First, stop the InterMapper service from running. This can be accomplished from accessing the InterMapper Control Center on Mac or Windows. The command line for Linux is: sudo /etc/init.d/intermapperd stop
Once the service has been stopped, we recommend making a backup of the Intermapper Settings folder. This provides a fallback solution in case you encounter any issues in the update. Since the IM Settings folders tend to huge in file size due to unpruned log files and accumulated chart data, it can take a long time to complete the backup. At a minimum, we suggest making a backup of the Maps folder along with the Preferences file. Both are located in the Intermapper Settings folder.
Below are the locations of the InterMapper Settings depending on your operating system:
Windows: C:\ProgramData\InterMapper\InterMapper Settings
Linux: As specified in intermapperd.conf (Usually /var/local/InterMapper_Settings/) In 6.6.0 and higher Intermapper Settings default location is /var/opt/helpsystems/intermapper/InterMapper_Settings.
Mac OS: As specified in /etc/intermapperd.conf (Usually /Library/Application Support/InterMapper Settings/)
Note: The InterMapper daemon or service should be stopped while copying the settings folder.
After the backup of the Intermapper settings folder has been completed it is now safe to Install the latest version. If you are a current user, access the download from the community portal. Double-click InterMapper Setup and follow the instructions. You must be an Administrator to install this software. Note: If you are installing a 64-bit version, you must uninstall any previous 32-bit version before you run the installer. The InterMapper Settings folder is compatible with the new 64-bit version; you may want to back it up before you uninstall the previous version.
When the installer finishes, it starts the InterMapper GUI client, so you can view and configure your InterMapper Server.
