Update 2.02 > 2.03
Before I run into problems .....

How to update from 2.02 >> 2.03

I will backup templates, ok!
What about config-files?

Is there anything else to be saved or backup before?

I recommend backing up everything just to be safe - ie all files and your database. (Can't hurt)

Paul,

backup everything is not the problem. I need to know how to avoid big problems. My project should run after update. I┤m just afraid to having problems.

I remember the 2.01 >> 2.02 update, where the routine asked which files should be overwritten.

What┤s the right way, overwrite everything (except db), or just a part of the files?

All I did to upgrade was untar into the working directory,
answer N to overwrite config, N to overwrite templates, and Y to overwrite
perl/cgi. It installed like a dream. No problems. 2.0.2 was rough. This
was very smooth.

But, yes, make a back up, just in case. You should ALWAYS have a backup.

OK, overwrite just CGI is fine.
But what's about this few new template files and as I know there was a change in the database structure?
