Updating H-Sphere to 2.3.2 Patch 3


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 3.

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 H-Sphere backup script problem that appeared in 2.3.2 Patch 2.

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.


  1. Make sure to have any of the 2.3.1 versions installed:
    # cat ~cpanel/shiva/psoft_config/hsphere.properties | grep HS_VERSION
  2. Download 2.3.2 Patch 3 installation package from the Positive Software site:
    * 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 ./U23.2P3
    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
  8. To update WebShell 3 to the latest available build, type:
    # webshell
    Note: Webshell update is related to the Microsoft Security Update.
  9. Stop Imaker by running:
    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:
    for Linux:
    /hsphere/shared/SiteStudio/imaker.sh >& /hsphere/shared/SiteStudio/var/error_log 2>&1 &
    for 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:
    2.3.2 is the version of H-Sphere,
    389 is H-Sphere build,
