Question How to upgrade an XWiki ZIP distribution?

Tested solution for upgrading from distribution to

1-copy the entire WIKI_HOME directory to a backup folder (apart from a couple directories, it's a just-in-case precaution);

2-unzip the 1.3 zip file to WIKI_HOME;

3-delete the newly created database (XWIKI_HOME/database), and replace it with the backed up database folder;

4-If you have modified a skin, apply those changes to the new distribution skin files. Alternatively (not recommended), just copy your previous skin folder to the new distribution webapps/xwiki/skins folder

Thanks, Ricardo Rodriguez
