How to upgrade your Ozeki Phone System

This guide demonstrates how you can upgrade the Ozeki Phone System software manually. Upgrading refers to the process of going from an earlier version of the PBX to the latest version. Manual upgrade can be used if the automatic upgrade is not available for any reason.

Step 1. Copy your original installation

As the first step in the upgrade process, you need to copy your current installation of the Ozeki Phone System. In this way, you can make sure that all your configurations will be available after you have upgraded to the latest version. For this purpose, open the C:Program FilesOzeki directory, select the Ozeki Phone System subdirectory, then press Ctrl+C. Then press Ctrl+V in another directory in which you wish to backup your configuration (Figure 1).
