What is the proper way to upgrade the slimserver as to not lose Favorites and other settings? I just did a clean install of 3.6.1 but lost my settings and favs. I only had 2 saved, but more will come!

most times, it is just fine to install one version over another. your
prefs and plugins are kept as they are.
One must be careful when upgrading to make sure you have the latest
versions of any third party plugins, as the interface may change
from version to version.

super safe method, i'd suggest finding slimserver.pref and making a
backup, and moving the plugins directory somewhere else before doing an
install.
This way, you get to revert if anything goes wrong with the prefs, and
you can copy over one plugin at a time to a clean install and thus
isolate any obsolete plugins.
