Read on for information on how to BACK UP YOUR GALLERY *before* installing RC2...
We have provided a small PHP script with this version to assist you in making a backup. Since this version is still a *release candidate*, we urge you to back up your Gallery data files before upgrading. When you download and decompress this release candidate, the script will be located in:
The script gives you the option of backing up your entire albums ("All files") directory or just the Gallery database files ("Data files only"). While you should have a backup copy of all your photos, for most upgrades, it is sufficient to just back up the data files only. Note that backing up all the files could produce a *huge* file, since all of your photos will be included.
Finally, verify the contents of the downladed backup file to make sure the files were indeed saved. Once you have the data files backed up, you can confidently upgrade to this version.
**Note for Windows-based Webservers** On Windows systems, it is recommended that you back up directly using WinZip or your favourite archiving software. If you decide to use this tool, choose 'zip' backup, and ensure the path for the zip.exe is correct.
