How To Update To New Version (.zip-Server 2008 R2)


I run the .zip version of OpenFire on Server 2008 R2. I see that a new update is out. This is a very basic install, with the built in data base, and I think just one plug in (the web reg one). How do i go about updating to the newest version, without losing/overwriting my settings and users, etc…?

Do I just replace the .exe’s?



Stop the server. Make a backup of the installation folder. Unzip the content of zip into the installation folder overwriting everything. Copy /conf and /resources/security (if using SSL certificates) folders content from a backup into the installation folder. Run the server.

Exe is not enough, main server code is in the jars and libs (openfire.jar, etc.).

Thank you, sir.
