We recommend that you back up your Smart Construction site, vault and database before you upgrade. You can locate your web site by browsing to [Drive]:\SmartPlant Foundation [Software version] Server Files\Web_Sites\[Web Site].
You can export your configuration using the Export Configuration option in SmartPlant Foundation Server Manager. For more information, see Export site configurations.
When you upgrade Smart Construction to another version, you must back up all customized reports in a separate location than the sites that are being upgraded. After the upgrade, you can move these report files back to upgraded site location.
