  1. Please read and understand the Migration Considerations which may require your action before beginning.

  2. Stop the 

    Frevvoproduct
     server using <frevvo-home>\stop-frevvo.[bat,sh].

  3. If you are upgrading from v7.x, you will also need to stop the Insight Server (SOLR) by closing the window or if you are using the tomcat bundle by typing these commands in the <frevvo-home>\solr-5.4.1 directory of your existing installation.

    bin\solr.cmd stop -all

  4. Stop Live Forms and the Insight Server through the Computer Management Services console if they are running as Window's services.

  5. Backup the forms database from your current
    Frevvoproduct
    installation.
  6. Backup the current

    Frevvoproduct
     server's installation directory so that you have a copy of all custom configuration parameters.

    Warning

    If you are using SQL Server as your Live Forms database, it is highly recommended that you turn on the READ COMMITTED SNAPSHOT setting in the database BEFORE performing the upgrade to

    Frevvoproduct
    v7.2.

    You do not have to do this if you are using MySQL or Oracle databases because this option is turned on by default.

    There are two ways to turn on the option:

    1. Using DDL ( Data Definition Language) - Run the commands listed below:

      Code Block
      ALTER DATABASE <your frevvo database schema> - replace <your frevvo database schema> with the name of your frevvo database schema SET READ_COMMITTED_SNAPSHOT ON
    2. Using SQL Server Management Studio:
      1. Turn on the “Is Read Committed Snapshot On” Option under database properties.
  7. Install a fresh v7.2.x
    Frevvoproduct
     server:
  8. Request a v7 license if you are upgrading from a
    Frevvoproduct
    version prior to v7.0.x.
  9. Download the latest v7.2.x software.The download is a zip file. Extract the contents to any folder of your choice. This folder will be referred to as <frevvo-home> (note that the zip already contains a top level frevvo folder).
  10. If you increased Memory Settings in your previous installation, make those changes to the appropriate files in the v7.4.x installation. Refer to Hardware and Memory Requirements for the details
  11. Navigate to <frevvo-home>\tomcat\conf\server.xml in the v7.2.x directory structure.

    Warning

    Database configuration is done in the <frevvo-home>\tomcat\conf\server.xml file. The database resource name was changed to jdbc/sharedfrevvoDS in v7.0. When you configure your database, make the changes to the v7.2.x server.xml. Do not copy configured sections from a frevvo.xml of a previous release into the v7.2.x server.xml file.

  12. Configure the Database
    1. Select your database type
    2. Refer to the Configure the Connection URL topic to point the v7.2.x frevvo database to your current frevvo database. Remember to add the sendStringParametersAsUnicode property with a value of false to your database connection URL if it is not already there.
  13. If you made changes to the Default Port in previous releases, make those changes again in the v7.2 server.xml file.
  14. Add any other changes to the v7.2.x server.xml file.
  15. Save the changes to the server.xml file.
  16. Install a JDBC Driver.
  17. Navigate to <frevvo-home>/tomcat/conf/Catalina/localhost/frevvo.xml in the v7.2 directory structure.
    1. Configure Email
    2. Configure the Proxy Server if applicable
    3. Refer to Installation Tasks for information about additional configuration parameters that can be added to the frevvo.xml file to take advantage of

      Frevvoproduct
      features.

      1. We recommend that any changes that were made to the web.xml file in previous releases be moved to frevvo.xml instead.
    4. Compare the frevvo.users.schemaName property in the frevvo.xml file from the version of
      Frevvoproduct
      you are upgrading from to the frevvo.xml file in v7.2 installation directory. If they are not the same, copy the frevvo.users.schemaName property from <frevvo-home>\tomcat\conf\catalina\localhost\frevvo.xml to the v7.2 <frevvo-home>\tomcat\conf\catalina\localhost\frevvo.xml.
    5. Save the changes to frevvo.xml.
  18. If you are upgrading from v7.0+ or v7.1+ and you made changes to the <frevvo-home>/tomcat/conf/Catalina/localhost/insight.xml file, make those changes in the <frevvo-home>/tomcat/conf/Catalina/localhost/insight.xml file in your v7.2 installation. You can skip this step if you are upgrading from a version of
    Frevvoproduct
    previous to v7.0
  19. If you are upgrading from v7.1+, restore the contents of the <frevvo-home>\data\solr directory from the previous version installation directory backup that you made in Step 6 to your v7.2 <frevvo-home>\data directory. This step is only necessary if you are upgrading from v7.1+

    Info

    If you do not restore the Insight server index files located in the <frevvo-home>\data\solr directory, you can run the Manage Insight Data Batch job manually once the upgrade is complete to regenerate them. The batch job should be run after hours when your users are not using your forms/flows.

  20. Follow the steps for your Operating system to start the Insight server BEFORE starting 

    Frevvoproduct
    .

    Info
    • All database initialization and/or required upgrade will be automatically done by frevvo.war as part of the
