5. After uploading (or moving) all directories, and ensuring all chmods are correct, run the install/upgrade.php script.
6. After you've gone through the upgrade procedure in the upgrade.php file, be sure to REMOVE the install and importers directories.

NOTE Please be sure to create a backup of your database and files before upgrading your installation; the upgrade should happen without a hitch, however, it's better to be safe than sorry...


Gizmo, in step #3, is it correct that at this stage all the old files are being over-written by the new ones?

This is a first for us - we've only done new installations, not upgrades. So forgive the questions. smile
