Upgrading the CTPView Software for Systems Running Version 3.4R2-p1 or 3.4R3 or Later

This topic describes how to upgrade systems that run CTPView Server Software Release 3.4R2-p1 or 3.4R3 or later to CTPView Server Software Release 7.0 and later

To install the CTPView Server oftware for systems running 3.4R2-p1 or 3.4R3 or later:

  1. Use Secure Copy Protocol (SCP) to copy the web_update or ctpview_complete file to the /tmp directory on the server.
  2. Log in to the server shell. On CentOS systems, log in as system administrator.
  3. Run the installation script as root: upgrade or as system administrator: upgrade.

Note: When upgrading CentOS 5.3 systems running a release earlier than CTPView Release 4.2, you are prompted to enter the MySQL administrator’s password. This password is needed to upgrade the database structures. If you do not enter the correct password, the upgrade process continues, but the server remains usable with limited MySQL functionality. In this case, to complete the upgrade process you need to manually initiate the database structure upgrade script from the CTPView CLI menu. The path to this function is Menu > MySQL Functions > Upgrade Database Structures.
