2. Installation #

3. Upgrading #

When upgrading there are additional considerations:

  • major version upgrades should be performed in a lab before deploying to production, for example moving from enPortal v4.x to v5.x (see Upgrading from Legacy enPortal). Once any differences have been dealt with, a new version archive can be produced and be used when upgrading to production.
  • ensure you have a full archive before starting (see Backup and Recovery)
  • perform a clean installation, then restore the archive. i.e. never uncompress a new version of the product over the top of an existing install unless directed by support.

4. Running enPortal #

Refer to the OS specific installation guides above for starting/stopping enPortal. Please see the Accessing enPortal page to access enPortal once it’s running.
