Follow these steps:
(1) Back up your entire database via phpMyAdmin and /userhome folder files via FTP.
(2) Download the lastest release and unzip the files to your local drive.
(3) Select the module(s) you want to upgrade and FTP all files to your Web folder.
(4) Log into the Admin area, click on Extras (or Dataport in older versions), and then click on Upgrade.
(5) Upgrade the selected module(s).
(6) Check the upgrade modules for error. Check to see if your customized settings are still intact.
(7) For Online Store, go to Toolkit and click on Payment. Select the settings you want and save them.
Things to Avoid:
(1) Do not replace /userhome files with the downloaded files.
(2) Do not uninstall the modules because the process will delete all of your data.
(3) Do not edit the database tables via phpMyAdmin unless you know what to do.
(1) Existing and old examples that come with Miniweb 2.0 do not get upgrade. Form Maker, in particular, will need to be reinstalled if you want to use the examples.
(2) Example member photos in the social networking platform do not get added when you upgrade Members module.

Captcha doesn't seem to work. What is the fix?
There are two common issues with captcha:
1. If you don't see the captcha image, check with your Web host to make sure that GD library is installed for your Web server.
2. If the image is there but you can't seem to put in the matching code, there maybe an image catching setting on your Web server. You can try editing .htaccess file in the main folder. Remove the # in 3. to make it look like below:
# 3. Stop caching of any media on the server so that you can see new images without refresh wait time.
Concat your Web host and inquire about image caching if the setting doesn't work. The last solution is to use Text captcha. You can switch over to this format in Tools > Security section.
