How do I upgrade to the Pro version?
Please tell me, shall I manually upload the Akeeba files to the relevant folder in WP (following the guide mentioned below) or shall I delete the core version and the install pro version?
I have read many support guides, but can not find it.
More specifically, I want to upgrade or update from Akeeba Backup for WordPress Core to Akeeba Backup Professional.
I guess that I can follow the guidance in the description of how to 'You can update Akeeba Backup for WordPress manually doing the following' (from https://www.akeebabackup.com/documentation/akeeba-solo/updating.html) -- but my situation is not exactly the same. And I want to be sure.
Of course I can delete the core version and install the Pro version, but then I loose my backups. If necessary I can do that (and of course I have downloaded the backups via FTP).
