Updating IP-Location for Joomla!

Whenever updating your current IP-Location for Joomla Installation, first uninstall your current installed version. The database tables after uninstall will be left intact to keep imported data.

Please see the Release Notes for the Version you are about to install as update, as it might be required to drop your database tables as the Data Structures of the IP Location Data from the IpInfoDB Service might have changed.
