Not sure if it's easier to follow the upgrade directions for the releases between yours and the latest, or just use a file difference tool to see what changed and merged the files. Either way just make a copy of your current ioFTPD dir when the server isn't running so you'll have a fallback if you goof something up
How would I best do this, with the least possible amount of trouble?
1: Copy the whole installation to another directory
2: Install the 7.7.3 over the copied version
3: Check the differences between my old ioftpd.ini and the newly installed one and copy the missing parameters one by one
Does that seem right or am I missing something?
Did you do any breaking changes that could cause my sitebot or ioninja to stop working?

Thanks for any tips
