I would do it after, remember to read the INSTALL file, especially the
UPGRADE section, you have to rebuild the zebra indexes as part of the
upgrade (after running the script to move the item information)

Reading the INSTALL files will tell you have to set up zebra, and how
to set up a cronjob to run rebuild_zebra.pl

There is also an example crontab file in misc/cronjobs

Hope this helps
