Splunk DB Connect: How to properly upgrade from 2.1.2 to 3.0.1?

Path Finder

We are currently at v2.1.2 of Splunk DB Connect running on our heavy forwarder in a distributed environment. I want to upgrade to eventually get to version 3.0.1 but the upgrade path says to upgrade to 2.4.0 then migrate to 3.0.1 (I'm assuming because of the config file changes and the migration scripts). I don't see any information for going to 2.4.0 from 2.1.2 though. In Manage Apps next to 2.1.2, it has a hyperlink to update to 3.0.1 but I know I don't want to do that because i have to stop at 2.4.0 on the way.

Do I just install app from file to upgrade to 2.4.0? I've tar'd up the Splunk DB Connect directory in case something goes wrong.

Thanks!

from 2.1.2 to 2.4.0 should be an in-place upgrade, no migration script necessary. Backing up before changing is absolutely a best practice, of course.

What do you mean by in-place upgrade? I too am facing this issue. Should I just install 2.4 from file or does "in-place upgrade" mean something else?
Thanks in advance
