There's some info on http://www.jisctechdis.ac.uk/techdis/events/detail/2013/xertefriday22032013 - I think the presentation has the key points but there was also a posting in January along these lines:

General process as follows:

1. backup existing database and directory just in case
2. drop 1.9 code over top of existing code
3. visit the install to test the basics are working ok via guest access e.g. create and test an LO
4. If you are using LDAP for authentication visit http://yourinstall/upgrade.php to automatically copy details from sitedeatils to ldap table
5. change from guest to ldap or one of the other authentication options in auth_config.php by commenting/un-commenting the relevant line
6. If you are using Moodle for authentication read and follow the instructions in the moodle_integration_readme file
7. refresh index.php and test login and creation etc

A final point - there isn't a maintenance mode like these is in Moodle for preventing non-admins logging in during upgrade and you dodn't want people creating new LO's in case you do have to revert back so perhaps schedule this and notify people and/or rename index.php temporarily so only you can visit and test etc.

Don't ask me what it means though - I'm only messenger boy in these matters...

Is there a direct upgrade path such as just installing 2.0 over 1.9 or is there anything I need to do first. This is standalone on a local XAMPP install.
