- Once you unzip the package go into Scripts -> database -> upgrade_repository then: click which server you have (MS SQL Server labeled sqlserver) and select the upgrade script that corresponds with your current version.
- Open and Run it against your repository database (often named iDashboards)
- This should not have any errors, if it does please contact the Support Team so we can best assist.
- Go back into that installation package main folder, go in the bin folder and copy the three .war files (idashboards.war, idbdata.war, scorecards.war; idb_graphics.zip and idbext.jar are optional)
- Locate where iDashboards is installed on your computer
- C: Program Files/iDashboards_SRV
- Open the Server folder then webapps
- Create a new folder and label with your current version number
- Put the existing .war files into the folder
- Now, move the new folder into the Server folder
- Once this happens you will see the idashboards, idbdata. and scorecards folders disappear
- Do NOT go to step 10 until they disappear
- Paste those copied .war files from the installation package into the webapps folder and it will re-create the folders: idashboards, idbdata, and scorecards
- Once those are re-created you will officially be upgraded
- If you can do this successfully then you will be all set for future upgrades!
