Updating H-Sphere to 2.3.1 Beta


This document explains how to update your H-Sphere to 2.3.1 Beta with experimental VPS support. To perform this update, you have to be logged in as root.

  1. Make sure to have H-Sphere 2.3 final installed:
    # cat ~cpanel/shiva/psoft_config/HS_VERSION
    If you have an older version, contact support@psoft.net or read upgrade instruction for earlier versions.
  2. Download 2.3.1 beta installation script from the Positive Software web site at http://www.psoft.net/shiv/HS/U23/U23.1/U23.1:
    # wget http://www.psoft.net/shiv/HS/U23/U23.1/U23.1
  3. Stop H-Sphere Control Panel using the following commands:
    (they depend on the OS type and java servlet running engine):
    Linux + ApacheJServ:
    # /etc/rc.d/init.d/httpdcp stop
    FreeBSD + ApacheJserv:
    # /usr/local/etc/rc.d/apachecp.sh stop
    Any OS + Tomcat:
    # ~cpanel/tomcat/tomcat.sh stop
  4. Run the update script by typing:
    sh ./U23.1
  5. Note: The help shows. Choose what you want to update and follow the help.
  6. To update H-Sphere, type:
    # install
  7. To update your SiteStudio to 1.6 RC1, type:
    # ss
  8. To update WebShell 3 to the latest available build, type:
    # webshell
  9. If you updated SiteStudio, restart your SiteStudio ImageMaker. The simplest way to do it is type:
    killall java
    Kill these processes one by one if you have any other java processes running.
  10. 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
    Any OS + Tomcat:
    # ~cpanel/tomcat/tomcat.sh start
  11. After your have completed the upgrade, check the version of H-Sphere using the following command:
    # cat ~cpanel/shiva/psoft_config/HS_VERSION

    You will get something similar to this:
    2.3.1 is the version of H-Sphere,
    350 is the build number,
    20030413 is the build date (in YYYYMMDD format)
