best practice to upgrade citrix web interface 4.6 to 5.0

Hello there,
I have production Citrix secure gateway server configured in DMZ zone to allow external users to login via Citrix Web Access.
I am planning to upgrade just the WI component from 4.6 TO 5.0 in production Citrix Secure Gateway server. I would like to know what is the best practice?
When I run WI 5.0, will it retain the configuration? OR will I have to configure all the site settings?
Please help.

Make a copy of your Webinterface.conf file.  Make a copy of any customizations you made to images or any other WI files.

Install WI5.  Test.  If anything is missing, copy over the saved copy of your webinterface.conf file.

Test.

I have never had an upgrade from WI 4.x to 5.0 fail.  The entire process should take less than 2 or 3 minutes and that is if you take your dear sweet time.

Which WebInterface.conf should i backup - there are three in different locations: C:\ProgramFiles\Citrix\Web Interface\4.2\mcm.zip
C:\ProgramFiles\Citrix\Web Interface\4.2\pna.zip
C:\ProgramFiles\Citrix\Web Interface\4.2\wi.zip
Please advise if the one in WI.zip should be backed up?

I could successfully complete the upgrade by backing up WebInterface Config backup\MetaFrame  and then customised  WI 5.0.1

Backing up old WebInterface config first enabled upgrade process to be completed without any much hiccup.
