How do I upgrade to iFolder2 properly?

When asked about what to do with Apache choose the middle option. I
don't
recall the phrasing, but it's basically "leave my apache as is" If
you
choose a different option, you will replace your exisiting apache
configuration (with its NetStorage and iFolder setup) with a new one.
The port it wants is the ifolder port (which is also an apache port)

Re: How do I upgrade to iFolder2 properly?

Thank you.

It appears that my main problem with the upgrade is eDirectory
version for LDAP. iFolder2 requires later than DS 8.82 (all but
iFolder
server are 5.1sp5)
