Trying to Ugrade Crowd from 2.8.3 to 2.9.7

I am trying to Upgrade Crowd from version 2.8.3 to 2.9.7.

I have followed the instructions on this site:


This is on a Windows server, and when I execute the "start_crowd.bat" Tomcat starts up and runs, but I can't see that the

Version on the Crowd site (http://localhost:8095/crowd/) changes. It still is 2.8.3.


The application is running on an application server and the Database is running on a dedicated MS SQL server.


I have altered the "" file on "C:\Crowd\atlassian-crowd-2.9.7\crowd-webapp\WEB-INF\classes"

To pint to the existing home directory.


And copied the existing "" file to the "C:\Crowd\atlassian-crowd-2.9.7\crowd-openidserver-webapp\WEB-INF\classes" folder (installation folder).


And then executed the "start_crowd.bat" file.


I can't see any errors, but nothing changes.


Can you please point out what I am doing wrong?

PS: I have taken a copy of the home folder and backed up the database.


Kind regards

@Ariel Cancinois there any particular reason why you are not upgrading to the latest Crowd version 3.2 ?

The customer that wants the upgrade asked particular for that version.

I have suggested to try a newest version.

but do you think it can do the trick?
