Upgrade Instructions

You can try to use the automatic upgrade process from your ArrowChat admin panel under the "Update" navigation. If that process fails, you can update ArrowChat by following these instructions:

1. Download ArrowChat from http://www.arrowchat.com/members/index.php?do=purchases
2. Extract files
3. Delete the arrowchat/config.php file and install folder. You can also delete the "themes", "language", and "applications" folders if you have custom edits.
4. Copy and overwrite all files onto your server.
5. Run the Upgrade Folder. ex: http://www.yourdomain.com/arrowchat/upgrade/
6. Update your themes to take full advantage of the updates.

Rename the includes/functions_receive_{Your integration}.php file to functions_receive.php. Overwrite changes.
