The effort to upgrade a customized Smart Construction server site requires the skills of both system administrators and system developers. To ensure the success of an upgrade, follow these guidelines before beginning.
Make a backup of the site.
Identify all customized objects, such as customized library files and controls, and copy them to a temporary location so that these files can be analyzed before the upgrade to determine what customizations need to be maintained and which can be abandoned in order to accept new features in the new version of the software.
All customizations must be evaluated and decisions made as to which customizations are required and need to be reapplied to the new version.
Some customizations may no longer be required because of improvements added to the new version of the software.
