How To Update Elvui Without Losing Settings.


I'm not familiar with ElvUI, never used it, but as far as I know, it's merely a suite of addons.

 Addons don't keep their settings in the Addons folder, instead they're in subfolders

* of the WTF folder (in the base WoW install folder) so deleting/overwriting the addon folder should not affect the settings. 

However, if you're unsure, copy the previous ElvUI folder elsewhere before applying the new version. You might also want to backup the WTF folder in general (easier than saving multiple individual files) 

* to go into detail, albeit from memory: The folder WTF contains: the file Config.wtf, which contains the global settings of the System menu (in the login screen or ingame) Graphics, Sound etc. 

the folder Account, which contains subfolders for each WoW license that you logged in on, WOW1, WOW2 etc. 

or the account name if the WoW account was created before the Battle.net integration. 

These contain: some files for account-wide data, e.g. general macros a folder named SavedVariables, this contains global addon save data, stuff that isn't character-specific, although many addons with "profiles" use global data so that you can copy profiles between characters.

 ElvUI is probably one of them. a folder for each server you've played on, containing subfolders for each character, which in turn contains: a subfolder names SavedVariables, for character-specific addon save data several files for macros, setup of the default chat frame, or which addons are enabled for that character.

As for updating, unless an AddOn is written without a configuration in game, you can update all your AddOns without fear of losing settings. 

This is because the game itself has two separate folders, one for AddOns and the other for settings, named AddOns and WTF respectively.

Meanwhile i must let you know that most times these settings dont for for so many people and is bulky too, yea , so much technical work.

So i use Tukui Client that you can download from their website. It works the same way as Curse Client. It allows you to just update it with a click of a button.
