To deploy a new PoolParty webapp, follow the steps described below.

Note

These instructions assume you are deploying a PoolParty default installation in these paths:

  • GNU/Linux: /opt/poolparty

  • Windows: C:/Programs/Apache Software Foundation/Tomcat 7.0/

Before you upgrade, make sure you have a working backup of your existing installation.

Upgrade Process

STEP 1: Undeploy the PoolParty webapp via the Tomcat Web Application Manager

  • Windows: C:/Programs/Apache Software Foundation/Tomcat 7.0/webapps

Optional: If in addition to the webapps libraries are provided in the download area, copy them to the lib folder and remove the old versions of the same libraries.
