In this case, you will need to uninstall the previous version of the software before you install the new one.
If access to the Configuration Panel is protected by a password on the version that is already installed, the update cannot be performed using the graphical interface of the installation program. In this case, the following screen is displayed:
You can either delete the password protecting access to the Configuration Panel, then proceed with the update, or perform the update in the command line using the TGBCONF_ADMINPASSWORD property (refer to the “Deployment Guide”).
