MEDIA_DIR', '../4images/data/media'); //relative path to data/media folder in old 4images
define('THUMB_DIR', '../4images/data/thumbnails'); //relative path to data/thumbnails folder in old 4images
Now, you can test and modify your new 4images without affecting the old, however changing settings (or adding/removing images) in new 4images will affect the old one too.
Your first three "must do" before you ask a question:
Please do not PM me asking for help unless you've been specifically asked to do so. Such PMs will be deleted without answer. (forum rule #6)

That is a very good suggestion Vono. Thank you

quite urgent. Need to fix everyting before the christmas rush.
