When you upgrade to a new version, the files in the application directory are substituted with the new files.
The base directory and all its files are not modified when you upgrade the CommuniGate Pro Server software, so all Accounts, Mailboxes, messages, settings, File Storage files, Licenses, customized Web Skin, and Real-Time Application files stay in place and continue to work with the new version of the CommuniGate Pro software.
Note: if you chose to manually modify Web Skin or Real-Time Application files right in the application directory, then you should save them before upgrading.
Download the new version of the CommuniGate Pro Software.
Stop the CommuniGate Pro Server.
Remove the previous version of the software using the same installation utility you used to install the software (the base directory will not be removed). This step is needed if the OS installer does not allow you to install a new version "on top" of the old one (Solaris, FreeBSD, Linux). Note: If you are using the Linux rpm package manager, do not use its "update" option: uninstall the old version, then install the new one:
Install the new version of the CommuniGate Pro Software.
Start the CommuniGate Pro Server.
