The upgrade of Access Commander should always be done incrementally, with each upgrade being made to the next sequential version, rather than jumping from a very old version to the latest one. Upgrades between versions are usually performed online via the ‚settings‘ section of Access Commander’s web interface. The exception to this is the upgrade between version 1.9.1 and 1.10.0.  This step involves some fundamental changes to the Linux operating environment, so this upgrade is only possible offline by a parallel deployment of the new version. Upgrade from the version 1.10.0 of Access Commander to newer versions is once again possible onlinevia the web interface.
