Whats the difference? I was looking to update and they are both listed as updates but I dont know which one I need.

I used the windows install (I think) originally, but why is one "current" and one listed as specificly windows?

The majority of webhosts use Unix servers, but a few use Windows servers (or offer both). It has nothing to do with what operating system your computer uses. If you're not sure, check with your host to find out which type is correct for you

The current version is always the same as the latest numeric version.  So as of this post, they're the same.

Alrighty thats what I was assuming, thanks.

Hmm... im using bluehost and its saying its using unix, but I installed the win version back when I did it a few months ago. It has always worked since then, but im wondering if something not visible is not working properly since im not using the unix version. I dont know how big of an issue it is. Should I switch over versions? It doesnt sound like its going to be easy to transfer all the settings...

If you've gotten it to work with the Windows version, and it's a Unix server (like Bluehost), then you should be able to use either interchangeably.  Which means you should be able to install a Unix update over a Windows install without incident.

And you shouldn't need to migrate any setting or anything.  Just make sure the version you're installing is an update and not a full version.

Yep you were right, it worked fine. Used the unix update and had no problems at all... In case anyone else was wondering.

Thanks.
