I've been using 6.5.0 for a while now, and there are a couple of things on the nightlies that I'd like. However, there is no detail as to how to upgrade. The wiki has this:

1. Content will be added in here about how to upgrade your version of slimserver. For example, is it okay to just install everything over your existing version?

Helpful - not! Do I just run the Win .exe (I use XP)? Do I need to delete SS or can I install 'on top' of 6.5.0? Do I need to stop SS? Do I need to stop mysqld.exe?

Further, does it keep the settings I have painstakingly set up over the months?

6.5.1 should install on top of 6.5.0 with no problem. Give it a try.

Backup is the magic word. And yes, if you install on top, settings will be
kept.
