Server Upgrade

Upgrading to SourceOffSite Server 5.0 from any SourceOffSite 4.0, 4.1, or 4.2 server 1 is as easy as running the SourceOffSite Server 5.0 installer and following the directions given by the installation wizard. Be sure to exit any instances of the Server running on your system before launching the installer.

Due to changes in the underlying technology of the product and installer, SourceOffSite 5.0 will not upgrade a previous installation. Also, SourceOffSite 5.0 serial numbers are not compatible with earlier versions of SourceOffSite. To use the SourceOffSite Server 5.0, you will need to upgrade your existing serial numbers.

In order to avoid losing information about server setup, SourceGear recommends installing SourceOffSite 5.0 before uninstalling SourceOffSite 4.  In this way, information used by the server manager will not be deleted during the SourceOffSite 4.0 uninstall process.  Once the SourceOffSite 5.0 Server Manager is correctly configured, then uninstall SourceOffSite 4.  

If you wish to run SourceOffSite 4 and SourceOffSite 5 servers simultaneously, note that the new installation must be configured to run on a separate pair of ports to avoid conflict.  

Note that while SourceOffSite 4.2 clients can communicate with SourceOffSite 5.0 servers, the reverse is not true. SourceOffSite 5.0 clients cannot communicate with SourceOffSite 4.2 servers.  Therefore, it is necessary to upgrade the SourceOffSite server first in order to prevent any interruption for those users have not yet upgraded their client. Users running older clients can still connect to the upgraded SourceOffSite 5 server.
