Hi Alan,

Thanks for your reply.

I have made a backup of the v2.2.0 configuration files.

To ensure I get the new features of v2.2.5 and the custom changes that were in place for v2.2.0, how would you suggest I go about the integration of the configuration files?

Should I start with all the v2.2.0 files and ensure the new version works with them, then integrate the v2.2.5 changes, testing them one-by-one?

Or is there a better method?

For v2.2.0, I upgraded from a package install, so everything was in a different location.  I added the previous custom changes into the v2.2.0 configuration files and it worked pretty much first time.  That approach hasn't worked this time.
