Getting Started - Upgrade

You can request the latest update from the support department / [email protected]

The actual version is visible on the top of the main page of the Q-net application:


1. Stop Application Server

If Q-net software is running on a Windows server, log into that server.

right click the System Service for the Q-net Pro 6

and choose Stop service from the popup menu to stop it.

If Q-net Pro 6 is running on a Linux or Unix server, there is

unfortunately no standard way for shutting down the server.

Ask the server administrator to shut it down.

We highly recommend to do the upgrade process out of opening hours,

when have enough time to test the system properly.

2. Make a backup of the database, using database manager.

This backup can be restored in case any problem occurs and it is necessary

to restore the original version.

3. Remove the current Q-net Pro 6 deployment

In the directory [installation dir]/webapps,

there should be a file named qnet6.war. Move this file to a backup location

completely outside of the webapps directory. DO NOT rename this file!

4. Deploy the new “qnet6.war” file

To deploy the new qnet6.war file,

copy it into the [installation dir]/webapps/ directory.

5. Start Application Server

On a Windows server, right click the System Service for the Q-net Pro 6

and choose Start service from the popup menu. For a Unix or Linux server, ask the

server administrator to restart the server.

6. Verify the newly-deployed Q-net software version

To verify that the new version of software has been properly deployed,

open the Q-net Pro 6 landing page and check the version displayed.

During the deployment, users should be locked out of the system,

so plan this well in advance and during off-peak hours.
