Upgrading ConnectWise Control (ScreenConnect) on Ubuntu Server 16.04.3 LTS

ConnectWise released the 6.4 upgrade yesterday and I realized I have not yet done a post on the upgrade process.  It’s rather straight forward, but why not.

1.) Navigate to the ConnectWise Download Page and copy the link address for the latest stable release.

2.) From your shell, run the following command to download the file.  I typically download it to the tmp directory for easy clean up.

3.) Then extract the contents.

4.) Move into the extracted directory and run the install.sh script found there.

5.) It will then ask you a few quick questions as seen below.  Answer them and you are done.  Simple!
