Back up all files and the database first though and you will need my 2.2 to 2.3 script from http://www.carbonize.co.uk/AG/ and after that you will need to also run the db_update script found in the misc folder of 2.4.

Finally got time to do the upgrade to the guestbook this morning.
I downloaded the script for 2.2 to 2.3 and ran that. I then downloaded the current 2.4 guestbook and uploaded that. There was no db_update script in he misc folder but there was a convert_tables_to_utf8 so I attempted to run that and got:
Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Access denied for user 'ov1_agbook1'@'localhost' (using password: YES)
Attempting to pull up the guestbook resulted in connection error.
So I restored the 2.2 files and the 2.2 db and my guestbook was back but I still had the same problem that started the thread.
Reading on Carbonize'a site he had a patched sessions.class exploit fix so I uploaded that to my guestbook and still had the same issues.
Figured I might as well play, so I used the session.class file from the 2.4 guestbook and uploaded to my guestbook. I logged into my site and the new file corrected my admin issues. I made some tests adding, editing and deleting and the GB seems to be working fine. A 2.2 guestbook with a 2.4 sessions.class file.
And all I wanted when I started this was to upgrade to have a capatcha
