Upgrading on RedHat 5

Before you upgrade HAPEE to a newer version in the same branch, check that the following conditions apply:

  • the directory names do not change
  • the configuration files are located in the same place
  • the init scripts keep the same names
  • each version in a branch is mutually exclusive, which means that another HAPEE version and HAPEE 1.6r2 cannot be installed together on the same server
  • HAPEE repositories, GPG key, and customer subscription key remain the same

Upgrade HAPEE

You must run this procedure on the slave load-balancer.

1. Save the current configuration (1.x):

cp -rp /etc/hapee-1.x /etc/hapee-1.x.save

2. Remove the old packages:

yum remove hapee-*

3. Install the new packages:

yum install hapee-1.6r2-*

4. Copy the saved configuration:

cp -rpf /etc/hapee-1.x.save /etc/hapee-1.x

5. Restart required HAPEE services using init scripts.
