This guide instructs how to upgrade H-Sphere Windows software to 2.4.3 Patch 7 from 2.3.1 Patch 9 and up.

Update Requirements

  1. Make sure your H-Sphere Windows module has version 2.3.1 Patch 9 or higher.
    Open the file [Disk]:\\HSphere\scripts\consts.inc and check the parameters.
    If the version is older, update it to 2.3.1 Patch 9 or higher.
  2. Open SOAP port 10125 for data communication between Control Panel and Windows server.
    Important: if you're using Serv-U FTP service, make sure to disable SOAP feature in the hsphere.properties file on the Control Panel box. Currently, H-Sphere with Serv-U installed doesn't support SOAP. Note that Serv-U is incompatible with H-Sphere 2.5 and up.

Update Procedure

  1. Update your Webshell to version 4 if you have an older version.
  2. Download H-Sphere Windows 2.4.3 Patch 7 at:
  3. Run the file you have downloaded (HSInst243p7.exe) to upgrade H-Sphere Winbox to 2.4.3 Patch 7.
  4. 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.
  5. Optionally, install Pdb package for this Winbox version to log H-Sphere module's source information for crash reporting. Download the self-extracted archive to the <H-Sphere dir>\pdb directory and extract the files there. Read more in Crash Reporting.
  6. Contact support and inform us about the upgrade. This is required to get appropriate support from PSoft.
