If you start your database and container and point your browser to http:~//localhost:8080/xwiki/ you'll have a working, albeit minimal, wiki (without any page loaded).

84 +* A Blog
85 +* A Recent Changes page
86 +* The [[Panels Application>>extensions:Extension.Panels Application]]
87 +* Search

96 +If you're upgrading an existing wiki be careful that the XAR import operation will replace the content of the existing pages of your wiki with the content of the XAR (New pages that you have created will not be modified). As a consequence it's critical that you [[perform a backup>>platform:AdminGuide.Backup]] first and read the upgrade nodes bellow carefully.
