Updating H-Sphere to 2.3.2 Patch 4

 

This document explains how to upgrade H-Sphere from:
- 2.3.1 Betas
- 2.3.1 RCs
- 2.3.1 Final
- 2.3.1 Patches 1 to 9
- 2.3.2 Release
- 2.3.2 Patches
to 2.3.2 Patch 4.

If you have H-Sphere older than 2.3.1, make sure to upgrade your H-Sphere to 2.3.1 Final first.

This patch fixes Webshell3 autologin problem under reseller and disk usage loading.

IMPORTANT:
1. Owners of 2.4 betas - DON'T update to version 2.3.2.
2. To ensure correct performance of new features, upgrade your Winbox to 2.3.2 Patch 4.

Procedure

  1. Make sure to have any of the 2.3.1 versions installed:
    # cat ~cpanel/shiva/psoft_config/hsphere.properties | grep HS_VERSION
    If you have an older version, contact support@psoft.net or read upgrade instruction for previous versions.
  2. Download 2.3.2 Patch 4 installation package from the Positive Software site:
    # wget http://www.psoft.net/shiv/HS/U23/U23.2P4/U23.2P4
    * Make sure the directory you are downloading it to doesn't contain any other U23.2 file!
  3. Stop H-Sphere using one of the following commands:
    Linux + ApacheJServ:
    # /etc/rc.d/init.d/httpdcp stop
    FreeBSD + ApacheJserv:
    # /usr/local/etc/rc.d/apachecp.sh stop
  4. Run the update script by typing:
    sh ./U23.2P4
    Note: The help shows. Choose what you want to update and follow the help.
  5. To update H-Sphere, type:
    # install
  6. Make sure to update H-Sphere if you are going to update WebShell!
  7. To update your SiteStudio to 1.6 RC3:
    Important: If your SiteStudio is installed on a separate server, log into that server as root and perform this procedure skipping the update of H-Sphere and WebShell.
    Run update script:
    # ss
    If the update breaks SiteStudio demo, follow the Troubleshooter.
  8. To update WebShell 3 to the latest available build, type:
    # webshell
  9. Stop Imaker:
    kill -9 `ps -axw|grep imaker.sh |grep -v grep|awk '{print $1}'`
    kill -9 `ps -axw|grep ImageMaker|grep -v grep|awk '{print $1}'`
  10. Start ImageMaker:
    Linux:
    /hsphere/shared/SiteStudio/imaker.sh >& /hsphere/shared/SiteStudio/var/error_log 2>&1 &
    FreeBSD:
    /hsphere/shared/SiteStudio/imaker.sh >& /hsphere/shared/SiteStudio/var/error_log &
  11. Start H-Sphere CP using one of the following commands:
    Linux + ApacheJServ:
    # /etc/rc.d/init.d/httpdcp start
    FreeBSD + ApacheJserv:
    # /usr/local/etc/rc.d/apachecp.sh start
  12. Check the version of H-Sphere using the following command:
    # cat ~cpanel/shiva/psoft_config/hsphere.properties | grep HS_VERSION

    You will see a line similar to this:
    HS_VERSION = 2.3.2.390.20040303
    Where:
    2.3.2 is the version of H-Sphere,
    390 is H-Sphere build,
    20040303 is the build date (in YYYYMMDD format)
