## Running the Installer During Upgrade

To run the installer during upgrade:

1. Back up the portal and Oracle WebCenter Collaboration databases. This enables you to recover your data if there is a problem during upgrade. For more information, see your database documentation.

2. Stop Oracle WebCenter Collaboration.

3. Stop the Search Server, Automation Service, and Document Repository Service.

4. Back up the Document Repository directory on the file system. By default, this directory is located in:

• (UNIX/Linux) /opt/oracle/middleware/wci/ptdr/documents/PTCollab

• (Windows) C:\Oracle\Middleware\wci\ptdr\documents\PTCollab

5. Clear the Embedded Servlet Engine's work directory. This enables you to recover your data if there is a problem during upgrade. By default, this directory is located in:

• (UNIX/Linux) /opt/oracle/middleware/wci/common/container/tomcat/<version>/work

• (Windows) C:\Oracle\Middleware\wci\common\container\tomcat\<version>\work

6. Copy the installer file to the directory where you installed the previous version of Oracle WebCenter Collaboration. This allows the installer to use the silent properties file created by previous installations. For more information on using the silent properties file, see Appendix B, "Silent Properties File."

If you want to install to a new location or do not want to use the silent properties file, you can launch the installer from any location on the Oracle WebCenter Collaboration host machine.

7. Install the Oracle WebCenter Collaboration components as described in Installing the Oracle WebCenter Collaboration Components.

8. (Windows only) When the installer prompts you, reboot the machine. If you do not reboot, certain PATH environment variable changes might not take effect, and you will get errors when you try to deploy and start the applications.
