I am running minimserver on a headless ubuntu server and am about to upgrade from 0.8.3 to 0.8.4.

What do I need to do to keep my current settings when I install the new minimserver?

I have already downloaded and extracted the tarball. It looks like the path to start minserver is the same, so it should start if I copy the new files over the old.

Can I just make a copy of minimserver.config from the data folder and put in the new minimserver/data folder?

As always, thanks for the help. At least I asked before I made a mess of it. However, lesson learned, read properly before going ahead!
