What's new in macOS Server

Learn about the changes included in macOS Server 5.8.

macOS Server 5.8 requires macOS Mojave 10.14 or later. After installing the macOS update, you can get macOS Server from the App Store. (To prevent interruption of services, new versions of Server aren't installed automatically, even when App Store preferences are set to install other updates automatically.)

During installation, you might see the message ”Server app replacement detected.” This is expected. All Server settings and data are preserved during the update, and you can use the Server app to finish setting up previously configured services after the update.

If you're upgrading from macOS Server 5.6.3 or earlier, learn about changes introduced in macOS Server 5.7.1.
