Upgrading

Post by Masher » Fri Jul 11, 2008 10:36 am

All updates will be announced on our website. You can also check for new versions from within the panel. If there are any special instructions for upgrading they will be listed in the upgrade announcement, otherwise these procedures are safe to follow.

Note: Your running gameservers will be unaffected by performing an upgrade of the panel, but users will not be able to access the panel while the panel/monitors are down. If a database upgrade is required, users will not be able to login until an admin logins and the database update is performed by the panel. The monitors will also fail to start if the database isn't upgraded before they start.

Manual Upgrade (Win)
  • Before starting any upgrade, always backup the web control panel/monitor files and the database!
  • Stop the monitor. Enter 'net stop ugccmon' in the run dialog or command prompt. You can also use the services mmc in Control Panel-->Admin Tools
  • Upgrade the panel first. Simply copy the new files over the old. The web.config file will not be overwritten, but the header.inc, footer.inc, and stylesheet files will be. If you modified them you'll want to restore them (you did backup right?) afterwards.
  • Log into the panel with an admin account so that any database updates will be performed.
  • Install the updated monitor by overwriting the existing files with the new ones in the package. Upgrading via the installer is not currently working correctly.
  • Start the monitor. 'net start ugccmon'
  • Your upgrade should be complete. Log into the panel to ensure everything is working correctly.
  • Review the logs and eventviewer for any errors.
Manual Upgrade (Linux)
  • Before starting any upgrade, always backup the web control panel/monitor files and the database!
  • Stop apache or XSP
  • Stop the monitor with the stop.sh script or relevant service commands (systemctl or service command)
  • The upgrade is exactly the same as the windows procedures, overwrite the old files with the new files.
