This guide also applies for regularly maintenance releases.
Before the update ALWAYS backup up your files and the database!
An update or upgrade will be installed by first copying ALL purchased packages to the install folder of the server.
Then extract them as root:
tar xzf vimp.XXX.XXX.tar.gz
Adjust the owner:group (example for Debian):

If you want to install additional modules, each tarball has an "INSTALL" file included. Follow the individual instructions of the install file to install the modules.
