  7. Select Basic Options.
  8. Select Model.
  9. Prepare Database.
  10. Update Files and Login.

Backup Your Existing Files

If this is a new installation...

We recommend that you store the original zip that you downloaded from www.2020applications.com file in a safe location. Do not store it on your web server (where it may be available for others to download), but perhaps save it to your local computer, CD-Rom, or floppy disk. Note that the file can be downloaded from www.2020applications.com again in the future if you need but it's best practice to keep a local copy.

If you are upgrading from a previous version...

We recommend that you store the following in a safe location:

  1. The original zip file(s) that you downloaded from www.2020applications.com of all previous version(s).
  2. The original zip file of this upgrade that you downloaded from www.2020applications.com.
  3. A copy of all current files currently in use by 20/20 products on your web site. The easiest way to accomplish this is to zip the main folder and all of its subfolders and files into a single compressed archive. Perhaps mark it with the current date and save it on your local computer, CD-Rom, or floppy disk.
Note that the following files may be altered during this installation:

If the setup fails for any reason, you may upload the original versions of these files and begin the setup process again.
