Is it hard, can I just overwrite the files and that will do the trick?

I have also root folder inside the public html folder and is pass protected, is that an issue?

I know from my experience the update was always so hard, so I am kind of afraid to do it and mess up my site, and congrats for adding meta tags to the site, i waited that for years

If you're on 1.4, you probably haven't seen our new install script yet? It makes things a lot easier - no more editing of files.

Read the instructions, including those that come up when you call up the install script. Of course, it never hurts to have backups of everything.

Your theme will have to be updated. See the list of changes. Depending on how customized your is, it may be easier to start over by customizing the Professional theme that comes with 1.6.1.

bye, Dirk

The directory layout hasn't changed, if that's what you mean.

bye, Dirk
