I am new to DNN and my client uses a older version of DNNStuff SQL View Pro. I would like to install the open source version released in November but don't want to overwrite the current module being used since their is a lot of pages linked to it. Is there anything I can do to install the new version as a different module so it doesn't replace the previous one? Thanks in advance for any help and advise given!

Rick,

if this is a newer version it overwrites the older one - that is the way, an upgrade works. Normally this should not break anything in the existing module - normally.

I recommend copying the web site and database to a testing environment and try the upgrade there, and if everything works you can apply the upgrade on the production site. To describe the whole process is a bit to much here, and there are blog articles and documentations in the web. It is not really difficult, but there are some point to take care of.

Feel free to contact me if you need help.

Happy DNNing!
Michael
