The directions in the subsequent sections assume you are installing Uptime Infrastructure Monitor for the first time. If you are updating an existing Uptime Infrastructure Monitor installation, there are other steps to consider.
Upgrading the Uptime Monitoring Station will overwrite the changes to httpd.conf, so when the upgrade is complete, be sure to update the httpd.conf file again.
You can only upgrade directly to Uptime to Uptime Infrastructure Monitor 7.8 9.x if your currently installed version is version 7.7.x or 78.6.x. Users on version 7.1 must upgrade to version 7.3, then 7.5 before upgrading to 7.7.3, then 7.8. Users on version 7.2 or 7.3 must upgrade to 7.5 before upgrading to 7.8..6, and finally 7.9.x. Upgrades are possible across only two minor releases. Users who are running version 6.0 or 6.0.1 must upgrade to 7.0 > 7.1 > 7.3 > 7.5 > 7.7.3 > 7.8.6 > 7.9.x.
Users who are running version 6.0 or 6.0.1 must upgrade to 7.0 > 7.1 > 7.3 > 7.5 before upgrading to > 7.7.3 > 7.8.6 > 7.9.x. Users who are running version 5.5 or earlier must upgrade to 6.0 or 6.0.1 as a starting point. (Refer to the Uptime Infrastructure Monitor Knowledge Base for specific version upgrade paths.) If you are eligible for a direct upgrade path, you can upgrade using the installer for your Monitoring Station’s operating system. The upgrade process installs new features, and does not modify or delete your existing data.
