Starting the upgrade

To update your regify provider appliance, please log in via SSH (or PuTTY).

In case you log in with root account, you have to enter

providerConfig

to run the appliance menu.

Now select the first menu item "Check for updates". There is a huge list of packages. Use TAB to switch focus to "Yes" and press Enter to start the update. The update process can take up to 10 minutes. If you are running a redundant system, do this directly one after the other on each appliance.

Finishing

The update also updates the kernel of the system, so you need to make a restart after the update has finished. Logged in using SSH (PuTTY), you can restart the appliance using the appliance menu "Appliance..." -> "Other Settings..." -> "Reboot the appliance".

In case you log in with root account, you can also enter

shutdown -r now

Check

Please log in to your web administration now and check for any problems or error messages.

If your regify provider is using text messages (SMS), please go to "Provider maintenance", enter your mobile number to the field at "Test text message sending (SMS)" and click on "Send now". You should receive some test SMS in the next minute. If you encounter problems, please contact us as support(at)regify.com and send us the problem and the content of your main config file ("Web Administration" -> "Manage sub-providers" -> "Edit regify provider main configuration file").
