Updating Chronicall

Update Available


Available system updates are displayed from the Chronicall System Status popup.
You also want to be sure to run a backup for your Chronicall Database just as a safety precaution.

Note: Before updating to Chronicall version 3.10 and above, please ensure that your server hosting Chronicall meets at least the necessary minimum specs for the following Chronicall modules (depending, of course, on the modules that you have purchased) Chronicall Base License, Recording Library, and Multimedia. To see if you have the appropriate server specs see this article.

Display Minor Updates

You can also configure the Chronicall System Status popup to display minor version updates via the following steps:

  1. Navigate to Admin (System) > System Settings > Basic Settings.
  2. Set the Notify for minor updates value to True.
  1. Click Save to apply the change.

Download The Update File


Steps

  1. From the Chronicall System Status popup click the Update Available link
    a. You can also visit the Chronicall Downloads page
  2. Enter the Chronicall Serial Key.
    a. Found via Help > About Chronicall
  1. Click Submit
  2. Select the file named Chronicall Update.

Version Skipping

Do not skip major versions when updating. If you are on version 3.6, make sure you are updated to 3.6.56 before updating to 3.8.7. If you are on 3.8, make sure you are updated to 3.8.7 before updating to 3.10/12. You need to be on the 3.8. branch before updating to 3.10.

  1. Select Save File, if prompted.

Important Note

The Chronicall update must be run on the server where Chronicall is installed.

App Installer


On version 3.95 and above, we have a separate app installer as well you will need to download and run after the first time you update to a post 3.95 build. This should also be on the downloads page next to the update and setup files. This is applicable if you are a Recording Library or MultiMedia customer, or if you would like to install a second Realtime Node on another server to assist the main Realtime Node on the main server. This only needs to be done once, as future Chronicall updates will update all other Chronicall related servers, when the main server is updated.

Run the Update

If running update on Linux see the "How to Run Apps Installer on Linux" article

Impact

Chronicall updates do not usually take more than 60 seconds to complete, but you may wish to perform them during low call volume hours in case they take longer.
