2. Click setup.exe to upgrade VigorACS 2 (Path: \ACS\ACS):

3. Select MySQL/MariaDB Path: When program prompts to select the path of MySQL, you must choose the correct directory.

4. Choose Database Install Type: You could choose either Rebuild or Upgrade Database. If you want to keep the existed data, please select Upgrade Database

- Rebuild Database: If you install the VigorACS 2 for the first time, please choose Rebuild Database to create a new one. (Note: Rebuild Database will clean all of the data in the TR-069 database, please confirm you are the new user or only want to upgrade ACS version.)
- Upgrade Database: If you only need to upgrade the ACS from the old version, please select the Upgrade Database.

5. MySQL/MariaDB password setting: Enter the MySQL password which you have already set up. We could press the Check password button to verify if the password is correct. If you forgot the password, you might refer the document here to retrieve the MySQL password from VigorACS setting.

6. Install influxDB: If you upgrade the ACS version from 2.3.3(or older one) to ACS2.4.0(or above), please install the influxDB. Specify the path to install the influxDB. The program will install the influxDB service at the same time.If you have already installed the influxDB, please remember to specify the same location as before.

How to check if the VigorACS 2 services started successfully?
