Update to the new version

After download the new version, do I just go ahead to install the new exe file? What files need to be backed up before install the new exe file? Thank you!

Depends on what database are you using and do you use a service.

Use in the the windows server. HSQL Database Engine Driver. Service is used. Thank you!

So it’s the embedded database. Then, stop the Openfire service, backup the whole Openfire installation folder (which will include the database, the certificate, some settings), run the installer, install on top into the same directory. Run the service. Should be ok.
