How does one upgrade from Akeeba Backup Pro 3.0 to ABPro 3.0.1?

(Does one have to uninstall ABPro 3.0 and then install ABPro 3.0.1 or will installing module ABPro 3.0.1 write over module ABPro 3.0? Or should one use FTP?)

Thank you.

You can use the upgrade feature on the Akeeba Control Panel. The Pro version requires that your site user ID and password for AkeebaBackup.com be entered in the Parameters screen.

You can also download the package and install over the old version. You should not uninstall your current version of Akeeba first, since that will remove the database tables and you will lose your configuration changes and backup records in the Administer Backups screen.

Thanks Dale. Actually, I discovered the Upgrade button on the right in the control panel just before I read your answer! I entered my Akeebabackup.com username and password and everything went smoothly.

Thanks again.

Oh! By the way, I have posted a new entry on my blog about Akeeba Backup becasue it's such a handy tool. However, I still do find it a little expensive and hope you'll make it available to others for $20 entitling them to support and updates for 6 months.

Kind regards,
Olivier

Oliver,

I'm glad the upgrade went well. Thank you for the mention in your blog and I'll pass your pricing suggestion on to Nicholas. :)

There will be a lower priced version with a more limited time for updates in due time. It's not going to be 20$/6 months, but something close enough :)

This is a Joomla! issue, usually stemming from the fact that the FTP layer isn't set correctly up. We have some installation troubleshooting documentation. Have you tried it?
