[Zope] Problem with using versions.

I'm running 2.6.2.  What's the most recent stable release?  2.10.3?

I hate to say this, but my Zope knowledge is very limited.  I'm really only
using it because it's what my predecessor used to build the web site in the
first place, and she's not a whole lot of help now.  

I went here (http://wiki.zope.org/ZODB/FileStorageBackup) to read up on
backups, but I'm afraid it doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me.

The built in version handling was deprecated long ago for exactly these
problems. Which Zope version are you using?

- back up your Data.fs(s)
- export your structure as it is (better do this per root element)
- undo your last steps (this is optional in case you cannot see
   important parts due to version lock) and export these objects
   as well

- stop zope/zeo and delete Data.fs(s), restart it and
   create your site again using your above exports.

- do not use zope versions anymore.

if your zope is old, try to upgrade while you are working
on it. In this case, you can skip step 4.
