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 /opt/bitnami/apps/resourcespace/htdocs/include/config.php, which stores all the ResourceSpace configuration settings.
Stop all the services.
$ sudo /opt/bitnami/ctlscript.sh stop
Download the latest version of ResourceSpace from the official website.
$ cd /home/bitnami $ wget http://www.resourcespace.org/downloads/ResourceSpaceVERSION.zip
Copy all files from the new version over the old files in /opt/bitnami/apps/resourcespace/htdocs. Alternatively, remove existing files first (except those in the /filestore directory) and copy the new files to the /opt/bitnami/apps/resourcespace/htdocs 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.
$ unzip /home/bitnami/ResourceSpaceVERSION.zip $ rm ResourceSpaceVERSION.zip
Replace any files containing local changes from your backup copy (for example, config.php, title.gif or others).
$ sudo /opt/bitnami/ctlscript.sh start
