How to upgrade Squared Up v4

This article concerns upgrading from one release of Squared Up v4 to another, for example v4.0.5 to the latest release of v4.

For information about upgrading from v3 or earlier to v4, see Migrating from previous versions of Squared Up to v4.

If you are using multiple Squared Up servers using high availability (HA) with a load balancer see Upgrading Squared Up when using high availability.

Procedure

To upgrade Squared Up from any older release of v4 to the latest release of v4, you simply run the new installer exe that you have downloaded on the server where Squared Up is installed.

The installer will run through a similar process to when you first installed v4.

  1. Before upgrading we recommend you backup Squared Up.

  2. Download the the latest version of Squared Up v4.

  3. Run the installer that you have downloaded.

  4. Leave the default install type as In-Place.

    Squared Up v4 Setup

    The installer automatically chooses the appropriate install type:

    In-Place - If a version of v4 is already installed (whether v3 is present or not) the installer will default to an In-Place upgrade, meaning that it will upgrade the current v4 instance (leaving the v3 instance to run as normal).

    For example, if you already have v4.0.5 installed and you want to upgrade to v4.0.7, you should leave the install type as the default of In-place.

    Side-By-Side - If v4 is not already installed, but v3 is, then the installer will default to a Side-By-Side upgrade, and will migrate the v3 content into a new v4 instance (leaving the v3 instance to run as normal). For important information about migrating from version 3 to 4 see Migrating from previous versions of Squared Up to v4.

  5. Complete the installer, and open Squared Up.

If you have configured high availability (HA)

If you are using multiple Squared Up servers using high availability (HA) with a load balancer there are some important considerations to be aware of.
