The following instructions will help you upgrade your version of EasyBox

Before you begin deploying the EasyBox Database, navigate to the /Database/Upgrade folder under the installation files folder and copy Updgrade_v1.x.x.sql to the server where SQL Server Management Studio is installed. The version of the file you want to select is the version that is currently installed. For example if the current version of the database that is deployed is v1.4.2, copy Updgrate_v1.4.2.sql to server where SQL Server Management Studio is installed.

  1. Open SQL Server Management Studio and connect to the server where the database is going to be deployed

  2. On the menu click File > Open > File… and open the recently copied over Updgrade_v1.x.x.sql file

  3. On the menu click Query > SQLCMD Mode
  4. In the script, modify the DatabaseName to name of the deployed EasyBox Database
  5. On the menu click Query > Execute

Note: When executing the upgrade script make sure it is running in the context of the EasyBox Database


In order to upgrade the service, copy over all the contents except for the web.config file from the Service folder in the installation files folder to the target physical path of the EasyBox Service site.

Note: In this release, only http and net.tcp bindings are supported with a Security Mode of None. Please conform your bindings as needed if you have customized them significantly
