This guide will walk you through upgrading your Lobby Track Intranet 8 installation to the latest version. The process is very similar to installation with the additional steps of backing up and restoring app data.

Backup App Data Folder

  1. Open Windows Explorer.
  2. Go to the folder where Lobby Track Intranet 8 is installed, typically C:\inetpub\wwwroot.
  3. Copy the App_Data folder to your desktop.
  4. Verify that the folder on your desktop contains the config files, membership.sdf, workstation.sqlite and jolly.log.

Upgrade Lobby Track Intranet

  1. Obtain the latest web deployment package, LobbyTrackIntranet8Setup.exe, from the Jolly Support Team.
  2. Copy the package to the IIS server where Lobby Track Intranet 8 is currently installed.
  3. Run the exe to extract the zip archive.
  4. Edit LobbyTrackIntranet.SetParameters.xml using a text editor such as Notepad.
  5. Locate
    <setParameter name="IIS Web Application Name" value="Default Web Site/lobbytrack" />
  6. Set the value to the URL that you use to access the app. The site name portion must match the name of the website as configured in IIS.
    Examples:
    value="visitor.company.com" access at http://visitor.company.com
    value="visitor.company.com/lobbytrack", http://visitor.company.com/lobbytrack
  7. Save the file.
  8. Open PowerShell using Run As Administrator.
  9. In PowerShell, cd to the directory where you extracted the LobbyTrackIntranet.deploy script.
  10. Run the deployment script in test mode using the command
    .\LobbyTrackIntranet.deploy /t
  11. If there are any errors, make the appropriate corrections
  12. Run the deployment script in deployment mode using the command
    .\LobbyTrackIntranet.deploy /y

Restore App Data Folder

  1. Open Windows Explorer.
  2. Go to the application folder where Lobby Track Intranet 8 is installed, typically C:\inetpub\wwwroot.
  3. Copy the App_Data folder from your desktop to the application folder, replacing the existing folder and files.
