107
108 * When upgrading make sure you compare and merge the following XWiki configuration files since some parameters may have been modified, removed or added:
109 ** ##xwiki.cfg##
110 ** ##xwiki.properties##
111 ** ##web.xml##
112 ** ##hibernate.cfg.xml##
113 * Add ##xwiki.store.migration=1## in ##xwiki.cfg## so that XWiki will attempt to automatically migrate your current database to any new schema. Make sure you backup your Database before doing anything.

115 == Like Right moved to Extension Rights section ==

117 As explained in [[this dedicated release change>>ReleaseNotes.Data.XWiki.13\.5RC1.Entry001]], a new administration section has been provided for Extension Rights, and the Like rights should now be configured in there. So the Like right won't appear anymore in the Rights section of Administration, but all settings are kept as they were.
