Updating the HFSQL server

The CLOUD for PC SOFT applications allows you to benefit from the HFSQL server to share databases anywhere in the world, from any application (iOS, Android, Site, Desktop, ...)

Note: From version 19, HFSQL is the new name for HyperFileSQL.

When a new version of HFSQL is available, how to update the HFSQL server of the platform ?

The process is straightforward.



As soon as a HFSQL update is available in level 2 of validation, the update of the HFSQL server is automatically proposed in the CLOUD dashboard. 

You can decide whether you want to perform this update or not.

Note: To update a platform to a later major version (from version 18 to version 19 for example), see the guide Updating to major version.


You must have:

- the identifier 

- and the password of the PCSCloud account.

The identifier and password have been supplied in the confirmation email when creating the PCSCloud account. 


- Connect yourself to the CLOUD dashboard, at the following address: https://pcscloud.net/dashboard/.

- In the list of platforms at the top, click the platform (for PC SOFT applications) you want to manage.

- Below, in the description table of the platform, on the "HFSQL server" row, you will find out its current version.  

When a HFSQL update is available in level 2 of validation, an "Update available" link allows you to perform this update for the platform.

- Click the "Update available" link. 

The update can be performed immediately or it can be performed later at a time when the platform is not used.

Note: During the update, expect a short service interruption.
