Hi there,

I didn’t find upgrade instructions in the PDF manual.

I found this https://wiki.list.org/DOC/4.80%20How%20do%20I%20upgrade%20from%20Mailman%202.1.x%20to%20a%20later%20Mailman%202.1.y%3F <https://wiki.list.org/DOC/4.80%20How%20do%20I%20upgrade%20from%20Mailman%202.1.x%20to%20a%20later%20Mailman%202.1.y?>

If I read it correctly, it looks like the same as running install.

I’ve backed up, so I’ll try that.

Thanks, Caesar.
