Install the RoboHelp Server update and update the RoboHelp client

Download and install RoboHelp Server 9.0.1 update

  1. Stop the Apache Tomcat server.

  2. For each context, delete the contents of the corresponding <RHS-Install-Dir>/<Context-Name>/server/resource folder.

    Since RoboHelp Server uses each resource folder as a cache folder, once you delete the content of these folders, RoboHelp Server copies the updated files.

  3. Download and extract the RoboHelp Server update relevant to your Windows OS.

    Download

  4. In the relevant extracted folder, navigate to the update installer:

    AdobePatchInstaller.exe

  5. To apply the RoboHelp Server update, run the installer and follow the install instructions.

  6. Restart the Apache Tomcat server.

The updated files are copied to the existing context area, or any newly created context would have all the updates automatically.
