Upgrade Multicraft

Before running the commands shown on this page, you should load the Bitnami stack environment by executing the installdir/use_APPNAME script (Linux and MacOS) or by clicking the shortcut in the Start Menu under “Start -> Bitnami APPNAME Stack -> Application console” (Windows). On OS X VMs, the installation directory is /opt/bitnami and OS X VM users can click the “Open Terminal” button to run commands. Learn more about the Bitnami stack environment and about OS X VMs.

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.

In order to upgrade Multicraft, you must follow these steps:

  • Stop all Multicraft services:

    $ sudo installdir/ stop
  • Download the latest available Multicraft version from to a temporary directory and unpack it. In this case, we’ll suppose that Multicraft files were unpacked to /tmp/multicraft.

  • Copy the new binaries and configure their ownership:

    $ sudo rsync -a /tmp/multicraft/bin/ installdir/apps/multicraft/bin/
    $ sudo chown -R multicraft:multicraft installdir/apps/multicraft/bin/
    $ sudo chown root:multicraft installdir/apps/multicraft/bin/useragent
    $ sudo chmod 4550 installdir/apps/multicraft/bin/useragent
  • Copy the new front-end files with proper ownership:

    $ sudo rsync -a /tmp/multicraft/panel/ installdir/apps/multicraft/htdocs/
    $ sudo chown -R bitnami:daemon installdir/apps/multicraft/htdocs/
    $ sudo chown -R daemon:daemon installdir/apps/multicraft/htdocs/assets/
    $ sudo chown -R daemon:daemon installdir/apps/multicraft/htdocs/protected/
  • Start all Multicraft services:

    $ sudo installdir/ start
  • Run the install.php script by browsing to http://localhost/install.php*. When running the wizard, you must ensure the used database is bitnami_multicraft_panel for the Panel, and bitnami_multicraft_daemon for the Daemon.

  • Once the wizard finishes, delete the install.php file:

    $ sudo rm installdir/apps/multicraft/htdocs/install.php

After this, you will have successfully upgraded Multicraft to the latest available version.

You can find more information on Multicraft’s upgrade procedure in the official Multicraft documentation.
