Upgrading Zephyr Enterprise Edition on Linux

Created on


You're running Zephyr Enterprise on a Linux server and you want to upgrade to a newer version. This article will cover how to do so in as few steps as possible.

This process will be the same for both Debian-based (Debian, Ubuntu) or Red Hat-based (RHEL, CentOS, etc).


Step 1: Backup

Before upgrading you need to make sure you take a complete backup of Zephyr's data. This can only be done outside of Zephyr and requires a brief period of downtime.

In order to take a complete backup of Zephyr on Linux, browse to /[your path to zephyr]/backup_restore/bin/ and look for backupAll.sh. This script will temporarily shut down Zephyr, take a copy of all data inside the database, and restart Zephyr upon completion.


Step 2: Upgrade

With your backup taken launch the upgrader and follow the given prompts. It will ask for the location of your backup file. Remember, this is the backup file we just created in step 1. The upgrader will not take a hot backup.


Step 3: Run

After the upgrade is complete, Zephyr will start and you can resume normal usage. If you downloaded the upgrader from our site at getzephyr.com right before installing, you'll be on the latest available version.
