Usually you just need to download and run the VisualSVN Server installer to
upgrade the server. Please, read the article KB161: Upgrading to VisualSVN
Server 4.2 <https://www.visualsvn.com/support/topic/00161/> before
beginning the upgrade. The article includes pre- and post- upgrade
checklists to ensure smooth upgrade.
