It is recommended that you create a mirror site then do the upgade there first. Once everything is ok, proceed to upgrade the live site.
Upload te mooSocial file to the desired location on your web server
If you want to install mooSocial into the root of your domain (e.g. http://example.com/
), move or upload all contents of the unzipped mooSocial directory (excluding the mooSocial directory itself) into the root directory of your web server.
If you want to have your mooSocial installation in its own subdirectory on your website (e.g. http://example.com/moosocial/
), create the blog directory on your server and upload the contents of the unzipped mooSocial package to the directory via FTP
Note: If your FTP client has an option to convert file names to lower case, make sure it's disabled.
