Steps to Upgrade Seo Panel

Before upgrade please take the backup of your current seo panel database and code.

1. Change the current seo panel directory name or move it to another place, e.g seopanel to seopanel_bak

2. Download and Unzip the new version

3. Upload all the files contained in this folder (retaining the directory structure) to a web accessible directory on your server or hosting account.

4. Copy the contents of sample config file config/sp-config-sample.php to config/sp-config.php or remove config /sp-config.php and rename     config/sp-config-sample.php to config/sp-config.php

5. Open up config/sp-config.php with a text editor like Notepad or similar editor.
    Then modify the following sections with your server and database settings of previous version of seo panel.

# The web path or url to access seo panel through browser.
define('SP_WEBPATH', 'http://localhost/seopanel');

# DB settings - You can get this info from your web hosting provider.
# The name of the database for seo panel
define('DB_NAME', 'seopanel');

# DB database username
define('DB_USER', 'root');

# DB database password
define('DB_PASSWORD', '');

# DB hostname
define('DB_HOST', 'localhost');

6. Save the contents of file config/sp-config.php.
