h2. Installation and Setup
33 1 Eric Davis
34 1 Eric Davis
There are two sets of steps to install this plugin.  The first one should be done if you have used version 0.1.0 of the Budget Plugin or 0.2.0 of the Billing Plugin.  This is because the rate data needs to be migrated out of the Budget plugin and into this plugin.
35 1 Eric Davis
36 1 Eric Davis
h3. Option One: If you have data from a previous version of Budget or Billing
37 1 Eric Davis
38 1 Eric Davis
These installation instructions are very specific because the Rate plugin adjusts data inside the Budget plugin so several data integrity checks are needed.
