Ontolica Search & Preview – Upgrade to the latest version

ALWAYS USE THE QUICK START GUIDE

GENERAL UPGRADE GUIDE
The general upgrade guide, don’t handle special set-up etc.

  1. Uninstall the backend, (conversion and gatherer services) using the Windows Control Panel on all servers where they are installed.
  2. Unpack the installation package to a folder on the server running SharePoint Central Administration. Run setup.exe from that folder, it will perform a full upgrade, or fresh installation, of the SharePoint front end components.
  3. (Re)install backend, (conversion and gatherer services) on all servers where they are required from the ‘Preview Back-end Installer’ subfolder in the installation folder you expanded the package into. Run MSI.
  4. Upload and activate your new license in SharePoint Central Administration using the Ontolica license area.
  5. (Re)activate all Ontolica Search and Preview features in your SharePoint sites.
  6. Test your installation for full functionality

In case you experience time out or other issues during an upgrade then instead of point 2 do the following:

Uninstall the existing Ontolica Search and Preview using the original installation package.
Unpack the installation package for the new version to a folder on the server running SharePoint Central Administration. Run setup.exe from that folder and reinstall all components.
For a fresh installation, you will skip point 1 and follow the other points as for a new installation. Simply read ‘reinstall’ as ‘install’ etc.
