Following some good advice in another thread, I'd like to upgrade my TNG installation from 7.0.2 to 7.1.0. I am advised to simply unzip and upload all files, and then to follow the steps outlined in readme.html. I've had so many problems with my host that I don't want to screw this up.
The readme.html requires specific steps that I've already taken. And so:
- Do I need to copy individual files to specific subfolders admin, googlemaps, font and English?
- Do I need to repeat "set permissions?"
- Should I bypass the creation of local folders such as media, photos, etc., since they already are created?
- I'm fairly sure I need to identify host name, database name, username and password, but do I need to follow the readme and create database tables? I would think that doing so would overwrite the current tables, and destroy my data.
There is an express installation that includes: set permissions, create folders, establish database connection (save and verify) and create tables. Would that serve to accomplish the upgrade and if so, do I need to do all the steps?
