<h3>Important notes</h3>
<b>Upgrading from 1.1.x to 1.3.2</b><br/>
As of 1.2, WikkaWiki incorporates new support for modularized themes. A new file hierarchy has been introduced, and the old <tt>css/</tt> directory is going away. <strong>It is imperative that you make a backup of your <tt>css/</tt> and <tt>templates/</tt> directory BEFORE attempting to upgrade, if you have customized your site theme!</strong> Failure to do so will most likely result in a loss of part or all of your theme changes. <em>It's always good practice to back up both your Wikka install directory and your database prior to any upgrades.</em>
<b>Upgrading from 1.2 to 1.3.2</b><br/>
Some CSS changes have been made to the themes, so as always, please make a backup of your <tt>default</tt>, <tt>light</tt>, and/or <tt>kubric</tt> themes if you have customized them.

Also, the 1.3.2 installer now backs up the standard installed files in <tt>config/</tt>, as these have changed significantly. If you have modified your menus, you will have to manually merge your changes into the new installed <tt>config/</tt> files.

>>Users running previous versions of Wikka are strongly recommended to **[[UpgradeNotes | upgrade]]** or **[[WikkaInstallation | install a fresh package]]**. [[UpgradeNotes | Upgrading]] via the web-based wizard takes only a few minutes.

====Upgrading from or earlier====
Significant changes were made in 1.2, so you're advised to scan through the [[Installing12 | 1.2 installation notes]] prior to upgrading. **Please be sure to read the important upgrade notice at the top of this page before proceeding.**

====Upgrading from 1.2====
To upgrade from a previous 1.2 or earlier install, simply overwrite all existing files from the installation with a fresh [[WhatsNew12 | 1.2 download]]. The upgrader will be invoked so you can verify existing DB and/or config settings. **Please be sure to read the important upgrade notice at the top of this page before proceeding.**

Feedback on potential issues related to upgrading from previous versions is always welcome. Please report any bug, issue or feature suggestion for 1.3.1 in the [[ | tracker]].
