Installation Packages:

Documentation:
Full book in A4 format. Requires Adobe Acrobat Reader for on screen reading or high quality printing.

Upgrading the Windows version:

To upgrade from the previous version, download Abyss Web Server 1.0.7 TP and run the installer. It will detect the presence of an older version and will ask you to uninstall it. Once the old version removed, the installer will setup the new version.

CAUTION: Be careful and read all the on-screen dialog boxes. In fact, the uninstaller will ask you if you want to remove Abyss Web Server's setup directory. You must answer NO to keep your web site and your configuration file.

Upgrading the Linux version:

Download Abyss Web Server 1.0.7 TP package, go to the directory where Abyss Web Server is installed and execute the following commands (which purpose is replacing the old application files with newer ones):

mv htdocs/index.html htdocs/index.html.bak
cd ..
tar xfz abws107.tgz
cd abyssws
mv htdocs/index.html.bak htdocs/index.html

If errors are reported when executing the first and the last command, ignore them. Obviously, they occurred because you have no index.html file in the htdocs directory.
