Upgrading MyConnection Server on Windows

1) STOP the MyConnection Server SERVICE.

Sub section menu:

This will appear in the services list as shown on the right.

2) BACKUP (not required)

BACKUP the MyConnection Server installation directory.

All this requires is copying the root directory. For more information see "points of interest" at the bottom of this section.

3) INSTALL the new version of MCS.

Over installing will keep all exisiting settings and data.

The MCS SERVICE will AUTO START once the installation has been completed.

If upgrading from MCS v9.6 or below we HIGHLY RECOMMEND reading up on SIGNED APPLET changes and why we use JAVA by clicking here.

4) Notes of Interest

• MCS is intentionally designed to operate from within the root directory. (Please note you can copy the MCS root directory from a Linux or MAC platform to a Windows platform and run the Windows executable. Also note that once the root directory has been copied it's necessary to over-install to that directory for it to run correctly.)

• As the install directory can be copied, this obviously allows you to test the upgrade on a test server very easily before committing this to the production install.

• This process assumes that the install templates files have not been manually changed, upgrading will never overwrite any custom changes made unless these changes have been made to the master template files erroneously.

• The save copy of the MCS root install can obviously be used to revert back to the prior install quickly.
