Before you change any of the configuration settings on the existing Web server, perform a complete image backup. The purpose of this image backup is to provide a point-in-time snapshot of the Web server. If unforeseen problems occur during the upgrade, you can use this backup to restore the Web server to a known configuration.
|Do not continue with the upgrade process unless you have a successful backup of the entire Web server or you have another Web server that has the same Web sites and applications. Otherwise, you can lose Web sites, applications, or data stored on the Web server.|
For more information about how to back up the Web server, see Back Up and Restore the Web Server to a File or Tape.
