I am founder and webmaster of my own Jeep forum. I have been slacking lately and need to do some updates.

I want to convert my phpBB version 2.0 to the new version 3.0. I have never converted before. I have modified and updated the version 2 a couple years ago but never this type of update.

If there is anyone here who has done this and knows exactly how too and is willing to assist me would you please reply?

I think I know all the steps and I have placed the files on my server in the correct folder area.

I also would like to know if my forum will have to be completely redecorated with banners and such or will they migrate over to the new install? In other words, will my forum look the same after?
