This guide instructs how to upgrade H-Sphere Windows software from 2.3.1, 2.3.2, 2.4 Betas, RC 1, 2.4 Final and 2.4 Patches 1 and 2 to 2.4 Patch 3.


  1. Make sure your H-Sphere Windows module has version 2.3.1 or higher:
    Open the file [Disk]:\\HSphere\scripts\consts.inc and check the parameters:
    // the current version
    version = 2.31

    If the version is older, update it to version 2.3.1 or higher.
  2. Open SOAP port 10125 for data communication between Control Panel and Windows server.
  3. Important: if you're using Serv-U FTP service, make sure to disable SOAP feature in hsphere.properties. Currently, H-Sphere with Serv-U installed doesn't support SOAP.

  2. Run the file you have downloaded (HSInst24p3.exe) to upgrade H-Sphere to 2.4 Patch 3.
  3. After the H-Sphere upgrade, IIS will still run some modules of earlier versions. Restart IIS whenever it is convenient to ensure you run the updated modules.
  4. Update your Webshell to version 4.
  5. Optionally, install Pdb package for this Winbox version. Read more in Crash Reporting.
