It says: “ Then copy the configuration files and the permanent directory from the old installation to the new one. Ideally you should not copy over the configuration files exactly since the new version could have added new configuration options and thus ideally you should do a merge instead of a pure copy. Another strategy is to use the new configuration files, not copy over the old configuration files and instead manually edit the new configuration to make the same changes as you have may done before (If you've never touched the configuration files then there's nothing to do obviously!). “ What is not clear? It’s pretty clear to me: "you should not copy over the configuration files exactly since the new version could have added new configuration options”. FYI I’ve added a way to automated a bit the merge but I fear this may confuse you even more: http://platform.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/AdminGuide/Upgrade#HUpgradingthestandarddistribution Thanks -Vincent > I have try to copy the configuration files(old version) and paste in newer > version but still did not work. > > > > -- > View this message in context: > http://xwiki.475771.n2.nabble.com/Upgrading-xwiki-tp7602115p7602125.html > Sent from the XWiki- Users mailing list archive at Nabble.com.
