Just add a new function at the bottom of 'upgrade.php' - increment the number each time -

i.e. function upgrade_1(), function upgrade_2(), function upgrade_3() etc etc.

The script checks the 'config' table each time it runs to know which was the last update applied. 

If there are any functions defined with a higher number (E.g. upgrade_4()) then it'll run them in order, and update the config table afterwards.

It already exists - in the 'config' table, which upgrade.php will create if it doesn't already exist.
