Hi all,
First of all I would like to thank you all Magento team for the good work, the Magento system is great.

While I was using the connection manager to upgrade my environment to version 1.1.8
i have encountered some network problems which result in an unstable system that I am,
trying to operate. The best thing I would like to do is manually upload the 1.1.8 package to my
server and re-install, what I would like to know is the list of backups I am supposed to do before,
such as I know that the database should be backup, what about some directories under magento directory structure,
since I am haviing an operating site which was preconfigured i would like to save settings etc.
(is the media directory should be saved before I am overwriting the entire directory structure with the new files?)

Please help very urgent
Thanks Guys,
