Upgrading WCS to ?????

Answered Question

I am trying to do an upgrade from to but release notes say to upgrade to first, since users, etc. wont migrate. My question is: when I go through the install, it tells me I have WCS already installed. I say of and continue, it then says it's using port 80 and I should change this to go forward. Well, I am just trying to upgrade and not install another WCS on the server. Is there a process I am missing?

Stop the WCS service before you upgrade.

Are you doing on windows or Linux?

Have you rebooted the server?

I believe under control panel| administrative tools | services, set it to disable.

I would leave it for now, there may be some shared dlls, etc..

I run WCS on linux and it is all contained under /opt/WCS4.xxxx

Plus the upgrade on linux is as follows:

backup, remove , install , restore. So, in essence, it is not really an upgrade, but installing a newer version and then importing the data
