I moved your post to the UP 2013.12.06 topic.yaloo1935 wrote:I performed the update 2013.12.06 and probably responded to replace the config files for Solydx. Then I found the recommendation to not replace sometime after the updating was completed. What are some of the consequences of keeping versus replacing? Is it so serious doing the replacement that a re-install is required to correct the situation? Sorry if this has been answered already but I failed to locate it in my searches!!!
Replacing the configuration files simply means that you will need to re-configure those after the upgrade.
For example, if you chose to replace the network file while upgrading, and you configured your system to use a static IP address, these settings would have been replaced by the default settings, and you will need to re-configure your static IP address.
In short: no, you don't need to re-install, just re-configure.
