This article concerns upgrading from one minor release of Squared Up to another. If you need assistance in upgrading from version 1.x to version 2.x, please see this article

To upgrade any version of Squared Up, simply run the new setup application on the server where Squared Up is installed.  Download the latest version of Squared Up from here.

The setup application will automatically:

  • Preserve all settings in your web.config file (which includes any changes you have made through IIS Manager)
  • Preserve all user settings
  • Preserve all log files

For an overview of the installation process see Getting Started - Installing Squared Up

To reverse the upgrade, you must uninstall the new version and reinstall the previous version. You will need to backup your folders before completing this, for more information on how to do this see - Remove (uninstall) Squared Up.

After Upgrading

If you are using an independent app pool identity

If you have previously changed the app pool identity, for whatever reason, it will have been reset to NetworkService, and you can change it to your custom account like this:

1. In IIS, click on Application Pools.

2. Right-click on Squaredupv2 and select Advanced Settings.

3. In the Process Model section,

4. Click on the button next to NetworkService and change it to your custom account.

More information on this can be found in the following article, checking and modifying the application pool identity.

If you have a Load Balanced configuration

If you are using mklinks to file share between your Squared Up servers you will need to reconfigure the links to your file share again after upgrading as these will have been wiped, see How to sync dashboards between servers.

Depending on how you are syncing files between servers you may have to re-configure these settings again after upgrading.
