Upgrading Magento

Hi guys,

I am currently running Magento, I need to upgrade to at least 1.6 to be able to use certain plug ins I need.

I have no idea how to accomplish this, you guys have been great help in the past so I thought I'd ask the experts.

I have read through the following page ( http://www.magentocommerce.com/wiki/1_-_installation_and_configuration/upgrading_magento )

but it didn't make much sense, perhaps some one knows of a free job board where I can post get some one else to do it for a fee.

Is this a big job to carry out?

In Magento Connect you can upgrade all components.
Or just upload the new version direct to your site and the update will take place when you log into Admin.

Do a complete backup of your database and site.

Follow this step to upgrade and 1.6 :

1) Take complete back up of database and files
2) Install the new magento version (1.6) with existing  version database ( This process may take time to complete (2 to 4 hours)
3) After the successful installation add your custom code and themes into it and test the site properly.
