Got version 1.92+ build 120919 and need to update to a better version due to security flaws but want to know how to do this as currently got surveys and don't want to lose them? Any advise/link to instructions on how to upgrade would be great?

Given the age of your version, the safest route would probably be to create a new instance of 3.x and port your surveys via .lsa export/import.

Cheers,

I agree with Tony. You are many major versions behind and I don't think anyone tested this upgrade path. In generally I recommend a new instance for new major versions, but of course this might be complicated with huge installations. But given that you have such an old version still running, you are probably not using it very frequently anyway, so you probably don't have that many users and surveys, so it should be no big deal to set up a new installation in parallel, configure the installation, create the users, and export/import the surveys
