To upgrade Pro API from older to a newer version, please follow the below steps:

We recommend that you fully test the new version of Pro API. After you are happy that the product works as expected, you can update your integration to point to the new installation by updating the port number to the port number you entered during installation.
Alternatively, if you would prefer not to make changes to your integration, you can modify the port number in the new installation by updating the configuration files (for a list of the settings, see section 2) with the port number used by your previous version of Pro API. You will then need to ensure your previous version of Pro API is not running before starting up the Pro API service. Your integration is now working with the latest version of Pro API.
Finally, uninstall your previous version of Pro API.
