Upgrade the installation


  1. Download the latest version of EWA from our website.

  2. Extract the zip file to a temporary location.
  3. Stop the whole site or specific application pool in IIS to take the site offline.
  4. Browse to the location of your EWA installation in windows explorer and remove all of the files except the App_Data folder and the appsettings.json file.
  5. Copy all files from the temporary location into the installation directory.

  6. Click Replace the files in the destination if prompted.

  7. Start the whole site or specific application pool back up to bring the site back online.
If you had modified the web.config previously then you will need to reapply any changes you had in your original web.config file.
