Forgive me for assuming, but I have a working install, stand-alone SolidCP on a new server done recently – on 1/25/2018. I had assumed that upgrading the installer to 1.4 would then give me an easy or obvious route to install and upgrade from 1.3. to 1.4. But that appears to not be the case? Unless I am missing some steps or conditions or pre-work? I poked around looking for help or docs or something but didn’t find anything relevant.
What am I missing? What is the correct process and steps for getting from a clean, recent install of 1.3 to 1.4?
I do already have the installer upgraded to 1.4, but when I try to install the SolidCP Standalone Server Setup 1.4.0 on my existing 1.3 setup it fails the checks telling me IIS is already using ports and stuff that it wants to use.

Not sure what process you went through but just do a manual update, its the safest method:
It sounds like you re-installed the installer.
It therefor does not see any installed modules, only modules “available” for install.
Since you already have it installed but more or less “forgot” the installers config it errors out.
One way is to manually fix up the installer config with all variables found in the web.config of each site using this example: http://installer.solidcp.com/Files/stable/Tools/SolidCP.Installer.exe.zip
Another way would be the manual update way JimJams suggested.
And the last way is automatic update via powershell script: http://installer.solidcp.com/Files/stable/Tools/SolidCP-Auto-Upgrade-Tool-1.6.zip
This one might error on the SQL backup depending on configuration so make sure to make one before you start. other then that run it from the Enterprise server server, and make sure your enterprise server has network access to all SolidCP Server locations (\ipc$SolidCPServer)
You are correct, I did. Not sure how that seemed logical to me at the time, but yes, the interface seemed very similar to WebsitePanel (which I haven’t seen/upgraded in years) and I somehow could not trigger it to tell me to upgrade the installer to 1.4, so I eventually just installed 1.4 thinking it would naturally upgrade. Oops. All fixed now though, thank you!
