This guide will upgrade a single node from Signserver Enterprise version 5.10.0 to Signserver Enterprise 5.11.2. In this example, the Signserver host will have an IP Address of 18.104.22.168. Please change this IP address to be the IP Address that matches the Signserver node being upgraded.
Download the Signserver Cloud or Virtual Appliance Upgrade file from your customer download folder or obtain a copy from support at email@example.com.
- Copy the upgrade package to the Signserver node using the following method:
Using the CLI:
If using a Mac or Linux based computer use the following command to copy the file to the host (Note: If using AWS, ensure you specify the user as ec2-user with your SSH key and in Azure, specify the user provisioned with your instance)
scp ~/Downloads/signserver-ee-5.11.2.Final-bin.zip firstname.lastname@example.org:/tmpCODE
SSH to the Signserver VM and login as root
Change directory to the /opt directory
Unzip the upgrade file to the /opt/ directory
Ensure the file extracted into the /opt/ directory by doing a directory listing
Copy the existing config files to the new Signserver install folder overwriting the default files with the existing files.
/bin/cp -f signserver/conf/*.properties signserver-ee-5.11.2.Final/conf/CODE
systemctl stop wildflyCODE
Remove “signserver” symlink
Ensure it asks you to remove symbolic link!
rm: remove symbolic link ‘signserver’?CODE
Create new symbolic link
ln -s signserver-ee-5.11.2.Final signserverCODE
- Ensure the symbolic link points to the new Signserver directory.
Change the ownership of the new Signserver files (ensure the trailing "/" in the command below so the permissions of the directory are changed and not the symlink itself).
chown -R wildfly:wildfly /opt/signserver/CODE
Change directory to /opt/signerver
systemctl start wildflyCODE
- Access the Signserver Admin Web UI and ensure the new version of Signserver is 5.11.2.Final (or the version you are upgrading to.)
