Updating Software

For Versions 7.3.5 and earlier: Update an Earlier Version

We recommend keeping updated with security software upgrades, which can be downloaded from the website. Currently, for added safety precautions, the software will not auto-update itself.

Upgrades and Support are included in your subscription plan (renewed annually). Select to install a software version which was created before your License Expiry date.

  1. Confirm your Maintenance Subscription
    • Determine your subscription's Expiry Date, and if your subscription is expired, renew it before you continue to the steps below. Either:
      • Click Check License Status button on License Status page to confirm expiry date
      • Enter your License Key on this page and click Upgrade/Renew
  2. Make a backup
    • Note: There is no way to restore a previous version without a backup.
      • Ensure the encryption key is saved: which is needed for Backup/Restore functionality, or Encrypted SQLite databases.
    • Reference: Items included in the Database Backup
  3. Download and Run the Installer
    • If you are running versions 7.3.5 or earlier: Update an Earlier Version
    • If you are running versions 7.3.7 or later, install these directly:
    • Stable version (recommended)
    • Latest version
      • Contains the newest features and fixes. Some of these features may still be undergoing additional Quality Assurance (not recommended for large enterprise implementations)

    • Please note:

      • Please be prepared for a potential delay while restarting the service/site after an upgrade, as the database may need to undergo a series of database conversion steps to prepare for the new version. Plan for up to half an hour or more. The length of duration will depend on the size and age of your database, as well as which version you are upgrading from, especially if the version is out-dated. We have been working to further optimize this process for future releases.

  4. Re-apply custom config settings
  5. Reactivate License Key on License Tab
    • This is only necessary to refresh the license status, or if license details have be cleared out.
