Make a full backup of your website (both files and DB)
Remove all old Icy Phoenix files, but make sure you are not deleting other stuff you may need!
When deleting files, pay particular attention to custom files and folders like these:
Copy all new Icy Phoenix files into your root
Make sure you apply the right CHMOD permissions as listed in the Fresh Installation section above
Copy install/convert_utf8_nodbal.php to your website root and launch it (this is needed to convert your old DB to UTF-8)
Delete convert_utf8_nodbal.php from your root
Launch install/database_update.php and update your DB
Run install/install.php since you need to run Add Uploaded Images To DB (Upgrading from Icy Phoenix 1.3 or above) to add all uploaded images to DB (i.e. http://www.mysite.com/ip/install/install.php).
Delete or rename install folder
Customize files and settings to correctly setup your site (some files needs to be edited manually, while most of the options may be set in ACP and CMS). Here is a short list of some files you may want to edit manually:
.htaccess: settings about your domain and basic Apache settings.
robots.txt: change the path of your sitemap and customize basics bots rules.
favicon.ico and images/favicon.ico: customize your site icon.
includes/constants.php: customize some constants values and set your main admins id.
language/lang_XXX/lang_main_settings.php: some important data about you, your site and basic settings.
templates/default/overall_header*.tpl: you can customize here some parts of the appearance of your template (some of these settings may be changed in ACP and CMS, so you don't need to edit these files).
Customize options in ACP and CMS.
Enjoy your New Site
