Any chance to update from 1.6.9 to 1.7.2 without a new installation?

From 1.6.9 to 1.7.2 an upgrade should be unproblematic.
A general description can be found here.
There are more upgrade instructions in section " Upgrade instructions".

I recommend in such cases to use a new 1.7.2 installation and to transfer the content. But maybe a simple upgrade will work as well.

Basically your content has to be exported from the old installation with the Exchange plugin and imported into the new installation.

However, some older plugins may not work with XH 1.7.2.
