Lost Config after Upgrades

I've noticed an annoying issue that after I do a manual upgrade of SQL Monitor, I seem to lose some key config for the service, specifically the HTTPS config.

After upgrade I can no longer view the web page, and instead first have to go to backup (if i forget) or copy/paste the old version of the krestel config file to restore my HTTPS config.   Why is this removed on in-place upgrades?

    Hi @SternalLime626,

    The only files that should be overwritten are in the %ProgramFiles% installation directory.  To customise the kestrel web config you should copy the webservers.kestrel.config file from there to the %ProgramData%\Red Gate\SQL Monitor directory (hidden by default at C:\ProgramData) which should not be overwritten on update.

    Kind regards,

    I'll have to confirm.  The last update i did, I believe this is what it overwrote with a non configured HTTPS version.  But I'll double / triple check this time.
