Best Installation Format to make upgrades as easy as possible

Jun 25, 2010 at 7:24 PM

Dear fellow developers,

I have a blog engine site running Blog Engine 1.5.0.7.

I am going to upgrade to Blog Engine 1.6.

I did some things in my first install, that I am finding out now, make upgrading more difficult.

For example, I modified source code (could live without), and decided to use SQL Server (thought to be preferred, but will listen to why other options are easier to upgrade).

Is there a suggested install method to use that will make future upgrades as easy as possible?

What are the suggested methods of Branding that can easily be moved from version to version (I expect .CSS is one such answer)... are there others such as logo use?
