Upgrading from 1.4.13

I am a bit behind the times. I need to upgrade from 1.4.13 to 1.5.3. Unfortunately, I can not find detailed instructions and I am not an expert in Linux. I am running SuSE 9.2.

If anyone could help, I would appreciate. The more detail the better.

Thanks in advance.

That's unfortunatly the only help I'm able to offer, so if that doesn't work for you, maybe someone else can help out. Good luck.

Thanks for the thoughts. As I read the info, that will not work for the jump from 1.4 to 1.5 I think I need to do it manually and what I don't know is what I need to protect against losing. I know the html files will be deleted, but which config files I need to keep a copy of and what to do with the mysql databases I am still unsure about (or any other files)

Upgrade Success

In an effort to give back to this forum, I post the results of my upgrade experience. I did an export of my mysql databases (I think) and I made a duplicate of the whole /opt/lampp directory (on the theory you can never be too safe). I then did an install of the newest XAMPP.

All went well. The install kept all of my settings and config files and appears to have kept all of my databases. The only thing I seem to have had to recreate was the users and passwords in mysql. Other than that all seems to have gone without a hitch.
