Upgrade from arrow trader lite to arrow trader core
It is possible to upgrade from AT Lite to AT Core without any downtime or loss of traffic.
Arrow Trader Core was released several years after Arrow Trader lite.
The type of data and statistics that it records, and the inner workings of the program are very different from AT lite.
It is not possible to simply copy all data from AT lite to AT Core; too many new types of statistics would remain at 0, resulting in instability in your site.
For this reason there is no 1-on-1 conversion program available.
To upgrade, a few manual steps are required. The whole process won't take more than a few minutes.
step 1: Copying trades
Via ftp, open up the file /cgi-bin/at3/d/t/index
This path may be different if you've installed AT lite in a different directory.
Copy the entire contents of this file, and paste it in the input field on our url extraction page
This page will print out the urls from the database. Copy the output, and open your AT Core admin.
Browse to menu - trades - bulk add and copy the extracted urls list in the 'bulk import trades from list' field.
Hit the 'prepare trades' button, and review your final selection.
After having added the trades, make sure that the trade type is set to Full, and consider giving your best trades a force for a day or two,
to assist AT Core while it learns which of your trades are best.
step 2: Switching links
Your database is now populated with the new trades. To start using AT Core, all that's left to do is switch the outgoing links;

step 3: Uninstall Arrow Trader Lite
Once you have switched the links, you can safely uninstall Arrow Trader Lite.
Uninstall AT Lite is a 3 step process.
1. Delete the directory yourdomain.com/cgi-bin/at3/ to delete the program files and databases
2. Delete the directory yourdomain.com/at3/ to delete the program images and any toplists you may have created
3. Delete the cronjob from the crontable that runs the file cgi-bin/at3/cronx.cgi every minute
