Question [Q] Upgrade from cyanogenmod m8 to m9 on nexus 5 (solved)

I am very new to rooting and installed cyanogenmod via their installer. I already have m8 installed on my nexus 5 and want to install the newest stable release which is m9. Do I just go to recovery and install the zip for m9? Also I am wondering if i did that would I lose my data....... Thanks

Just go into recovery and flash M9 as well as your custom kernel (if you used one).
And no you would not lose your data.
