It is always recommended to stay up to date with the latest version of any software to avoid running into unnecessary bugs by receiving the latest updates from us. There are things to remember each time you run an upgrade: Backup, backup and backup.
Make it a habit to run a backup before uninstalling ANY component; this includes EasyArticles. There are many school of thoughs of ways to backup your site, but please stick with what you're most comfortable with. We would like to recommend you to read through this documentation on Backing Up Your Site.
Basically, upgrading EasyArticles is simple as installing the component. You could either:
- Install the latest version over the existing component, or.
- Uninstall the previous version and install the latest version again.
Friendly reminder: Please do understand that we'll not be held responsible if your modified files are deleted during the upgrade process. It is your responsibility to make a backup of your own files.
