Oh here i am again after one year and maybe more from the last time i wrote :))

Well well, i want to upgrade my site from "2.0.18.2" to...the latest version .

This is the one , the biggest problem.

From the parent site i want to keep
1) the forum (everything as it is)
2) News.
3) Topics
4) Statistics
5) the members of course without to have to resign in .


How does this sound???

You'll need to tell us the module versions, and the PHP version that you're using.

Some modules might be working just fine after the upgrade, but some might need to bu updated as well.

* First, I would recommend to set up a test site, with PHP 5, and copy your current site there. Also, copy the current DB to a new one, that you would be using on the test site. You can do it on your current server, but it's easier to use something like WAMPServer on your local PC.

* Once you have it there, then make sure that all your links in mainfile.php are updated correctly and pointing to the new test site.

* Follow the instructions for full Update and copy the XOOPS 2.5.4 files as instructed (before you do it, make sure that you delete the /module/system directory)

* copy and run /upgrade (as explained in the instructions) and in the Admin update the system module (this should be the last step in your Upgrade script above)

Now the fun part begins

Several of the modules might not work, because you'll be on PHP 5.

Of the modules that I am aware of, you'll need to update several of them:

Forum 3.05 => at least 3.08, but we'll have soon 4.10, so you might wait 3-4 weeks.
Files 1.20 (I don't know it)
protector 3.04 ==> this will be updated with the XOOPS Update
articls 1.03 (don't know it)
communication 1.27 (don't know it)
F.A.Q 1.08 ==> 1.23 coming soon
relative links 0.97 (don't know it)
Tips and Tricks 1.00 (don't know it)
Shoutbox 4.05 (I think, it should run)
Polls 1.30 ==> it should work, but 1.33 coming soon
Sitemap 1.30 ==> it should work
News 1.56 ==> at least 1.66, but 1.67 coming soon
XOOPS Info 2.14 (you probably don't need it anymore)
Captcha Module 0.11 (don't know it - what do you use it for?)
SmartObject Framework 0.90
AVAMAN 0.21 (should work)
Site Statistics 0.45 (don't know it)
d3pipes 0.56
ALTSYS 0.55 ==> at least 0.71, but I think, there is a newer one from Japan
Photos 2.84(don't know it)
message manage 2.63 (don't know it)
My tabs 2.10 (should work)

Important things:

1) make sure that you read the info about Protector, and the proper position of "Trust path"

2) If you have problems with blank screens, deactivate modules in your database using phpMyAdmin (except the System module), and then add them one by one to identify those causing the problem.

Some of the modules above might be outdated, and their functionality might be found in some other newer modules, so you actually might get rid of them.

Hopefully some other people provide info about modules that I don't know.

I download and setup the latest version of xoops locally on my pc.

If i understand correct you suggest me to copy the files from my parent site in my new local xoops?

Had to make a backup file first right and download it local?

current DB you mean the db of my site or of my local new xoops?

I use the WAMPServer as you sad but i have queries and i am only at the beggining of your first replay:)

Yes, make a backup of your remote files and your remote DB, and then copy that to your WAMP, so you can test it locally.
