Upgrading older versions of BallroomDJ (prior to 1.20)

Post by bll » Thu Jul 03, 2014 1:48 pm

The safest way to upgrade from an older (before version 1.20) BallroomDJ version is to do the following:
  • Rename the BallroomDJ folder (e.g. to BallroomDJ.old)
    Install the new version of BallroomDJ
    Copy the following folders and files from the old folder to the new folder:
    • data/ (the entire folder)
      code/genres.tcl
      code/dancetypes.tcl
      code/dancespeeds.tcl
      code/dancedefaults.tcl
      code/ratings.tcl
      code/rules.tcl
      code/status.tcl
      code/sortopt.tcl
With this method, you will have a backup of your files and there is no danger of having your data deleted.
