Upgrade ResourceSpace

It is strongly recommended to create a backup before starting the update process. If you have important data, create and try to restore a backup to ensure that everything works properly.

To upgrade the application only without modifying any other stack components, follow the steps below:

  • Back up the stack so that if anything goes wrong, you can restore it. The most important file is config.php, which stores all the ResourceSpace configuration settings.

  • Stop all the services.

      $ sudo /opt/bitnami/ stop
  • Download the latest version of ResourceSpace from the official website. Replace the VERSION placeholder with the correct filename for the version you wish to download.

      $ cd /home/bitnami
      $ git svn clone
  • Copy all files from the new version over the old files in the /opt/bitnami/resourcespace/ ResourceSpace installation directory. Alternatively, remove existing files first (except those in the /filestore directory) and copy the new files to the installation directory, so that if some files have changed their location, duplication can be prevented.

  • When executing the command below select “A [overwrite all files]” if prompted with an overwrite confirmation message. Remember to replace the VERSION placeholder with the correct version number

      $ cp /home/bitnami/ResourceSpaceVERSION/* -r .
      $ rm -r /home/bitnami/ResourceSpaceVERSION
  • Replace any files containing local changes from your backup copy (for example, config.php, title.gif or others).

  • Restart services.

      $ sudo /opt/bitnami/ restart
