Before you begin the migration process:
Determine Your Upgrade Path
Please follow the instructions on this page, to perform your upgrade.
does not support the use of HSQLDB for use beyond demo/trials of the Live Forms software. If by mistake you continued to use the demo/trial HSQLDB database for production use, you will need to first migrate your data to one of supported production databases BEFORE you can use the automated migration scripts to upgrade to later versions of Live Forms.
Please read the following upgrade steps prior to starting the migration.
v7 License Key Required:
A v7 license key is required for this version of if you are upgrading from a version prior to v7.0. Request a v7 license by emailing email@example.com BEFORE you begin the upgrade. v5 and v6 licenses will not work.
Please read and understand the Migration Considerations which may require your action before beginning.
Stop the server using <frevvo-home>\stop-frevvo.[bat,sh].
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
Stop Live Forms and the Insight Server through the Computer Management Services console if they are running as Window's services.
Backup the current server's installation directory so that you have a copy of all custom configuration parameters.
If you are using
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:
Navigate to <frevvo-home>\tomcat\conf\server.xml in the v7.2.x directory structure.
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.
Refer to Installation Tasks for information about additional configuration parameters that can be added to the frevvo.xml file to take advantage of features.
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+
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.
Follow the steps for your Operating system to start the Insight server BEFORE starting .
Open a command prompt. Navigate to <frevvo-home>\solr-5.4.1. Type bin\solr.cmd start to run the Insight server in the background, listening on the default port 8983.
You will see this message:
If you close the Insight server (Solr) startup window, the server will stop running. Leave the window open or go to Step 10 for instructions to remove existing services and.
Type this command: If your service name has spaces in it, use quotes around the service name.
sc delete <ServiceName>
If you are running Live Forms for Confluence please follow the same instructions above to upgrade your server. Please refer to the Confluence Add-on Release Notes compatibility matrix. The server and the Confluence Add-on versions must match. If you do not find your Confluence server version in the Confluence Add-on Release Notes compatibility matrix, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
It is recommended that you do not change or delete the frevvo.users.schemaName property in frevvo.xml after the first startup of v7.2.x. If the property is changed or deleted post migration you may see this error:
Follow these steps to rectify the situation:
You may see an unexpected error due to a misconfiguration. One likely cause is that you have copied an older version of frevvo.xml or web.xml from your old Live Forms server into your new Live Forms server. The upgrade will detect this error and alert you that an upgrade error may have occurred. To solve this replace frevvo.xml and/or web.xml with the version that came with your new Live Forms software. To transfer configuration customizations from your old server software to you new server, edit frevvo.xml and/or web.xml and copy the changes over manually.
If you start before the Insight server, you will see this message when you browse the login URL. Follow these steps to start the servers in the correct order:
If you're applying a minor patch update, for example, applying patch 7.2.x to your installed v7.2.x Live Forms server, you can follow these simple steps instead of the more lengthy upgrade steps.
The latest major version and latest connector versions are available on the public Software Downloads page.
Copy the \temp\frevvo\tomcat\webapps\frevvo.war file.
Replace the frevvo.war file in your installation with the one copied above.
If you made any configuration changes in the web.xml file inside the frevvo.war, we recommend that the configuration context parameters be moved to the <frevvo-home>\tomcat\conf\localhost\frevvo.xml instead. This keeps all your changes in one place and makes migration to major new versions easier. If you choose not to move the configuration to frevvo.xml, you can follow the steps here to make the changes in the v7.2.x web.xml or you can just copy the old web.xml and replace the new one with it.
Delete everything inside \frevvo\tomcat\temp directory of your installation.
Start the Insight server. Refer to Step 19 above for the instructions.
