Installing a new build of Zulu.
If you've downloaded a new build of Zulu, installing it is almost the same as what you did when you first installed.
Log into your FileMaker Server and stop the Web Publishing Engine.
Note that you can get to the FileMaker Server Admin Console by opening a web browser and entering http://<host>:16000 where <host> is the IP address or domain name of the master machine in your FileMaker Server deployment.
Uninstalling the Plugin Version
Prior to version 1.018, Zulu included two installation options, a server-side plugin and a servlet. So many of the new features require the servlet version that we've dropped the older plugin option. So navigate to the Web Publishing plugins folder on your server...
...and remove the old version of the plugin.
Using the Installer
Next, run the installer, selecting Uninstall if that is an option, to remove the old build. Now run the installer to install the new build of Zulu just as you did the first time, restarting the web publishing engine when you're finished.
Remember that if you used to employ the plugin version, this new version of Zulu doesn't require port 8040 in your urls, so you'll need to make a quick change to your publish script, and tell your users that you have new urls: more here.
Custom or Hosted Deployments
A note about customized installations. If you've modified Zulu.xml this will will not be overwritten by the new installer, so your settings there will persist. However, if you need parameters included in newer version of Zulu.xml (you know who you are) you can either remove Zulu.xml before reinstalling, or copy and paste the new additional parameters into your copy of Zulu.xml That file can be found here:

If you were using Zulu calendars on your iPhone or iPad prior to iOS 5, you'll want to delete and recreate your calendar accounts on those devices after upgrading to the newest build of Zulu.You won't need to do this every time, just the first time you move from pre iOS 5 to the new builds.
