Install and Upgrade

Installation or Upgrade of Learn is a straightforward process provided you have read and understand the installation or upgrade requirements and processes.

Learn 9.1 April 2014 is based on an Apache™ Tomcat-only architecture, which no longer requires the installation of an HTTPD service (Apache or IIS). As a result, this release requires specific operating system configuration changes prior to installation that were not necessary for previous versions of Learn. This release also requires  delivery over HTTPS. Please read the Release Notes and the TLS Configuration topics completely before proceeding.
