Leave the default install type as In-Place. Check the correct SquaredUp DS instance is going to be upgraded. You can click edit to see more details.
The installer automatically chooses the appropriate install type:
In-Place - If the installer detects a version of SquaredUp DS Standalone is already installed then it will default to an In-Place upgrade, meaning that it will upgrade the current instance.
For example, if you already have v5.0.1 installed and you want to upgrade to v5.1, you should leave the install type as the default of In-place.
If you do not wish to upgrade the existing installation you can click edit and choose New installation. See How to install SquaredUp DS Standalone using the installer
