Upgrading bundled installation


I have a standard bundled postgres apache windows installation of 6.3, and I'm following the upgrade 6.3 - 6.4 guide. 6.3 instance is installed to C:\Jaspersoft\jasperreports-server-cp-6.3.0 and i have unzipped 6.4 binaries to C:\Jaspersoft\jasperreports-server-cp-6.4.0 . It says to edit the properties of 6.4 file default_master.properties and point to your tomcat instance. My tomcat instance is in my bundled 6.3 install folder. Am I supposed to point the 6.4 install to the 6.3 application instance?

The upgrade guide assumes non bundled upgrade.

Th upgrade guide assumes non-bundled install because we really don't recommend upgrading the bundled install.  You can try pointing it at the bundled Tomcat from 6.3, but among other things, that means you'll have two server instances under the same tomcat, which means you have to choose a different port, a different service name, etc, etc.  Also, in general, we don't recommend using the bundled install for a production server, although people sometimes do.
