HI,

I am just asking for some clarification on the manual upgrade procedure from 2.0 to 2.05

The quick way (for minor version changes)

You can use these instructions if you are doing a minor upgrade (for example from 2.00 to 2.01)

Backup your files and database (did we already mention that?)
Delete all the old files/directory except for
/application/config/config.php
/upload directory
Copy the new files from the new LimeSurvey package to the existing location.
After the upgrade: Clear your browser cache and cookies!


If I delete all the files except those noted above and unpack the compressed file I guess my files will get overwritten so I should replace them after the unpack?

What exactly happens between "Copy the new files from the new LimeSurvey package to the existing location." and "After the upgrade" ? Should I go through the install process or delete the installer folder?
