Note: Note: We recommend performing a full backup of the database prior to upgrade. Refer to the admin guide for instructions. If you are upgrading your existing MEE server it is important to log in with the built-in admin account first and ensure you have the correct credentials. After performing an upgrade, legacy created administrator accounts will default to read only and will not be able to log into the MEE server. You will need to log in with the built-in admin account and set the new permissions for all the legacy administrator user accounts. This note does not apply to new installations of MEE. If you have any questions please contact support.
