How to install

OS X Server v3.0.2 is available from the Mac App Store. It will appear in the Updates pane if you have OS X Server (Mavericks) installed. Click the UPDATE button to install. To prevent the interruption of services, Server updates will not be automatically installed even if you have chosen to automatically install updates from the Mac App Store.

During the installation you may see the message "Server app replacement detected." This is a normal part of the update process. All Server settings and data will be preserved during the update.

After installation is complete, open Server app in order to finish setting up your previously-configured services.
