Backup sossvr.prp file before upgrading SOS 5.0 Server

Post by lbauer » Fri Jun 18, 2010 10:51 am

When upgrading a previous version of SourceOffSite 5.0 Server, the server properties file could be overwritten by the installer. For the SourceOffSite Server Upgrade installation you should:
  • Make a backup of the sossvr.prp file in your SourceOffSite 5 Server installation directory.
  • Install the server.
  • Overwrite the sossvr.prp file created by the server installation with the BACKUP file.

On some installations, failure to make a backup of the sossvr.prp file may leave your SourceOffSite in state where you need to re-input license keys and recreate SourceOffSite users.
